The university was supposed to hold the graduation in December 2020, but following the closure of schools, the ceremony was postponed several times.
Addressing journalists at the university yesterday, the Vice Chancellor, Prof Eli Katunguka, confirmed the dates, but added that it will be conducted virtually.
Prof Katunguka said physical attendance will be restricted to post-graduate students and university officials due to Covid-19 measures.
“I, therefore, urge the deans and heads of departments to set the ball rolling to handle their respective activities to ensure a successful graduation,” Prof Katunguka said.
“Parents and students have waited for this for a long time and I thank the Senate for taking this stand. We must move now, especially as the lockdown has been lifted. I will be monitoring the progress of various committees to ensure that we achieve this target,” he added.
According to Prof Katunguka, students are supposed to clear with the relevant university departments to be eligible to graduate.
He, however, said all the clearing will be done online to avoid crowds on campus.
The closure of all institutions of learning disrupted operations.
The teacher trainees were also not able to conduct teaching and college practice to be eligible for graduating since all schools they could conduct their training were closed.
