The University of the Southern Caribbean (USC) has taken a decision to hold a Conferral Ceremony and cancel its previously scheduled Virtual Graduation Ceremony.  

The decision followed recent public protest of some members of the 2020 graduating class.

The Conferral Ceremony will take place on October 9.

Diplomas will be distributed to all students who have satisfied the requirements for graduation without charge, from October 12. 

USC said students who have made graduation fees payments can contact the Student Finance Office for their refund. 

Students from the 2020 graduating class who wish to participate in the next graduation ceremony can contact the registrar’s office to register their interest before the end of this semester.

USC said it looks forward to celebrating the occasion of their students’ achievements with three days of consecration, celebration and thanksgiving.

On the issue of COVID-19, USC said it has had a significant impact on the tertiary education industry, but the university will be guided by research it commissioned, which will direct its virus response.
