STUDENTS enrolling at the Solomon Islands National University (SINU) were being reminded that there will be no late registration this semester, 2020 for students wanting to do their studies with the University.
According to the University’s Senior Marketing and Promotions Officer, Estee Baffet Lonamei, the decision to leave out the late registration period was due to the low turnout of students in the past two weeks prompting the University to extend the enrollment process one more week.
“The late registration week is this week but due to the low turnout of students experiences over the past two weeks, we have decided to extend the enrollment one more week so that that it won’t attract the late registration fee,” Mr. Lonamei expressed.
While it is good news that no late registration fee will be collected, students are also advised that since there will be no late registration this semester, the registration and enrollment process will end exactly on the 7th of February 2020.
The SINU’s Marketing and Promotions Officer, however, admitted that already the decision to strike-out the late registration period has affected the National University’s academic calendar.
“Classes and lectures for all schools should have started this week, but since we are changing the late registration week to a normal registration week, there will be no late registration for this semester,” Mr. Lonamei explained.
Mr. Lonamei also reveals that the registrations and enrollment period have also continued over the weekend on Saturdays and Sundays.
The SINU”s Marketing and Promotions Officer in the meantime encouraged students to make good use of the opportunity to study at the National University stating that SINU accepts every single candidate wishing to study with them, those who already have a space and those who have applied but was not listed in the Final accepted students list.
He encouraged them to seek counseling from lecturers and they will be given a space at the university.
