Frequently Asked Questions


Can I have a former name removed from the College’s public register?

The Registrar has the authority to permit the deletion of a former name from the register, upon request by the member, provided the member has never taught under that name. To make the request, a member must provide:

  • a current criminal record check showing all names, including the name the member is requesting to have removed
  • a letter from current and previous employers verifying they have never taught under the name they want removed
  • a completed Request to Remove Former Name from Public Register form; an affidavit from the member attesting that information in the form is the truth
  • a $25 fee.
