To comply with current COVID-19 protocols, the University management in consultation with the Chancellor, agreed to take the following measures which will be implemented during the graduation. They are:
- Only graduands will be allowed into the main graduation arena to comply with social distancing guidelines. All parents, guardians, and the public will not be allowed into the main arena but can watch from the peripherals of the arena fence.
- The University will broadcast live its graduation ceremony on its Facebook page. Those with smart phones can watch from anywhere within the country and abroad.
- Live video feed of the graduation will also be shown at the Duncanson Hall and will have video screens set up around the graduation arena for the public to watch the graduation proceedings.
- The number of formally invited dignitaries, sponsors including government representatives have been reduced to minimize the number of persons in the main graduation area. The University sincerely apologies to those who sponsors that have not received any formal invitation from the University.
The University Administration sincerely asks those attending the graduation to adhere to these measures undertaken to avoid any inconveniences
