At least 100 students of Kyambogo University have been barred from sitting end of semester examinations over failure to pay tuition fees.

Kyambogo students started end of semester examinations on January 06 and will finish in the last at the end of the month. Registration for the semester also ended on January 06.

Kyambogo University Spokesperson Lawrence Madete said some of the students had not paid a single coin.

 “Some of these students were given money for fees by their parents but have misappropriated it. We can only ask them skip the examinations,” said Madete.

In a statement issued to Kyambogo students on January 10 2014, Rose Bwire, the institution’s Academic Registrar said, “They (students) will have to pay and register for the missed exams after getting to the end of the final years of any study programme they offer,” stated Bwire.

 Sources at the university have told New Vision that those students who did not attend lecturers could face tough disciplinary actions including being discontinued from the university.

Kyambogo only allows students to register and sit for exams when they have cleared all their functional and tuition fees to the university. However, the automatic online system closed on Monday January 06, barring scores of students from registering for the semester.
