If i change name in my passport, do i need to get my name changed in Sevis Record and my school record too?

Asked 9 months ago - West New York, NJ

I am on F1 visa currently on OPT. I don't have any last name in my passport, my university records/i20 has my last name as LNU.
If i change name in my passport by getting my first name split , do i need to get my name changed in Sevis Record and my school record/I20 document too?
since my OPT started i have already received my final i20 from university.
