All students are to note the following:

Rapid Diagnostic Test

As a result of the premium the University places on the wellness and wellbeing of our students while on campus, returning students will be required to undergo Rapid Diagnostic Test at no cost to students and parents, but at a cost to the University. This test shall be conducted for all returning students at the University’s old Ceremonial Ground on resumption. The result of the test takes about 20 minutes to be out. If the result of the student is okay, the student proceeds straight to the hall of residence. Any student with positive result from antibody testing will go through standard COVID- 19 screening (PCR) at the University’s medical facility. Meanwhile, the student will be isolated in the designated halls (Bethel Splendour for males and Ogden for females) pending the outcome of the PCR testing. The cost of the PCR testing will be borne by the student.

COVID-19 Screening

All fresh students will undergo screening for COVID-19 at the University’s old Ceremonial Ground. The cost, which is twenty-five thousand naira, will be borne by the individual fresh student. After undergoing the screening exercise, students will be conveyed to designated halls of residence. Two students will be accommodated in a room each pending the outcome of the screening for each student. The result of the screening will be out in 48 hours. All students with negative results will thereafter be allocated rooms in the halls of residence they had paid for prior to resumption. Those who test positive (we pray there will be none by the grace of God) will be taken to the University’s isolation centre for treatment in line with established COVID-19 protocols until their subsequent tests show negative twice consecutively. They will then be conveyed into their halls of residence.

NOTE ALSO THAT:

All fresh and returning students are required to:

  • Come with their COVID-19 safety kits (face mask and alcohol-based hand sanitizer) on resumption. Students who can afford it may come with their infrared thermometer.
  • Only students with proof of payment of school fees, or sufficient balance in their student accounts will be allowed on campus.
  • While on campus, students are required to adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols as approved by the Federal Ministry of Health.
  • The full information of the University’s academic calendar is on our official website www.babcock.edu.ng
