Cal State LA mistake tells 500 they're out

January 7, 2011 12:40:10 AM PST
It was a false alarm for about 500 Cal State Los Angeles students who were told they had been academically disqualified from returning for winter quarter. The university told the Los Angeles Times that all of the students were on academic probation, but only 164 had actually been disqualified. The registrar's office sent the letters out the week after Christmas.

The mix-up was blamed on a mailing code error.
