Use of Matriculation Numbers
Student records are computerized in the University Computing Centre. For this purpose, each student is assigned a matriculation number upon registration. No official student paper or document may be regarded as complete or valid unless it carries the correct matriculation number. Student are strongly advised to know, and to always be definite about their matriculation numbers, as well as use the numbers on all official transactions, including examination answer scripts and payment of fees.
Once a student has been given a matriculation number, he/she must retain it even if he/she changes his/her faculty or programme of study. All new students are formally admitted to the University at the Matriculation. At this ceremony, new students must take the Matriculation Oath and sign the register of matriculated students of the University. Nobody may claim to be a student of this University until he/she duly completed all matriculation formalities.
Each registered student of the University, upon payment of a prescribed fee, is issued an official Student Identity Card valid for one session only, or as may be indicated on the card. All persons, while on University property, may be required, for reasonable cause, to identify themselves upon request by any authorized University officials acting in the performance of their duties. Some University facilities e.g. Kenneth Dike Library, are open only to students who are able to show valid identity cards, as well as Library registration card. Students are strongly advised, therefore, to always carry their identity cards with them and to be ready to produce them, on demand.
Students must surrender their identity cards to the Records Office upon their graduation or withdrawal from the University.
Interactive sessions with student at the beginning of the session provide opportunities for students orientation activity, student socialisation and integration into the University culture and traditions.
