Your passport is the basic international document which identifies you as a citizen of your country. The spelling of your name given in your passport should be used for all records while you are in the United States. The spelling of your name on your visa will be used on your I-20 record.

Always keep a copy of your passport in a safe place, and use the copy to provide documentation if you send it in for renewal.
