The Academic Registrar (AR) and Directorate for ICT Support (DICTS) team went to the Makerere University Jinja Campus on Friday the 11th of March 2022. The trip was aimed at supporting the Academic and administrative staff on their ICT usage on the new Academic Management Information System (ACMIS)

AR has been implementing the system with support from DICTS for the past 6-7 months. Training of both registrars and academic staff in all the colleges has been conducted and continuous support continues to take place.

College registrars have been trained on how to support students on the system by doing their cardinal roles of ensuring the curriculum for the various programs are set and right, academic staff have been and continue to be trained on how to use the system for various purposes including uploading results, etc. Students too have been trained on how to activate their portals, register, generate payment reference numbers, etc. on the system.
