If you already have a PennKey and wish to change it, the University requires that you meet at least one of the following criteria.
- You have legally changed your name
- If this is your situation, please start by updating your official University record through your Program Office
- Your PennName is judged offensive to the Penn Community
- You are being harassed or threatened through email.
If you meet these criteria, please contact email@example.com explaining your situation.
If you do not meet these criteria, you are not eligible for a name change. The rules on this are quite strict; please see the University's policy on this at http://www.upenn.edu/computing/pennkey/help/faq.html#g100
Lifelong Email Address Alternative
You can use your lifelong email address instead of your "short" Wharton address. This address can be configured as a Reply-To for your email account, and will be yours after you graduate. For more information please see Lifelong Email Address
