Yale College President said Friday the school's policy was to revoke the admission of students who had falsified their applications. President Peter Salovey's remarks were only days after the former women's football coach in Yalein a massive college recording scandal.
Former Yale football coach Rudolph "Rudy" Meredith was charged with information about wire-break and wire-break conspiracy. He is one of 50 defendants in the recording scandal to whichbelonged to Hollwyood actresses.
Salovey said the college itself checks whether "others were involved in activities that distorted the recruitment and admission process of athletes," reports CBS News, Carter Evans.
Federal authorities claimed that parents had paid up to hosting consultant William "Rick" Singer to set standardized test scores and bribe college coaches and other insiders to bring their children to selected schools.
No students were charged. Authorities have said that in many cases the adolescents did not know what was going on.
In a news bulletin on Friday, Salovey said that the criminal acts allegedly committed by Singer and Meredith were "an affront to the deep-rooted values of our community and honesty," it says in the Yale Daily News.
Salovey said in a statement Friday that when applicants sign their applications, they confirm that the content is true and complete. He did not comment on specific actions of the school.
He said the college will also conduct its own review and consult external consultants to support and recommend changes.
