HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) — Police say a 22-year-old woman called in bomb threats to Quinnipiac University's commencement to keep her family from learning that she wasn't graduating.

Danielle Shea, of Quincy, Massachusetts, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Meriden Superior Court.

Hamden police say Shea didn't attend the university this year, but her mother paid thousands of dollars she thought was for her daughter's education.

Police say Shea admitted she made two threatening calls after she was arrested Sunday at the campus athletic arena, where the commencement for the university's College of Arts and Sciences had been moved because of the threats. She was wearing a cap and gown she'd purchased.

Shea is being held on $20,000 bond. It is unclear if she has an attorney. The Associated Press has left messages at her mother's home.
