KAMPALA – Makerere University has on June 13 trashed allegations that it asked the 2019/2020 new entrants to print out their own admission letters.
On Wednesday June 13 2019 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.
Makerere University has defended itself on its twitter page by tweeting:
“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 an official communication from the university, via our social media pages and website.”
Makerere on Tuesday 11 June released a total of 19,700 students who were admitted to different programs on private sponsorship.
In addition to the list of government-sponsored students who have been admitted on the District Quota System was released. However, these candidates are still pending verification by their respective districts.
