A Colorado university may have to reprint 9,200 diplomas thanks to a typo.

The Associated Press reports that the outgoing editor of the newspaper at Colorado Mesa University was checking his diploma when he saw the mistake.

Alec Williams’ diploma and others issued since 2012 were conferred by the chair of CMU’s “Coard of Trustees.”

He told The Daily Sentinel that he laughed about it, but then got frustrated because he has student loans and a diploma with a typo.

CMU President Tim Foster said the university will send corrected diplomas to this year’s graduates and will offer the correction to others.

Foster says CMU designs its diplomas, “so this mistake is all ours.”
