The attention of the Njala University Registry has been drawn to allegations on social media by students claiming to have graduated from the University in 2019.
This set of students has alleged that they had been deprived of their University Certificates even when they had met all their financial obligations to the University. This according to them has deprived them of getting jobs, scholarships, and other benefits.
The Registry wants to make the following clarifications on the issue for the attention of the General Public as follows:
✔️ Students who have completed their programs and had their results published should register for graduation and had their degrees conferred on them by the Chancellor of the University.
✔️ Graduands who had fulfilled the above, are expected to sign a specimen at the University Registry. This is to ensure that their details are correctly stated on their certificates.
✔️ The University Registry provides for the issuance of certificates on an emergency basis at no extra cost. However, applicants requesting these services are expected to give a week’s notification to the Registry.
✔️ Holders of the Sierra Leone Grant In-Aid have the obligation to honor all financial obligations to the University as they pertain to Graduation.
We want to register our dissatisfaction that the allegations on social media are untrue, and we encourage our students to their financial obligations and follow the other procedures leading to the issuance of their certificates.
