Different name on SAT admission slip

Glow1ngGlow1ng 0 replies1 threadsRegistered User New Member
For one of my AP classes this semester, I had to register on collegboard.com. I am transgender and my name isn't legally changed but it is changed partially in powerschool (my legal name is set as my middle name), and regularly seeing it causes some anxiety so I asked my teacher if I can register as my preferred name (in powerschool) and they said yes. Even my school distributed email is my preferred name.

A couple weeks later, I learn I have to register for the upcoming SAT (which I just did today) and it said to contact customer service to change the name on my admission slip. I was planning on using my school administered ID since I'm under 21 but it may have my legal name set as my middle name (I didn't put a middle name on college board), and when I do change my name it will also change on the college board website which I frequent.

Is there anything I can do or should I just suck it up and call customer service before September 30th? I wish the website had a "preferred name" section to display the chosen name but still have you filed under your legal name to prevent situations like this in the future.
