If you are sending any documentation or test scores in which your name is listed differently than it appears on your application, select Yes in this section and enter the alternate information. This ensures that your documents are matched to your application; failure to do so could cause significant delays.
Examples of alternate names include:
- 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 or apostrophe)
- Alternate spacing (e.g. your name appears with or without specific spaces)
- Known misspellings (if a document contains a misspelling)
Select the appropriate option.
Enter your date of birth in MM/DD/YYYY format. For example, January 7, 1989 would be listed as 01/07/1989. Then, enter your country, city, state/territory, and county of birth.
