IMPORTANT NOTICE

DATE : 24th March 2017
 
TO :   STUDENTS ,FACULTY AND STAFF
                                                         
FROM : Lydiah Masinde, Registrar

RE: NEW POLICY ON GRADUATION CEREMONY
 
The Commission for University Education (CUE) recommends that all students must complete all degree requirements before they are eligible to participate in the graduation ceremony. In addition, the Senate must confirm that all graduating students meet the requirements and approve the graduation list. For USIU-Africa this means that only students who complete their degree requirements by Spring semester each year will be eligible.

However due to short notice and for this year 2017 only, students who complete all the degree requirements in Summer 2017 will be allowed to participate. For this reason the university Senate has approved 9th September 2017 as the graduation date and not 19th August 2017 as indicated in the academic calendar. This will allow for the processing of summer examination results and for the Senate approval.

Please take note
Degree application for August 2017 commencement will begin on 6th February 2017. Students completing course work by April and August 2017 are encouraged to apply for graduation. Deadline is April 3rd 2017.
