Commencement of 2020/2021 Classes for First Year Students

Classes for 2020/2021 undergraduate First Year Students will not commence on August 24, 2020 as scheduled. The delay to commence classes for First Year Students is due to processing of sponsorship letters by the Department of Tertiary Education Financing (DTEF) hence issuing of such letters will only start on September 1, 2020.
The 2020/2021 Government Sponsorship application process could not be done on time after it was suspended following disruptions occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, teaching and learning for all other continuing students will proceed as planned.
Any new developments will be communicated as and when they occur.
