To do this, the ceremony begins with a procession and includes the formal presentation of matriculating students by the Dean of each school.
The matriculation oath is then administered on all the students. In the oath, the students are bound to the rules and regulations of the institution. The ceremony is a strictly formal and internal affair of the institution.
The graduation ceremony is the means by which the institution puts a seal of endorsement on every successful student exiting the institution after years of rigorous academic and intellectual labour. The ceremony signals the successful completion of the graduands’ academic pursuit within the institution.
