You need to specify clearly what is your last name and first name.

If your transcript says
Smith, John Micheal (notice the comma) then it's understandable that Smith is the last name.
If your transcript says
Smith John Michael (notice no comma) then it's not understandable that Smith is your last name. In this case you need to provide documentation preferably from your college and let them specify which is your last and which is you first name.
