    The University of Texas' Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs is apologizing for an embarrassing typo on a commencement program.

    Guests to the ceremony on Saturday where handed a program that read, Lyndon B. Johnson School of Pubic Affairs.

    "Obviously, we are mortified. It's beyond embarrassing," said Susan Binford, the school’s assistant dean for communications, on TheBlaze.com.

    The school also issued an apology on Twitter that said, "Our deepest apologies to our 2012 graduates for the egregious typo in our commencement program. We are working to distribute new programs."

    Media blogger Jim Romenesko also mentioned that the school misspelled egregious as "eggregious" in their apology tweet.  That tweet has since been corrected.

    The LBJ school said the error has been corrected and new programs are being printed and sent to graduates.
