Uganda Christian University extends semester registration by a week
On Friday, a number of Uganda Christian University students attended a Zoom meeting with the administration and begged to have the online semester registration deadline extended to Friday 30th October instead of 23rd October as earlier communicated.
The latest information on our news desk indicates that the administration has extended the deadline for the registration of continuing and new students by one week.
This is because the majority of the students failed to use the university management information system (MIS) especially while trying to submit their registration requirements.
The continuing students are required to submit all their A level academic documents, National Identity Card, and a bank slip indicating payment of 45% tuition and functional fees for verification.
An undergraduate student who preferred anonymity also disclosed that she submitted her academic credentials on the MIS system but her account has never been updated. “Some of us submitted all that is required on time but the system has captured nothing. It will be hurting to lock us out.” The student revealed.
However, some of the students are still struggling with financial hardships to pay the required 45% tuition while other students are struggling to register due to poor internet connectivity and lack of access to computers and other gadgets.
The Mukono-based University management represented by Christa Oluka, the Director in-charge of Admission and Students Records, says reviews for registration are made to ensure that students who had already prepared their credentials in time but failed to submit them online are not left out.
