Are you using 802.1x or macauth?

If you are sending an access-reject, you can't assign a vlan. Reject 
means "give no service". You either need to send an accept with a vlan, 
or look for a "reject vlan" feature on your switch.

If you are using 802.1x, you probably can't send an accept for an 
unknown user, because you won't be able to complete the EAP session
