Officials at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia are apologizing for accidentally disclosing the grade-point averages of hundreds of students.

The school's provost notified the campus of the error through an email on Tuesday.

Saint Joseph's spokeswoman Carolyn Steigleman says the mistake affected about 500 students in the Haub School of Business.

She says the upperclassmen had been sent an email March 6 to gauge their interest in an internship in Italy. A file containing students' names, email addresses and GPAs was inadvertently attached.

Steigleman says officials immediately apologized to the affected students. The provost sent a follow-up email to the larger school community this week.

Just last week, St. Joe’s put out a news release about four of its business school disciplines being ranked among U.S. News and World  Report’s Top 25 best business schools.

Saint Joseph's is a private Catholic university serving nearly 9,000 students.
