St. Joseph University Accidentally Leaks Student Grades Via Email

According to, a mass email sent March 6 from the Saint Joseph University's Haub School of Business dean's office accidentally included student's grade-point averages. Officials say that the report card was attached to a solicitation for an Italian internship that was sent to nearly 500 undergraduate students.

University Provost Brice Wachterhauser sent out an apology to students and faculty, describing the leak as an "internal human error," and emphasizing the school's commitment to privacy. Federal law forbids a student's grades from being disclosed without written consent.

Saint Joseph's spokeswoman Carolyn Steigleman said the university's legal team is reviewing the situation. She added that recipients were told about the error the same day it occurred.
