Gulu University is preparing for its 19th graduation ceremony, but 76 students won’t be part of it.

According to Professor George Openjuru, the University Vice Chancellor, these students haven’t met graduation requirements, mainly due to unpaid tuition fees or incomplete research work.

Out of the 1,414 students initially approved for graduation, only 1,338 have been cleared to graduate, marking a 5.4% increase from the previous ceremony.

Interestingly, male graduates outnumber females, despite the university’s higher female student population. Only 41.9% of graduating students are female, with 58.1% being male.

Three students will receive PhD degrees, including Rev. Sr. Rosalba Aciro, Mr. Godfrey Owot Moses, and Mr. Charles Nelson Okumu, all staff members of Gulu University.

The ceremony will also recognize the best undergraduate student with the Vice Chancellor Award.

After the ceremony on February 9, graduates can collect their transcripts immediately, with certificates to follow.

Dr. Jerry Bagaya, the University Academic Registrar, noted that this graduation will push the university’s total graduates past 20,000 since its establishment in 2002.

The event will be honored by the presence of the State Minister for Primary Education, Dr. Joyce Moriku Kaducu, and the University’s Chancellor, Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda.
