In a recent development, the University of Ilorin has announced an extension of the current academic session until Tuesday, November 14, 2023. This decision was conveyed to the student body through a letter from the Dean of Student Affairs, Prof. M. T. Yakubu, FAS.
The rationale behind this extension lies in the necessity to ensure the completion of the academic calendar and the upcoming Senate (Special) meeting, where the Good Standing Results of the Students will be deliberated upon.
This announcement comes at a crucial juncture for students, as it grants them additional time to adequately prepare for their impending examinations and finalize their coursework. It recognizes the unique challenges that the academic community has faced, especially in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Furthermore, Prof. Yakubu's letter provides reassurance to students residing in the university's hostels. It explicitly states that students will continue to have uninterrupted access to their hostel accommodations until the stipulated date of November 14, 2023.
This extension is a testament to the University of Ilorin's commitment to delivering a quality education to its students while accommodating the unforeseen disruptions caused by the pandemic. It serves as a reminder that the institution prioritizes the well-being and academic progress of its student body.
As the extended academic session unfolds, students and faculty alike can look forward to a comprehensive and robust educational experience that reflects the university's dedication to academic excellence.
