How do I change my Name?
Last Updated 4 years ago

Users must change their name on their certification before it can be changed in Aspen and RIDEMap. We are required to check the public website to make sure the name has been changed on the certification before we can change it in the system. RIDE validates data based on last names, so names must match.

Requests for name changes on certifications should be mailed to the RIDE Certification Office at:
Rhode Island Department of Education
Office of Educator Quality and Certification
255 Westminster Street, 4th Floor
Providence, RI 02903-3400

or emailed to:

Please include proof of the name change. If you are mailing the documentation, please mark "name change" on the envelope.

Once your certification has changed please open a ticket so we can change your name in Aspen.

If, once all name changes have occurred, you decide you would like your RIDEmap username changed to reflect your name change, please submit a ticket to RIDE.
