GOVERNMENT funded students studying at the University of the South Pacific Solomon Islands (USP SI) Campus has commended the government for settling their tuition arrears.
This follows the lifting of their holds which denied them from viewing their semester one grades and registration for semester 2.
“Thank you SIG for clearing our holds,” the students said.
A student said that since the start of the registration week, they were unable to view their grades which resulted in being denied registration.
“But now we can register and view our grades,” he said.
A notice last Tuesday to the government sponsored students by the USP SI student association said, “All SIG sponsored students holds have been lifted as informed by the director of NTU this afternoon (12/07/2016).
“SIG sponsored students can now register for their courses this semester by tomorrow (Wednesday/12/07/16) onwards.
“Please take note that holds release will be done on a one-by-one student basis so be patient if your hold is still not released, however by Wednesday afternoon every holds should be cleared,” the notice to students said.
Yesterday, several students confirmed the government had already sorted the issue.
“It was a relief. We are happy the government promptly dealt with the issue.”
