Errors Made in Notifying CSD Master’s Program Applicants

Byron SpiceTuesday, February 17, 2015

About 800 applicants to one of SCS’s master’s programs, the Master of Science in Computer Science program in the Computer Science Department, on Monday were erroneously sent acceptance letters via email. This error was the result of serious mistakes in our process for generating acceptance letters. Once the error was discovered, the university moved quickly to notify affected applicants.

We understand the disappointment created by this mistake, and deeply apologize to the applicants for this miscommunication. We are currently reviewing our notification process to help ensure this does not happen in the future. 

Applicants can direct any questions or concerns to Tracy Farbacher, program coordinator, via email at
