Alternate Name

If you are sending any documentation to SOPHAS where your name is listed differently than it appears on your application, you MUST COMPLETE THIS SECTION UNDER “BIOGRAPHIC INFORMATION.” Failure to complete this section can prevent important documents from being matched to your application.

IMPORTANT: GRE, TOEFL, or MCAT scores sent electronically do NOT integrate with this field. If your name on your GRE, TOEFL, or MCAT test differs from that on your application, you must contact SOPHAS to have your scores manually matched. Please see the “Standardized Tests” section of our Instructions and FAQ for more information.

Examples of alternate names include:

  • Maiden names
  • Nicknames
  • “Westernized” names
  • Alternate punctuation (your name appears with or without a hyphen or apostrophe)
  • Alternate spacing (your name appears with or without specific spaces)
  • Known misspellings (if a document contains a misspelling)

Select male or female.
