The accreditation scandal that nearly halted the Walter Sisulu University graduation has been overlooked.
In a letter to the WSU community, university registrar Dr Lulamile Ntonzima said: “As previously communicated by my office and that of vice-chancellor, the university made submissions to the CHE regarding the status of five programmes offered by WSU.”
Ntonzima said the winter graduation would take place from May 30 to June 10.
“WSU appreciates your [university community’s] patience and perseverance during this difficult period.
“We understand that this has been a difficult time for parents, students, graduates and the WSU community,” Ntonzima said.
The programmes in question were the advanced diploma in internal auditing, advanced diploma in journalism, master of medicine in gynaecology and obstetrics, bachelor of science in zoology, and postgraduate diploma in chemical pathology.
Student protests also resulted in the postponement of the winter graduation which was set for May 9 to 20.
The university established an accreditation task team which submitted the documentation to the CHE.
