When filling out your profile information, make sure to fill it out with your legal information. That means no nicknames, no fake addresses, etc!
If you need to change your profile information, check out this section.
We’ll go through each section of the profile that you may encounter.
- Email address – make sure to put down an email that is correct. For certain courses, the state allows us to email certificates. You’ll need a valid email address in order to receive it in your email.
- Phone number – put down a real phone number that we or the state can reach you at. Some states require the phone number to be printed on your certificate or filed with the state.
- First name – use your legal first name! This is going to appear on your certificate.
- Middle initial – this is optional. If you have a middle name, please use the first letter of your middle name.
- Last name – use your legal last name! This is going to appear on your certificate. That means that if you have a hyphenated last name or more than one last name, you’ll need to type the whole thing out.
