The President of the PUCG, Reverend Professor Emmanuel Obeng, who announced this at the 14th matriculation of the school at Agogo in the Ashanti Region, indicated that the prescription of the dress code simply required that both staff and students of the university dress professionally to exhibit discipline and integrity.
Detailing the dress code, he stated that the men are to avoid baggy trousers; extreme and wild haircuts, flip-flops, piercing and tattooing visible parts of the body, striking jewelry, untrimmed beard and moustache to lectures or official functions.
The ladies, are equally required to avoid provocative dressing that reveal too much cleavage; wearing too much jewelry; extreme and wild hairstyles, loud lipstick and nail polish, piercing and tattooing of visible parts of the body and use of flip-flops among others.
He noted that the move among others was to inculcate disciplined dress culture in the students in particular to ensure efficiency, effectiveness and decency among them.
Prof Obeng said: “That way students will not waste the money of parents on unnecessary things”.
He announced that students who indulge in examination malpractices would be dismissed, notwithstanding the magnitude of the offence to maintain the PUCG’s credibility and integrity.
He observed that occurrences in the past have attracted punishment of rustication of students and cancellation of papers.
“I wish to serve notice once again that from this academic year, any examination malpractice, no matter its magnitude will attract the punishment of dismissal.”
On rules of progression, Prof Obeng said a student shall repeat a year if he/she fails more than three courses or has a CGPA less than one, at the end of the second semester, after resit examinations. .
He advised the matriculants to attend lectures punctually and actively participate in classes and also cultivate the habit of utilising available university resources of library, chaplaincy and the Life Values Promotion Centre.
