Your Legal Name
This section pulls in information you entered when you created your account. Confirm that what appears here is correct; click the Profile Section link to make changes.
If you are sending any documentation or test scores where your name is listed differently than it appears on your application, select Yes in this section and enter the alternate or former information. This ensures that your documents and test scores are matched to your application. Contact customer service so they can manually match these items to your application; failure to do so could cause significant delays.
Examples of alternate or former names include:
- Birth names (if different from current legal name)
- Maiden names
- Nicknames (e.g., "Bob" for Robert, "Beth" for Elizabeth, etc.)
- "Westernized" names
- Alternate punctuation (e.g., your name appears with/without a hyphen, apostrophe, or diacritical marking)
- Alternate spacing (e.g., your name appears with or without specific spaces)
- Known misspellings (if a document contains a misspelling)
Select the appropriate option. This information is required for reporting purposes to the US Federal government, using these values only.
Enter your date of birth in MM/DD/YYYY format. For example, January 7, 1989, would be listed as 01/07/1989. Make sure you enter your date of birth correctly; failure to do so could cause significant delays with matching documentation and test scores.
