The Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo, on Thursday said it would matriculate no fewer than 2,000 students on February 11for the 2014/2015 academic session.
The Dean, Students Affairs of LASU, Prof. Kabir Akinyemi, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that arrangements had been put in place for a successful event.
“Although we are still compiling the total number of students that will be matriculated, it cannot be less than 2000 students,’’ Akinyemi said.
Also, the institution’s bulletin given to NAN indicated that the matriculation lecture for the freshmen, parents and guardians would hold before the February 11 event.
It said the university authorities expected all the newly-admitted students offered provisional admission and cleared during screening to have paid their school fees before February 4.
The bulletin also directed the fresh students to collect their matriculation gowns at their various faculties by 7.30 a.m. on February 4, on the payment of a fee of N2, 500.
“The gown should be returned to the point of collection the same day by 2 p.m. as failure to do so will attract penalty,’’ the bulletin said.
