Default You'll need the paper for the rest of your life

You should get your college to write an official letter with college letter head paper and signed by the dean and registrar that both names belong to the same person.

This document you will be holding with for the rest of your life.

You'll need it when you apply to ECFMG, take USMLE exam, apply to residency, get a job in USA ....etc
