(Lewisburg) -- The president of Bucknell University says an internal investigation has revealed that school officials falsified students' average SAT scores.
President John Bravman says mean SAT results were inflated over the past seven years by about 16 points on a 1,600-point scale.
Bravman disclosed the problem in a letter to students, staff and alumni of the selective liberal arts school in Lewisburg, Union County.
He says the discrepancy was discovered by an enrollment administrator. Bravman attributes the inaccurate figures to officials who no longer work at Bucknell.
Bravman says he doesn't know why the college entrance exam scores were doctored, but apologized for the misrepresentation. Bravman became president in 2010.
Bucknell enrolls about 3,600 students.
