It is important that the name on your credential evaluation report matches the name on your legal documents and academic records. Some people have three names: a first name, a middle name, and a last name. The last name is also commonly known worldwide as a surname or family name. For example, with the name Jose Garcia Fernandez, the first name is Jose, there is no middle name, and the surname is Garcia Fernandez. With the name Ravi Kumar, the first name is Ravi, there is no middle name, and the surname is Kumar. If you only have one name, you can enter it as a first name or last name, and whichever field is empty, please use a period symbol (.).
