MUK VC prof Dumba Ssentamu – transcripts will be issued after verification.

By Damali Mukhaye

The vice chancellor of Makerere University prof Dumba Ssentamu has assured the former students who graduated in February that the university will not issue transcripts unless they are verified.

The students who graduated during the recent 67th graduation ceremony yesterday petitioned the office of the Vice Chancellor over the delayed issuance of transcripts giving the university an ultimatum of 7 days to issue the transcripts.

According to the petition, students claim that their absorption into the job market has become difficult while majority have missed out on scholarships to pursue further studies including masters and PHD programmes.

Speaking to KFM, Ddumba said his office will not be shaken by threats adding that transcripts will not be verified unless they are verified.

The Academic registrar Mr Namoah Masikye on the 20th of March directed the university management to withhold 14,895 transcripts for students who graduated until the institution completes cleaning up its results management system after some staff infiltrated the system and falsified some of the students’ marks.
