Flagler College released this statement on Monday, Feb. 17, about student data misreporting. More information to come:
Flagler College has learned of misreported data of freshman entering classes from fall 2010 to fall 2013. As a result of our preliminary review, a senior admissions officer has resigned after taking sole responsibility for misreporting test scores, grade point averages, and class ranks of entering freshman.
We have notified appropriate organizations, agencies, and accrediting bodies of the situation and have informed them that we have commissioned an independent investigation. We will disclose the findings once we receive the final report. We are reviewing what happened and are developing policies, procedures, and systems to ensure this does not occur again.
