The management of the University of Ghana (UG) says it will sack Level 200 and 300 students with Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) below 1.00 in the Colleges of Basic and Applied Sciences, Education and Humanities.
In a statement shared with AcademicWeek, the University said students at the said level with below 1.00 CGPA effective the 2023/2024 academic year will not have the chance to continue their education as students of the institution.
This is in accordance with Section 9.26 of the University Regulations for Junior Members (2017), which states that undergraduate students who do not achieve the stipulated minimum CGPA for progression to the next level of study should be withdrawn from the university.
“Current level 200 and level 300 students are hereby directed to review their academic performance from their online provisional transcript in their MISWeb,” the University of Ghana (UG) stated in the press release.
Students who have received examination results for all 2022/23 registered courses and obtained a CGPA below the approved minimum for their college UG said are to expect official withdrawal letters from the University via their Official UG email addresses soon.
For those who have already remitted their tuition fees for the 2023/2024 academic year, the management of the country’s premier, oldest, and largest university indicated that a refund will be processed upon request.
“We recognize the significance of this announcement and extend an invitation to any student who has questions or requires support to contact the relevant College Academic Affairs Office,” Legon University added in the statement.
