It’s important to remember that we will only verify documents when the name matches what’s on your Aspire Individual Profile.
If you’ve legally changed your name, and it is not reflected on the documents you submitted to the Aspire Registry (i.e., official transcripts, training documentation, etc.), we ask that you enter your former name into the Former Name field of the Personal Information section in your Individual Profile.
To do so, check Update my Aspire Profile and click Continue to reach the Personal Information tab. Remember to click Save and Continue through to the end of the online application, and hit Submit to permanently save your name change.
If you cannot make this change in your profile, you must complete our Name Change Request Form and upload your supporting documentation.
Accepted documentation includes:
- Marriage certificate
- Divorce decree
- Certificate of naturalization showing new name
- A notarized name/sex designation change form
- Court order for a name change
