Utah Valley University apologizes to 300 students who got 4-year scholarship offers by mistake

The offer seemed too good to be true: A four-year scholarship at Utah Valley University just for the asking.

Turns out, it was a mistake that disappointed hundreds of parents and students.

Administrators apologized and blamed the confusion on a clerical error discovered after they had alerted 300 high school seniors they were eligible for a full tuition award worth $4,122 a year.

University officials said the scholarship is actually based on grades and academic achievement testing, but only the test scores were considered while sending the scholarship notices.

Utah Valley University has more than 28,000 students, making it Utah's second-largest after the University of Utah. UVU boasts that its tuition is a bargain at little more than half the national average.
