(Jamaica Gleaner) The University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona, has issued an advisory to students warning that they will not be allowed to sit their final exams this semester, unless they have cleared their tuition balances.
The University has implemented a new system this year, to ensure that students sitting exams are in good financial standing. According to the UWI, students will be required to take to each exam a copy of their examination card issued by email by the University Registrar.
It said where the cards indicate that students have not registered for the courses or if they are in arrears, they will be barred from sitting the exams.
Recently, a group of students protested at the Mona campus of the UWI, claiming that they were being unfairly treated because they were in arrears.
