SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Nearly 500 applicants who were applying to Texas State University received brochures that were a little misleading. According to Jamye Blaschke, a spokesperson for the university, the brochures sent out March 27 had “Congratulations” on it and outlines how to continue the enrollment process.
The brochures were incorrectly sent to 454 students with incomplete admission applications. Blaschke says since the brochures went out, some of those students have completed their applications and received acceptance letters, while a smaller number have been denied. The majority of the 454 prospective students still have incomplete applications.
“To the best of my knowledge, a mis-mailing of this nature has not happened before,” explains Blaschke. “University Admissions has worked with this vendor for more than four years without incident. To put this in context, University Admissions mails out more than 750,000 letters and publications on an annual basis.”
The university will be sending out a letter on Tuesday to the 454 applicants who have been denied admission or still have incomplete admission applications acknowledging the error and clarifying their status.
