Radford University To Replace Diplomas With Misspelling

Posted: Updated:

RADFORD, Va. (AP) - Hundreds of Radford University graduates have received diplomas that had Virginia spelled incorrectly.
    
The school acknowledged Tuesday that both undergraduate and graduate students who graduated in the fall of 2012 and spring of 2013 received the marred diplomas. More than 1,400 students received the erroneous diplomas.
    
University spokesman Joe Carpenter says the error was caused when an employee retyped the narrative on the diploma after the software that produces them was upgraded in 2012. The third "I'' was missing from "Virginia."
    
Carpenter says corrected diplomas will be mailed to graduates as soon as possible. He says the school regrets the error.
