GIJ Riots: No shut down, exams continue today – Management

The Ghana Institute of Journalism proceeds with its end of semester exams today, December 3, 2018, according to management of the school.

GIJ was shut down temporarily after students demonstrated over a policy demanding full payment of school fees and a ‘complicated’ online registration before they will be given access to examination halls following disturbances from undergraduate students.

However in a statement signed by the Head of Public affairs Nana Akua Agyemang-Badu said, students who have registered and paid their fees are entitled to take part in today’s exams.

“Students who have paid their fees and registered are eligible to take part in exams. These include students who faced challenges with registration online and were assisted by the Academic Affairs Department to register. However, Management is still eager to consider any students who paid the required fees by the November 21st deadline and have been unable to register online for any reason.

”Like in most universities, students are required to pay fees and register at the beginning of the semester to be able to participate in lectures and examinations. This academic year, Management offered students the opportunity to settle their fees by extending the period several times: from the end of September to October, and finally to November 21, 2018”.
