UT Austin business school mistakenly sends deposit request to rejected applicants

AUSTIN, Texas — This week, the University of Texas at Austin mistakenly requested deposits from students who weren’t accepted into the school’s graduate business program. 

According to a statement from Texas McCombs News, an email was accidentally sent June 11 asking declined applicants to pay initial enrollment fees. 

The business school said this was caused by a technical error and has since apologized. 

“We understand the confusion and disappointment this email may have caused, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. If applications have any questions about their admissions status, they can verify it by logging into their portal,” the school said in a statement. 

Those who made the payments are expected to receive refunds as soon as possible, according to the school. 

To determine application status, future students can log into their online portal.

After the recent error, the school stated it wants to “remain committed to providing a transparent application experience.” 

This week, the business school also announced details on its new 17-story building, set to open in four years. 

The university began the demolition process on Dobie Center Garage, making way for the groundbreaking on the new Miriam and James J. Mulva Hall this fall.
