AMNESTY FOR STUDENTS WITH EXPIRED STUDENTSHIP STATUS IN TECHNICAL
UNIVERSITIES IN GHANA
The Board of the Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET) at its last meeting approved amnesty for students in all the tertiary institutions (including the ten
technical universities) that were affiliated with the erstwhile National Board for Professional and
Technician Examinations (NABPTEX) offering Diploma and Higher National Diploma
programmes but have not been able to graduate due to various reasons.
We therefore announce that, we are granting amnesty to give opportunity to the affected students who were supposed to have completed their courses of study at the various tertiary institutions affiliated with the Commission from 2000/2001 academic year to date.
We are encouraging these students per this amnesty to go back to their respective institutions and
complete their programmes of study towards graduation and certification.
This exercise will cover a period of three (3) years, starting from 2022/2023 academic year to 2024/2025 academic year. We therefore entreat all affected students to contact their various institutions for the detailed implementation modalities
Again, the Commission wishes to state that, the Board also approved with effect from the 2022/2023 academic year students who gain admission to offer Diploma and Higher National
Diploma at the various tertiary institutions affiliated with CTVET would have eight (8) years to satisfy all certification requirements, including the period for regular studies.
