Makerere University has resolved that all continuing students will sit for their exams despite pending tuition balances.

The decision was reached at a time when the University is using the Academic Management Information System (ACMIS) whereby students’ information is being transferred to this new system. Students are unfortunately not able to generate the payment references to the banks.

Students will next week start their exams via electronic platform where students will be required to log on the system and write their exams.

In the letter from the Evarist Bainomugisha, the University Bursar, granted students an opportunity to do exams as the Directorate of Information Computer and Technology system (DICTS) will update students when their accounts will be activated.

“The Senate and University Management agreed that continuing students should proceed and sit for their forthcoming exams. The payment of tuition and registration will be made after the ACMIS students portals have been activated,” he said.

However, the letter emphasized that students’ results will only be accessed after students have fully registered and cleared tuition balances.

The University is set to kick off examinations on 13th September up to 30th September. All first year and continuing students with pending exams have been encouraged to prepare enough for them.
