(3) Important information
Clause 14.1 of the General Regulations Governing Full-time Undergraduate Studies stipulates that “The Degree Certificate shall be issued to a student after s/he has been conferred a degree at the Congregation. Degree Certificates for graduates with outstanding debts to the University will be withheld until the accounts are settled.”
If graduates have any outstanding items, e.g. unreturned library materials, late payment penalty, etc., please settle them with relevant offices as soon as possible.
