Registration runs smoothly

Despite the disruptions caused by the protest by some students at the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) last week, thousands of students have arrived on campus to register for the 2016 academic year.

NUST Registrar, Corneels Jafta, said that more than 9 000 new and returning students have registered on campus and online. “There does not seem to have been any disruption of the normal flow of the registration process that we experience every year,” he said. 

The protest a week ago disrupted the process by a day when the students unlawfully caused a campus lockdown. They demanded Management to review the institution’s fees. The issue was addressed on the same day and it was resolved that students may register without paying the registration fee and tuition deposit at registration. However, the students will have to settle their debts throughout the semester.

Jafta said he is pleased with the registration process that has been made to date. “We are working at a brisk pace and everything is going well. Fortunately, we have managed to catch up with the backlog two working days after the protest. We are catering for at least 1 190 students per day which include first-years and seniors. The total number of students registered is expected to increase when late registration commences next week,” he said.
