In a letter dated 2nd august 2021, the vice chancellor of Kyambogo university prof Elly Katunguka has officially revealed the dates on which the university will hold its17th graduation ceremony.
‘’Senate at its meeting held on Friday 30th July 2021, decided to hold the 17th graduation from 21st-23rd September 2021. It will be virtual with limited physical presence,’’ the letter reads in part.
‘’Parents and students have waited for this for a long time and I thank senate for taking this stand. We must move now especially as the lockdown has been lifted. I will be monitoring the progress of various committee to ensure that we achieve this target. Be lifted as you work,’’ Prof Katunguka said.
Prof Katunguka urged the DVC AA, Deans and heads of departments, academic registrar, ceremonies committee, university secretary and procurement committee to set the ball rolling to handle their respective activities to ensure a successful graduation ceremony.
For a period of over two years, Kyambogo university former finalists have been uncertain about the dates of their graduation ceremony due to the outbreak of COVID-19 which disrupted the initial graduation dates.
However, the students are rushing to open their portals but they are not working with the Aims app not operational for some students. Worse still, some departments like Sociology, social sciences have not yet put student marks on their portals yet the graduation is coming closer. It is being speculated that the portals were closed after many students hacked into the system to change their marks and retakes.
