How to reject Fordham offer

How do I reject Fordham's offer of acceptance? I got into one of my top colleges and I want to open up a slot for people who were waitlisted, but I can't find it anywhere on their website. Thanks!

    If you create a Fordham ID, there's an option to withdraw on my.fordham.edu

    Maybe I am being stupid, but I can't find this anywhere! Under which tab can I find info for saying I'm not going to Fordham??

    @sbean98 For most schools you do not have to tell them you are not attending- you may do this as a courtesy but they will know on May 1 when you have not responded that you have chosen to go elsewhere. If you'd like you could send a short email to admissions, but if they haven't specifically asked don't worry.
    Also, many people erroneously believe that if they decline, then a waitlist spot will open up. This is not necessarily true. A school accepts many more students than they want or need to attend. They know historically what percentage of students will accept admission (called yield). Only if this number ends up short will they go to a waitlist.
