(CBS DENVER) — A high-school student in Aurora waiting to hear back from colleges says his family was one of those that received an erroneous email from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs this week implying he was accepted.

Connor Ireland is a senior at Vista PEAK Preparatory School. He told CBS4 he was pleased to learn on Thursday he had apparently been accepted to the school.

The email from university said “Welcome to the UCCS Mountain Lion Family” and went on to provide resources for the parents of future students.
