Federal University of Technology, Owerri, FUTO to withdraw students with Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) less than 1.0 in order to producing quality graduates in the near future.
The Vice-Chancellor, FUTO, Prof C. C. Asiabaka has re-stated his commitment to restore and implement the original policy of withdrawal of students with Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of less than 1.0 at the end of Year 1. He noted that the renewed commitment was to bring back the spirit of hard work and competitiveness that initially characterised students trained in FUTO.
In his communication to the University Senate, Prof Asiabaka stated that the administration has put in place measures to ensure that only students that have the mental capacity to cope with the academic rigour of our great University are retained. He noted that most Heads of Department have failed to implement this policy to the letter.
He equally noted that students who have a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of less than 1.0 are still allowed to continue registration of courses without caution by the Department. He added that the restoration of a credible admission process by Management has raised the academic standard and would eventually culminate to producing quality graduates in the near future.
He equally urged Deans and Heads of Department to put in place measures that would weed out the deficient students from the system once their deficiencies are detected.
