UPSA sacks 22 students over grade manipulation

Twenty-two students of the University of Professional Studies (UPS) have been dismissed for undermining the university’s student information system in order to “manipulate various grades in their favour.”

The decision to sack the students, the University said,  was reached at an emergency meeting by its academic board Wednesday February 15 2017.

“The Academic Board took a serious view of this conduct considering the potential it has to damage the credibility of the University and therefore further resolved that seven of the dismissed students who refused to cooperate with the investigation process should have their photographs published alongside their names to serve as a deterrence,” the dismissal notice sighted by StarrFMonline.com read in part.

Below is the Notice of dismissal
