Information About Your Name

The first and last name shown in your TEA account must exactly match the first and last name on the ID documents you will present on the day of the test.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the first
and last name on your admission ticket or authorization letter match the ID documents you will present on the day of the test. If your ID documents do not match the name you use when you register, you may be prohibited from testing, your test fees may be forfeited and/or your test scores may be canceled.

  • You must supply your entire last (family) name. If you have a multiple-part last name, be sure to supply your complete last name (e.g., Pena-Delgado or Suarez Thomas) as it appears on the ID documents you will present on the day of the test
  • Be sure to provide your entire first (given) name. Do not register under a nickname and do not register with only an initial as your first name.
  • If you register by phone, please be sure you are registered under your entire name as it appears on your ID.
  • If your TEA and ETS accounts have already been created, please confirm that the name on your ID documents still matches the name that appears in your accounts. If they do not, you must update your information.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that your ID documents match your admission ticket or authorization letter on the day of the test.
