By Izunna Okafor
The Management of Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo has announced a new policy that guarantees 50 per cent refund of school fees to students with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 4.50 in every session.
The Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, disclosed this during the matriculation ceremony of the 2020/2021 students, which saw the matriculation of a total of 6,648 students into the various academic programmes of the institution.
According to her, the new policy is aimed at promoting healthy competition among the students who consistently maintain average of the CGPA.
She further revealed that LASU had, over the years, remained on the path of academic excellence and distinguished itself in the comity of universities in the country.
She said, “We are committed to excellence and determined to emerge as the best university in the West Africa region.
“Our students’ welfare is top on our priorities as we will ensure that the learning environment remains conducive for learning.
“My dear matriculating students, please note that the distance between matriculation and convocation ceremonies is quite wide and yet so close, it is important that the journey ends successfully.’’
The LASU helmsman, Olatunji-Bello, also advised the matriculating students to be regular in their attendance to lectures, carry out all assignments, shun deviant behaviours and avoid indecent dressing, among others.
“The university has zero tolerance for cultism, examination malpractices, corruption and hooliganism.
“Those found culpable will be dealt with in line with their disciplinary mechanisms,” she said.
Speaking at the event, the Acting Dean, Students Affairs Division, Dr Tajudeen Olumoko, said that the cardinal objective of the exercise was to acquaint the students with the fundamental principles, norms and culture of the institution.
Olumoko added that it was expected they abide by all rules and regulations of the University throughout their study years.
