@redlantern222 It’s no problem, it’s good that you were able to catch this early on. Write in detail your correction in a word document and attach it to docs@applyucsupport.net include your name, application ID, DOB, and Email you used in the uc applcation. You should get a confirmation that it has been attached to your UC application and it will be sent to every UC you applied to. You won’t see any update on the application on your end but it would be available for the reviewer.
