A student who is declining an offer of enrollment at a university can adjust this letter template to let the admissions office know that they've chosen another college.
Thank you so much for keeping in touch throughout the application and admissions process. There is so much to love about Anystate University! I especially enjoyed the tour and seeing the creek that runs through the campus. The mentor matching program for engineering undergrads was amazing, and it was something I didn’t see anywhere else.
It is with regret that I must decline the offer of enrollment. Ultimately, due to family considerations, I decided to stay closer to home and will attend Otherstate University.
I wish you the best as you shape the best possible incoming freshman class.
