SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) - Hundreds of prospective students wrongly received acceptance brochures to Texas State University in an error blamed on a mailing service.

KVUE-TV (https://bit.ly/1DfQTzN ) reported Tuesday that more than 450 potential students received the congratulatory documents last week.

An official with the school in San Marcos says a third-party mailing service made the mistake. The informational brochure had details on orientation and directed students how to choose the right dormitory for TSU, with enrollment topping 36,000.

School authorities say the brochures went out to potential students who applied but their documents were incomplete. Some of the students have since completed their applications and were accepted, while others were denied enrollment.

TSU officials were mailing letters this week to all of the individuals acknowledging the error and clarifying their enrollment status.
