Over 5000 Students are trapped for Failure to Meet University's Requirement for Graduation

No Joke!

This Noun graduation list 2018 seems to be the most talk-off in town with over 5, 000 post-graduate students are trapped at the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN, due to their failure to meet the university’s requirement for graduation.

According to the policy of the university, a student is required to earn a minimum cumulative grade point average, CGPA, of 3.0 and a specified total credit earned, TCE, to graduate.

The 3.0 CGPA is the equivalent of second class lower in other Nigerian universities, while the TCE is the totality of points amassed from courses the student registered for and passed in the course of the programme.

According to a group of students who have completed their programmes but earned less than the stipulated CGPA, they were not informed of the “No 3.0, No Graduation” policy at the point of their admission into the university.

In a statement they issued Monday, a group of the students called on the Minister of Education and the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission to direct NOUN to suspend the “obnoxious policy” and let them go.

“In addition to this, the institution should be made to explain why it chose to conceal the policy from students at the point of admission, only to impose it on them at the pont of graduation,” they said in the statement signed on their behalf by Tony Christian.

“While it is a common knowledge that the policy is nothing but a deliberate scheme by NOUN to up its IGR, it was however not surprising that all students affected by the policy were deliberately made to fail some courses in a bid by the institution to generate funds from payment arising from re-registration of carried-over courses.

“Yet, after writing these carried-over courses, with no outstanding and scored at least 2.5 GP, it is baffling that NOUN has refused to graduate these students on the ground that they did not meet its 3.0 GP benchmark.
