Prof Barnabas Nawangwe, the Makerere University Vice-Chancellor confirms that all is set for the 68th Makerere Graduation ceremony.
The oldest university will hold the 68th Graduation ceremony from 16-19 January 2018, at the university main campus.
Below are the set dates for different colleges on which graduands will be conferred degrees in different academic disciplines.

Despite Nawangwe’s confirmation, a big number of students from MUBS and the main campus are still missing on the final graduation list even after clearing all the necessary requirements.
On Tuesday students stormed the office of the Vice Chancellor demanding for an explanation why they are missing on the graduation list yet cleared the necessary requirements.
“After studying for hectic 3 years, cleared all the fees, they are now saying I cannot graduate really? How is that my fault? Gloria Birungi asked.
“I had already confirmed to my parents that I passed and they are waiting for graduation. How will I go back home and face my parents to tell them that I will not graduate,” Rashid Batambuze said
However, the Personal Assistant to the Vice Chancellor, Gordon Murangira assured students that the University would only grant them transcripts but cannot guarantee their addition on the already complete graduation book.
