Uganda Christian University-UCU has extended the deadline for the registration
of continuing and new students by one week.
Registration for UCU online academic semester ended on Friday October 23. About
50 students among others who attended the zoom meeting on Friday pleaded with
the university administration to extend the registration deadline after failing
to adopt use of the university management information system- MIS to submit
Continuing students are required to submit all their A level academic
documents, National Identity Card and a bank slip indicating payment of 45
percent tuition and functional fees for verification.
Joy Mutungi an undergraduate student says she submitted her academic
credentials on the MIS system but her account has never been updated.
“Some of us submitted all what is required on time but the system
has captured nothing. It will be hurting to lock us out.” Mutungi notes.
Frank Mwesezi a postgraduate student notes that they are still
constrained by lack of funds to meet the required percentage for tuition.
“Many of our colleagues are concerned, their parents and guardians
are not in position to pay even a single coin. The university should allow them
register as they look for money to clear than letting them go for a dead year.”

lack of access to computers.
