Some UB students who received premature acceptance letters are being accepted

AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) — About one-fourth of applicants who received erroneous acceptance letters from the University at Buffalo have been contacted again to be told they are being accepted to University programs.

Nearly 1000 of the students were either offered fall admission or spring admission with a spot on the waiting list for fall admission; the others were conditionally accepted into the University’s Educational Opportunities Program.

Some of the applicants withdrew, more had their applications reviewed and rejected, and the majority were determined to be incomplete.

“Since the April 13 transmission of the erroneous email, the university’s Office of Enrollment Management has strengthened and implemented additional internal controls to prevent future miscommunications,” according to a statement issued by John DellaContrada, University Associate Vice-President for Media Relations & Stakeholder Communications.
