Changing Your Username

If you would like to change your username, there are a few steps to complete and a few things to understand.

  • You will have a new email address and will have sole responsibility of notifying contacts of your new address.
  • If you are a faculty member that uses the Blackboard system, you will also need to manually update your Blackboard user profile to include your new email address.
  • If you have queries in Peoplesoft, you will need to save them as they won’t transfer over to the renamed account.
  • In addition, if you are subscribed to any mailing lists, you must unsubscribe with your original email address before your username change occurs, and then re-subscribe with your new email address after the change.
  • After your account is renamed, your PeopleSoft Finance access (if applicable) will be unavailable for 24 hours and your Blackboard access will be unavailable for 3-6 hours.

How to Change Your Username

In myBoiseState, access PeopleSoft, then click on  Menu > Self Service > Campus Personal Information > Name and click “Edit” on the preferred name.
