Form Reapplying with new Graduation Date!

Not many people know about that point..

If my (form 186) was accpeted and is now valid, it bears the dates of graduation and diploma, etc..
Now when your school sends a copy of a temporary diploma, it's rejected (ECFMG wants the final, not temporary..), you are required to re-apply online, and will be asked again the same 20 items..
The issuing date of the diploma on form 186 is jan 2009..now your school has issued your FINAL diploma and are willing to send it again, but the date on it is jan 2010, not 2009..
Can you change that date when re-applying online and being asked those questions? or is that a mistake? since you already have a valid form 186 with a date on it, jan 2009?

Quite tricky, I know..Hope anyone can help and may other people avoid it.

Idea! Re-validate form 186

Change the date in the 20 online questions to the new date.

Call ECFMG and ask them to re-validate form 186 and they'll ask you to do it again and they'll cancel the previous one.

There's no other way as far as I can see..

Thank you for your reply, But should I start the process all over again while I have a part of it that's valid? it takes one month to recieve a reply you know..so you really think the date issued on the diploma makes the problem? or is the Graduation date that makes it? (graduation date is correct on the diploma and form 186, the problem is with "date issued"..here we don't recieve diplomas except after one year internship).

Thanks again and your opinion is really appreciated.

Embarrassed Sorry I thought you are talking about the graduation date

Oh I was thinking the graduation date that is different!

They don't ask you about the date of issue in the 20 online questions. They only ask about the date of graduation. So you should have no problem.

If your Form 186 and the 20 online questions and the diploma are all having the same "graduation" date then you should have no problem and even if you do encounter problems in the future you can simply explain to them what happened and in worse case scenario they'll ask you to reapply Form 186.

Stop Wait

Oh wait.

If there's a question about the date of issue of the diploma then you have to answer the correct latest diploma and contact the ECFMG just like what I told you in the first reply.

Do Not Do Mistakes with ECFMG, the consequences can be devastating.

You have to call them and tell them about the discrepancy between your online application and your prior form 186 even if that means you have to go through the painful process of revalidating your form 186.
