70 UCC Final Year Distance Education Students Sacked From Exams Hall Over Fees


About 70 final year Distance Education students of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) at Atefuah Senior High School Campus in Akyem Oda are frustrated over their sacking from the examination hall for owing varied amounts of school fees.

Some of the affected students owe as little as GHC200 but they were prevented from writing the exams.

The aggrieved students say the decision by the management of the university will have dire implications on their GPA and if not given the opportunity to write again, they may not graduate.

“We will just complete tomorrow so we have our last papers today and tomorrow so we complete the 3-year course. They didn’t set a limit for us like maybe if you are owing GH¢500 you cannot write. Some of us are owing GH¢40 others are owing GH¢250, GH¢300 and others are owing GH¢3000 but they have sacked all of us from the exams hall. We are about 70”.

He added: “the implication is that we can’t graduate unless maybe they consider us to write the Papers and even that we are going to write I/C and if we are going to write I/C unless a year later. There is anger here and some of the students are using foul languages on the lecturers”.
