Makerere University announces plans to ease access to academic documents



Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof Barnabas Nawangwe yesterday announced plans to ease access to academic documents, including the transcripts and certificates.

Speaking during the first day of the week-long 73rd graduation ceremony which kicked off yesterday, Prof Nawangwe said the university has come up with measures aimed at making graduates access their documents fast and conveniently. He added that the university has shortened the red tape, which included knocking at 10 offices before getting the documents.

“We have reviewed this and one is now required to clear with only two offices namely Makerere University Library and the Office of the University Bursar,” Prof Nawangwe said. Since students were required to get clearance from halls of residence, university hospital, dean of students, guild offices, sports offices, university bursar, and college or schools’ bursar, among others.

Prof Nawangwe said this year’s graduates would not walk away with their much prized certificates, just like those of the last two editions. Those of the 70th ceremony went home with their papers.

“We apologise that we are unable to issue the transcripts immediately after graduation due to unforeseen challenges with the importation of blanks for transcripts. However, we are making every effort to issue the transcripts after one month,” he said.

The graduation ceremony is slated to run upto Thursday this week.

Congratulations to the graduands
