Saudi Arabia’s new deputy crown prince didn’t get a degree from Lewis & Clark College, the college said Friday, contradicting a statement last week by the Saudi Embassy.
The Saudi Embassy said this month that Prince Mohammed bin Nayef graduated from Lewis & Clark College in 1981, the Associated Press reports.
The college said in a statement that the prince completed coursework in the late 1970s but didn’t get a degree. The prince is “remembered fondly by our alumni, faculty, and staff,” the college said, adding it’s proud Nayef studied there.
The Saudi embassy said the error resulted from a mistranslation.
