上周三,事情终于出现的转机。UCI的正校长Howard Gillman在官网发布道歉声明,并宣布:所有因成绩单出问题被取消资格的290人将全部恢复资格。

Howard Gillman的致歉信正文如下:

To the Anteater community:

The stories of our students whose college dreams were crushed by our decision to withdraw admissions to hundreds of students are heartbreaking. And unacceptable.

This process is not working. We are a university recognized for advancing the American Dream, not impeding it. This situation is rocking us to our core because it is fundamentally misaligned with our values.

I must step in and change our direction. Effective immediately, all students who received provisional acceptances into UCI will be fully admitted, except those whose trans clearly indicate that they did not meet our academic standards. Those standards are: No Ds or Fs their senior year; a senior-year grade point average of at least 3.0; completion of all A-G requirements outlined by the University of California; and required test scores as indicated on the students’ admission portals.

Even for students whose trans show that these requirements were not met, we will establish an expedited process to allow students to make the case for extenuating circumstances, and otherwise will work with students to identify other possible pathways into the university.

We’re trying to understand how we under-estimated the number of students who planned to enroll this fall. We’re also trying to understand why we chose to notify students in an insensitive way or couldn’t answer their telephone calls adequately. I intend to find out so this will never happen again. I directed our internal auditor to review the admissions process and suggest areas for improvement. I plan to have a preliminary report within 60 days.

In closing, the students and their families have my personal, sincerest apology. We should not have treated you this way over a missed deadline.

We will welcome all of our wonderful students who worked so hard to satisfy the requirements for UCI admission, and as we move forward we will do everything we can to earn the trust and loyalty of our community.

Chancellor Howard Gillman

根据Howard Gillman的解释,所有因成绩单问题被取消录取的学生将全部被重新录取,但是因为成绩问题而被取消的学生则要满足一定标准才能申请重新录取,具体标准为:高中最后一年成绩不低于3.0;课程成绩不能有D或F;完成加州大学要求的所有必修课程;标化考试成绩满足申请标准。
