Students admitted into the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology this year will be matriculated via an online ceremony.
The decision to hold a virtual ceremony is a result of the increasing cases of Covid-19 in the country.
The ceremony has been scheduled for Tuesday, February 9, 2021.
KNUST is not the only tertiary institution that has resolved to hold a virtual matriculation ceremony.
Earlier last week, the University of Ghana announced plans to matriculate newly admitted students online.
