The student is not mentioned in the statement or in legal documents.
Stanford sailing coach John Vandemoer pleaded guilty last month to a conspiracy to make efforts to arrange bribes of $ 110,000 and $ 160,000 to the sailing program in exchange for incorrectly designating two applicants as sailing recruits. None of the students had a competitive sailing experience, reports the criminal complaint.
The money was led by rich parents to a charity led by Rick Singer, who then sent the payments to Vandemoer, according to the complaint.
However, neither student completed the application process, so neither was admitted or enrolled in the school, Stanford said.
However, a third student was associated with a contribution to Stanford's sailing program, from the central charity to the scam, known as the Key Worldwide Foundation, said Stanford.
"The contribution was made a few months after admission to Stanford, the student had no recommendation from the former sailing coach or any other coach and was never affiliated with the Stanford sailing program or any other Stanford athleticist. Team, & # 39 said Stanford.
