With effect for the 2023–2024 academic year, the University of Ghana (UG) will exclude students from its colleges of basic and applied sciences, education, and humanities who have cumulative grade point averages (CGPAs) below 1.00.
This is in line with Section 9.26 of the University Regulations for Junior Members (2017), which specifies that undergraduate students should withdraw from the university if they do not obtain the required minimum CGPA for progression to the next level of study.
Current level 200 and level 300 students who have received exam results for all 2022–2023 registered courses and achieved a CGPA below the minimum required for their college should anticipate official withdrawal letters from the university via their official UG email addresses soon, according to a notice from the Academic Affairs Directorate of the UG.
Those who have already paid their tuition for the academic year 2023–2024 will receive a refund upon request.
The message further noted that the UG acknowledged the importance of this disclosure and extended an invitation to any student who needed assistance or had questions to get in touch with the appropriate College Academic Affairs Office.
In due order, a special notice will be released for the College of Health Sciences.
Many students, especially those who are having academic difficulties, were taken by surprise by this announcement.
