The Executive Committee of Senate at its meeting held on 14 April 2022, resolved that symbolic and in-person graduation ceremonies will be held on 20 and 21 September 2022 for students who graduated virtually in 2020 and 2021 because of the national lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The symbolic graduation ceremonies are intended to afford those graduates the opportunity to walk the stage, be capped and take pictures.
The ceremonies are also intended to accommodate students who completed their 2021 studies after the May 2022 graduation ceremonies and could therefore not graduate in May.
The symbolic graduation ceremonies will be rolled out as follows:
a. An online survey was conducted to determine the level on interest among the 2020 and 2021 graduates.
b. More than 850 of them have shown interest.
c. The number of ceremonies will be determined and graduates will be informed about the details of their specific ceremonies.
d. Each graduate will be allowed to invite two guests.
