The University of Ghana has announced new progression and withdrawal procedures for undergraduate students in the College of Basic and Applied Sciences, College of Education, and College of Humanities. The new procedures are effective for the 2023/2024 academic year.
Under the new procedures, undergraduate students who do not achieve the stipulated minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) for progression to the next level of study will be withdrawn from the university. The minimum CGPA prescribed for the above-listed Colleges is 1.00.
Students who have received examination results for all 2022/2023 registered courses and obtained a CGPA below the approved minimum for their college should expect official withdrawal letters from the University via their Official UG email addresses soon. For those who have already remitted their tuition fees for the 2023/2024 academic year, please be assured that a refund will be processed upon request.
The University recognizes the significance of this announcement and extends an invitation to any student who has questions or requires support to contact the relevant College Academic Affairs Office.
This announcement is a significant change in the University’s progression and withdrawal procedures. Previously, students were allowed to repeat courses in order to improve their CGPA and progress to the next level of study. However, the new procedures will require students to achieve the minimum CGPA in their first attempt.
The University has not provided any specific reasons for the change in procedures. However, it is likely that the University is trying to improve its academic standards and to ensure that students are graduating with the necessary skills and knowledge.
The new procedures are likely to have a significant impact on undergraduate students in the affected Colleges. Students will need to be more careful about their course selection and to work hard to achieve the minimum CGPA in order to progress to the next level of study.
Students who are at risk of being withdrawn from the University should contact the relevant College Academic Affairs Office for support. There are a number of resources available to help students improve their academic performance, such as tutoring, academic advising, and student support services.
