thank you so much. may you please assist me with what will happen after this step.I had the same thing, what I did is print a paper from the student affairs office (or whichever office you're doing your papers in) that the person named in the diploma is the same person as the one in the passport and then you sign it from the dean's office and send it with the rest of your paperwork.
eg. name is John fillips in passport and Jon F. Phillips on diploma. the paper will say John fillips is Jon F. Phillips.
