UPSA SRC President leads campaign to get more students registered for Second Semester

UPSA SRC President Peter MwinZumah

The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) of the University of Professional Studies, Accra has launched a campaign to aid students register for the Second Semester.

Dubbed ‘SRC Aid Fees Payment System’, the campaign affords students who are unable to visit the banking hall to pay their fees due to the lockdown an opportunity to send it to a dedicated Mobile Money account for onward payment.

The idea was birthed following an online meeting between course representatives and the Vice Chancellor of the University on Thursday.

Professor Abednego Feehi Okoe Amartey used the opportunity to explain the modalities of the school’s online examination suggested for the Second Semester due to the threat posed by the coronavirus.

According to the Vice Chancellor, the online examination will be in the nature of assignments and students have 48 hours to send in their response through the virtual platform, WhatsApp, or email depending on the preference of the lecturer.

UPSA Vice Chancellor, Abednego Feehi Okoe Amartey can confirm that as at Friday, April 17, 2020, a total of over 13,000 students have paid their fees and registered for the Semester in readiness for the online examination.

At least over 2,500 students are yet to pay their fees and register for the semester, compelling the Vice Chancellor to suggest that all fees be sent to the SRC President for onward payment at the bank.

The campaign started on Friday and is monitoring developments with regards to its implementation as the Semester comes to an end on April 26, 2020.
