Help Name on ECFMG and Diploma miss match

Hello all, so I am applying for the first time on ECFMG, for step 1, and setting up the account I used my full name as on my passport, including middle (first middle last) and when it came to the point about my diploma I realized that my diploma only has first and last. Does this warrant some sort of deans letter confirmation because it might be difficult for me to get in time as I moved from the city of my medical school or is this difference tolerable?

As long as the first and last names are matching between your Diploma and your ECFMG application, you won't face problems.

ECFMG specifically mentioned that they tolerate dropping middle names in the application/diploma.
