Emory University is out of the penalty box for misrepresenting academic data for the purposes of school rankings, Forbes.com says.

Forbes recently released its list of “Top 25 Best Southern Schools of 2015.”

“Re-entering the list this year is Emory University in Atlanta, GA. After completing a two year penalty for misreporting data, the school jumps right back in at No. 10 in the South and No. 79 overall,” Forbes says. To read the full story, click here.

In 2012, Emory admitted that it provided inaccurate information about student performance, inflating SAT and ACT scores and class rankings, according to NBC News.
