Apology Letters

   Declining College Acceptance

Dear {Office of Admissions},

I’m writing to let you know that I will not be attending {university} in the fall.

I greatly appreciate the acceptance, and the generous merit aid extended to me. I am honored that your institution found me to be a suitable candidate.

However, after reviewing my options, my family and I have decided that {other college} is a better fit for me. This was a difficult decision, as I have long admired {university}, especially the {program} program.

Thank you again for your consideration.
