How to update your gender status

Indiana University respects that gender is fluid and subject to change. You’re free to change your gender on record if you don’t identify with it.

All we need is a signed statement from you requesting that we change your gender. Be sure to include your 10-digit university ID number in your written request.

Though we realize gender can fall on a spectrum, the Department of Education recognizes only the gender designations of male and female. So your record must hold one of these two binary values.

We may refuse any document that appears to be fraudulent or unreliable. All documents must be in English or must be presented with a verifiably accurate English translation.

Where to send your statement
