The University will only issue them the official admission letter after they have cleared their all the dues that include tuition and functional fees.
According to Mr. Charles Ssentongo the University’s Deputy Registrar in-Charge of admission, says that this move will help the academic institution to cut on printing costs.
“Students will print their provisional admission letters next week. They will use this to find out the requirements and after paying their tuition, that is when we will provide them with the official admission letters,” Mr. Ssentongo revealed.
