How do I reject an admissions offer after I have already accepted it

Recently I accepted an admissions offer at Penn State University and paid the acceptance fee of 300 dollars. Now, I have received an acceptance letter from New York University and wish to attend the ladder. How do I get Penn State to know I'm no longer interested in attending, even though I already paid the acceptance fees for the admissions offer?

    Email admissions at [email protected]

    Put in your name, and your student id. That is the code you used to sign into their portal with. For example, I might be LVP4282 (for Lucy Van Pelt and the numbers attached).

    Tell them you are withdrawing your acceptance of their admission and will be attending NYU.

    Did you have a roommate? Tell them also-

    ^^^ This, although you don' t have to name the school you'll be attending instead if you don't want to. Simply writing that you'll be enrolling in another college is sufficient.

    Probably spell check but you’ll be attending the “latter” not ladder.
