Eastern New Mexico University says it received the yuletide gift box this week along with a Christmas card and written apology.
The anonymous writer apologized for stealing toilet paper years ago and said a new dedication to Christian faith led to the deed.
"Jesus Christ has made such a difference in my life and has prompted me to repay for any sins..."
The box contained five packages, each containing 16 rolls of two-ply, septic-safe toilet tissue.
One, therefore, assumes his confession is more than paper-thin.
University officials say "all is forgiven." The toilet paper is being donated to a nearby charity because it doesn't fit the school's dispensers.
