FUTO compulsory revalidation of students’ course registration being carried out by FUTO-ICT Centre has taken off properly. All students of the school, both new and returning are again reminded to go to the ICT Centre or the University Computer Centre (UCC) to complete the course revalidation exercise.
Any student, of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri who fails to complete the ongoing course registration revalidation exercise, within the stipulated period, would not be allowed to attend lectures or write examinations on any courses he or she didn’t register for.
A summary of the procedure for the course registration revalidation exercise is as follows:
(1) Go to your department and confirm your course registration status with your Class Adviser. This involves confirming and obtaining, from your Class Adviser, all your registered courses from the first (Harmattan) semester of your first year up to and including the current semester.
(2) Go to the ICT Centre or the University Computer Centre (UCC) and obtain the course revalidation CD containing the course registration template.
(3) Enter, offline, on the course revalidation CD, all your registered courses and required biodata. It takes less than 20 minutes to complete entries on the CD.
(4) Submit your completed course revalidation CD to the ICT Centre.
(5) Enter, online, on FUTO Edu-portal, all your registered courses for the current (2014/2015 Harmattan) semester, after paying your school fees for the current session.
For both offline and online course registration, students are strongly advised and warned to use the computers and internet facilities at the ICT Centre and the University Computer Centre (UCC), and not to patronize quark Cyber cafes and centres.
Experience shows that the latter does more harm than good, and has been largely responsible for most of the inconsistencies in the Edu-portal course registration records of many students. The student would be solely held responsible for any errors and damages resulting from patronage of any cyber cafe.
