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 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 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 or apostrophe)
- Alternate spacing (e.g., your name appears with or without specific spaces)
- Known misspellings (if a document contains a misspelling)
If you commonly use a preferred first or middle name that differs from your legal name, select Yes in this section and enter the preferred information.
Select the appropriate option.
Enter additional information about your gender identity in the space provided. This question is optional.
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/province, and county of birth.
Make sure you enter your date of birth correctly; failure to do so could cause significant delays with matching documentation and test scores.
