RE-OPENING AUCC, GRADUATION AND 2020/2021 ACADEMIC CALENDAR

The Academic Board of AUCC at its meeting on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, took the following decisions and approved the proposal below for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Resit and Supplementary Exams

 

All resit and supplementary exams for graduating and continuing students will take place on the week of November 23, 2020. Students who are required to resit and/or take some supplementary exams are admonished to register in their various schools and prepare accordingly. For the avoidance of doubt, all students who for some reasons were unable to take the last end-of-semester exams are to register for the supplementary exams. However, no student will be allowed to take the resit or supplementary exams if he/she is owing fees. 

Registration for the 2020-2021 Academic Year

Fresh and Continuing students’ registration for the 2020-2021 academic year will start from Monday, November 9, 2020 – Saturday, January 9, 2021. We entreat all fresh and continuing students to look out for the semester courses in their respective schools and register within the stipulated period.

Graduation 2020

The 2020 graduation has been scheduled for Saturday, February 20, 2021, at the campus of AUCC. Details on the graduation will be announced in due course. In the meantime, should a graduating student require some supporting documents from AUCC for official purposes, he/she should request for an attestation letter from the Academic Affairs Office.
