No.  The student would have to make the request and provide the
supporting documentation.

Good evening, colleagues.  I'm taking a stand, and I need to know if you
would do the same.


Student graduates and later returns and completes an application for
faculty employment (in our applicant tracking system).  The SSN and date
of birth match, but the name has now changed (due to marriage, divorce,
or court order).  Since the former student's file now will be also a
faculty record, I've been asked to allow the applicant tracking system
to overwrite the name information in the student record.  I said no - we
only process a name change at the request of the student when
accompanied by sufficient documentation.


Question, would you allow the applicant data to overwrite your student
record data?
