When the University operations resume, students will be expected to sit for the January – April 2019/2020 Semester / Trimester examinations.
- That Open, Distance and Electronic Learning (ODEL) and Distance, Institution-Based and Electronic Learning (DIBEL) students will continue with their learning uninterrupted.
