The University of Ghana has extended the deadline for academic registration of the second semester of the 2018/2019 academic year from 11th February to 15th February to allow students a final window to to complete the exercise.
This was confirmed to Univers News by the President of the University of Ghana Student Representative Council (UGSRC), Sylvester Owusu Amoako who maintained that his outfit had to advocate for an extension in date for the close of the registration due to the numerous complaints received from students.
‘I received several calls from students who complained about their inability to raise funds for the remainder of their school fees.
Most of the concerns were for an extension in the deadline to allow them to be able to pay their fees in order to avoid deferment. I encourage all students to take advantage of the extension because there won’t be any further extensions’, he said.
While most concerns come on the back of financial constraints, there are other genuine cases which have popped up because of the challenges students faced when the portal for the academic registration was opened to kick-start the second half of the academic year.
At the time, some students were unable to undertake their mandatory online academic registration; a situation which has triggered the move by the SRC to engage management on extending the deadline.
Meanwhile, the SRC through a communique has been calling on students to take advantage of the extension to fulfill their academic registration since there will be no further extension.
Below is the release from the SRC President
