Mandeville, Jamaica- Vice-President of Academic Administration in the United Student Movement (USM), Marleen Campbell is reassuring students that the promised changes in credit allotment will reflect momentarily on the university’s aeorion platform.

Campbell told the Hilltop Trumpet on Monday, August 10, 2020, that she was informed by the Northern Caribbean University’s (NCU) Associate Vice-President of Academic Administration, Dr Charlene Sharpe, that final approvals are being made by the university’s board.

“After this process is completed the system will be updated accordingly and UNISS will be working to ensure that this is done, possibly before school reopens when everything is finalized,” she shared.

The statement was issued by Campbell in a bid to address several concerns from students who expressed that they were not yet seeing the changes via the university’s online registration portal.

During a recent series of virtual town hall meetings, the institution’s academic administration confirmed that students with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 and above will now be able to petition to complete 21 credits, while students with a GPA of 3.0 to 3.49 will now be able to complete up to 18 credits.
