The Dean of Student’s affairs prof Tony Eyang expressed how he is delighted to be part of this interactive session,which they will ensure that solutions would be proffered to this effect.
He further said that a good number of students have paid fees but haven’t registered their courses online and the VC is so worried about this,he said the maximum credit load for returning students is 24 and so students who have carryover or dropped courses should ensure that they first register for those ones dropped by them before registering new courses.
However,the management have taken a decision that there won’t be supplementary exams again on account of students failing to register their courses,so they will learn to do things at the right time.
