How to get my middle name added to my account?

Hello,

 

When I created an account with ISC2 website, the form only has provision for First and Last Name.   When I logged in and tried to add my middle name, it won't let me.   I'm concerned as my driver's license as well as my passport has my middle name on it...Will this cause an issue when my credentials are being verified in the testing center?

 

Please advise.

The official policy is at https://www.isc2.org/Register-for-Exam.  It implies that the middle name is irrelevant for name matching policies. My ID contains a middle initial, which did not bother them. If concerned, bring a copy of the policy to the venue -- and then throw it away after checking in because you will not be permitted to bring it into the testing room Smiley Happy.

 

 

The first and last name on your ID must exactly match the first and last name that you used to register with Pearson VUE. (For example, if your driver’s license shows your name as Charles, be sure to register as Charles — not as Chuck or Charlie.) If your names don’t match, you must bring proof of a legal name change to the test center on your test day. Your document must be an original (not a photocopy or fax). The only legal documents that Pearson VUE will accept are: Marriage licenses Divorce decrees Court-sanctioned legal name change documents If you made a mistake with how you registered your name with Pearson VUE, you must contact (ISC)² to make a correction before your test date. Name changes cannot be made on your test day, including at the test center. If your names don’t match, you’ll be asked to leave. You’ll also forfeit your testing fee.

Thank you so much for the answer and patience....I feel better knowing that middle name doesn't matter.

@unixgeek21 Thank you for reaching out to us. We strongly suggest to update your (ISC)² and Pearson VUE profiles to match your ID 100%; this includes the middle name/initial. For any name updates, please send me a copy of your ID (redact any important information and send password protected) and I will be happy to make the updates to your accounts.

 

Best Regards,
