Over 800 Takoradi Technical University (TTU) students who failed to register their courses before 28th January, 2020 are on the verge of deferment as they have received notifications on their portal.
The Public Relations Officer of TTU, Kow Payin Nketsia-Richardson, responding to the issue, told Citi News the students which include first years to third years simply refused to register.
“The registration period was opened from August 2019 to January 2020. Despite this long period, over 800 students have not registered. Some even paid their school fees at the Bank but still didn’t register. Management would soon be addressing the issue but the practice is not good for planning since the university even allows those awaiting student loans or made part-payment to register,” he said.
While admitting a breach of the University’s regulation that require students to register within two weeks of reopening, the SRC President of Takoradi Technical University, Solomon Asegitagwa told Citi News that the affected students numbering 904 have complained to the SRC office.
“About 904 of these affected students have come to the SRC to petition management. Though we admit it is a breach, we are appealing to the University to implement the policy slowly. Meanwhile, the SRC is working with management to resolve the issue,” he stated.
