Albany State University's president is responding to an audit showing the school admitted hundreds of freshman who didn't meet minimum requirements.

Everette Freeman, president of Albany State University told students and faculty [Friday], the university is moving quickly to prevent the problem from happening again.

Freeman says, "I am grateful for the board of regents for pointing out that we had an excessive number of students who did not meet the state mandated requirements for entrance. And moving forward we will recommend to those students who don’t meet our requirements, that they attend one of our sister excess institutions."

Freeman says, Albany State is stating to use new training procedures and controls.
