The Ghana Institute of Journalism has resicinded its earlier directive to students who failed to pay their fees on time to defer.

In a statement from the university, all the students who made late payment of fees will not be allowed to write their end of semester exam which has been postponed for a week as a result of the new decision.

“Management of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) has magnanimously granted all students who failed to register for the first semester of the 2020/2021 Academic Year an opportunity to register and write their end of semester exams instead of deferring their programmes,” the statement said.

“Management took this decision today, Wednesday 25 March 2021, based on a petition received from student leaders yesterday and the engagement with the said students who rendered an unqualified apology on behalf of demonstrating students who had issued threats, untruths and insults against Management,” the statement added.

The university has granted a general amnesty to all students to complete their registration.

“Affected students should immediately produce their receipts at the Academic Affairs registry to complete registration processes,” the statement added.

This opportunity to register shall expire in five (5) working days from today, on Thursday, 1 April 2021. Any other student who has a special case should contact the Registrar’s office to avail themselves of any opportunities available for students with exceptional circumstances or difficulties. Accordingly, examinations scheduled to start on Monday, 29 March 2021, are rescheduled to Tuesday, 6 April 2021. The Academic Affairs registry shall release a new examination timetable in due course,” it added.
