DS-360 correction to add name I had used for school enrollment.

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Thailand

I stated in the DS-260 (submitted) that I had not used any other name than my passport name. That is, I used my maiden name, Asian style. I just noticed that I signed up for accredited American online courses using my husband's last name, because that is what I will use in the US. (after legal name change).

My two education transcripts that I mentioned in the SD-260 show that name, which is of course not my legal name. Therefore, I have indeed used a name other than my passport name.

So what do I do now? As I say, I have submitted the DS-260, but not yet the Packet 3 -- I am now in Vietnam waiting for my police clearance, with my Thai clearance also being processed now.

Do I let it slide and hope no-one notices or cares, and it goes through, or do I submit the correction with Packet 3?

Is some major problem likely, such as I will have to have new police clearances with the new name? Or all sorts of legal documents?

Thanks, Linh
