They reckon that Ghc 250. 00 is not justifiable by management considering the nature of the graduation and the economic bubble the pandemic has greeted the nation.

However, according to the registrar, the said fee is to make-up for graduation publications, medals, certificate holders, university souvenirs, and administrative costs.

Some of the final year students took to twitter to oppose the virtual graduation ceremony while others opted for a reduction in charges.
