Jagannath University Registrar Engineer Md Ohiduzzaman issued a notice in this regard on Thursday

Jagannath University (JnU) authorities have stopped further admission of students to its evening courses after the University Grants Commission (UGC) issued a 13-point guideline, including closure of evening courses in the educational institutions.

Jagannath University Registrar Engineer Md Ohiduzzaman issued a notice in this regard on Thursday.

According to the notice, no new students will be able to get admitted to the evening courses offered by the university until further directives.

However, those who are currently studying in the respective evening programs will be allowed to complete their courses, it said.

Jagannath University Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Mijanur Rahman also told Bangla Tribune: “We are not taking new students in the existing evening courses. 

“Although, those who have already [before the issuance of the university directive] got admitted to these programs will be permitted to complete their studies.”

Among the public universities, Jagannath University has come up with such decision just a day after the UGC on Wednesday sent a letter to all the public universities asking those to stop evening courses. 

The commission also issued a 13-point guideline for the public universities.

In the guideline, the UGC requested the public universities to shut evening courses as the courses undermine the character of a public university and tarnish its image.

The UGC guideline came just two days after President Md Abdul Hamid on Monday came down heavily on the evening courses in public universities.
