In June, news circulated on various media platforms indicating that the University had asked the new entrants to print out their provisional admission letters.
The reports also stated that the academic institution was to hand the fresh students their official admission letters upon completing the tuition dues.
This was claimed to have been aimed at reducing the costs incurred in the printing process by the University.

“We have not issued any official communication regarding the issuance or printing of admission letters. We encourage newly admitted students to keep calm as they wait for official communication from the university, via our social media pages and website.”
Finally, they have posted on their official twitter handle calling upon students to pick their admissions.
Fees Structures have also been compiled by the Academic Registrar’s Department and University Finance Department and delivered to the respective Colleges/Schools and Up-Country Centers.
