RADFORD, Va. (AP) -- Radford University graduates are continuing to find mistakes in their diplomas as the school works on a plan to get corrected versions to nearly 1,500 former students.

The school said earlier this week that undergraduate and graduate students who graduated in the fall of 2012 and spring of 2013 received the marred diplomas. On many, the words "Virginia" and "thereto" were misspelled.

Graduate Marshall Wildberger tells the Richmond Times Dispatch he checked his diploma after the mistakes were first reported and noticed that his major -- information science and systems -- also was misspelled. He says the school should pay for reframing.

University spokesman Joe Carpenter says the errors were caused when an employee retyped the narrative on the diploma after the software that produces them was upgraded in 2012.
