Students Union & Other Information

STUDENTS' UNION

There is a Students' Union to which students can belong. The union has as its major aims, to profess, project and protect the interests of its members both within and outside the college compound. It has two major organs, namely the Executive Council and Students Representative Council, which is the Legislative arm.

The union has a constitution which acts as the rules and regulations guiding its operations, and interested students could get copies of the constitution from their student leaders, so long as student unionism is active on campus. Membership of the union is currently voluntary and not compulsory for every student.

It should be noted that the student's union operates within the bounds of the College law/rules and regulations and such other state and national laws as may be promulgated from time to time. The Student Affairs Office headed by the Dean of Students is the supervising office of the Students' Union.

THE STUDENT WELFARE AND DISCIPLINARY COMMITTEE

There is a Student Welfare and Disciplinary Committee whose membership is made up of staff and students. It formulates major policy guidelines on student welfare for implementation by the college. It is also in charge of all matters involving student discipline in the college and the supervision of college clubs and associations.

GENERAL ADVICE ON STUDENT WELFARE

It is advised that students who have problems relating to their welfare should not hesitate to bring up same to the Student Affairs Office, other offices/officers and even their colleagues, for possible assistance.

STUDENT CONDUCT/DISCIPLINE

The college believes in producing graduands who are worthy, both in learning and character. To this extent, it encourages the virtues of civilized public living and co-existence amongst her students and staff. Such vices as stealing, affray or fighting, vulgarism, examination malpractices forgery etc., are prohibited by the college, poor conduct on the part of students could therefore attract penalties of varying degrees depending on the gravity of the established offences.

There is a Student Welfare and Disciplinary Committee, composed of staff and students who handle such cases of discipline/indiscipline of students.

STUDENT IDENTIFICATION AND IDENTITY CARDS Students are generally identified by the Student Affairs Office, which is also the centre point where student identity cards are prepared. However, it is not out of place to have other designated offices identifying students as the case maybe. It is compulsory for every student to possess an identity card as it is required from time to time within and outside the campus.

STAFF-STUDENTS RELATIONSHIP

The college realises that its goal here is human processing (training). To that extent, staff and students could be in constant interaction with each other, such interactions are expected to be rewarding to the parties concerned, especially in terms of teaching -learning. The committee which staff and students belong as members provide formal avenues to promote such staff-student relationship. Staff and student could inter-relate but not to the detriment of the interest of the college the parties concerned.

CHANNELS OF COMMUNICATION

The channel of information flow is two-way. It could be from college authorities to students or the other way round. Information to students is generally communicated through the Student Affairs Office, Academic Office, the various schools and department. In order to be continuously aware of college activities, students are advised to cultivate the habit of watching out for information always (Particularly on the college notice boards).

They could always check the various notice boards or other venues through which information is disseminated to students. Students are also advised to constantly interact with their colleagues to know the latest information and comply accordingly, as the college abhors lateness of compliance with directives and instruction. Ignorance is no excuse for default.

Any student wishing to communicate with offices/officer in the College could do so directly. However, correspondence on student Affairs should be addressed to, or routed through the Dean of Student Affairs. All correspondences should bear the subject combination or department, and their matriculation number of the students concerned, for ease and speed of official action.

REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT OF FEES

All students whether old or fresh are expected to pay the prescribed fees for the year. Only bank draft from Union Bank, UBA, First Bank and New Nigeria Bank are acceptable to the College for now. Students are therefore, expected to pay their fees in drafts to these banks. Students are informed that school fees defaulters are not entitled to the rights and benefits as other students who have met the fee requirements. For instances, they cannot receive lectures nor write examinations in the college.

STUDENT CLUBS AND ASSOCIATION

There are a number of students clubs and associations whose aims and objectives make them academic, social and informative, but generally form a basis for rewarding interaction and recreation among students. Some of these student organizations are the CEDA Club, the Press Club, the Literary and Dramatic Society, the Palm Wine Drunkard Club, the English Students' Association, the Social Studies Students' Association and the Students Cultural groups such as the Ika Students Association, the Federation of Ndokwa Students, the Aniocha/Oshimili Students Association. Among the religious organizations are Nigeria Federation of Catholic Students (NFCS), and Nigeria Fellowship of Evangelical Students (NIFES). The different students bodies are expected to operate in such away as not to negate the basic interest of the college.

The clubs and associations must be approved by the college through the recommendation of the Students Welfare and Disciplinary Committee. The approved clubs and associations must register with the college and renew their registration annually.

CHANGE OF NAMES

The college discourages change of name by students. This is to forestall any act of possible abuse.

However, changes resulting form proven cases of marriage by female students may be entertained. Any change of policy shall be communicated.
