FUTMINNA’s new software produces transcripts in five minutes
FUTMINNA’s new software produces transcripts in five minutes. Graduates of the Federal University of Technology, Minna (FUTMINNA) would be able to get their academic transcripts within five minutes if they applied for them online with the new transcript software launched by the university.
The software will address the challenges of graduates having to wait for long before accessing their transcript.
Director, Information Technology Services (ITS), Prof. Adamu Mohammed, demonstrated how the new software works during its launch at the Senate building on the Main Campus of the university.
He said the software has multi-step authentication.
According to him, student copies of the transcripts can be received in a maximum of five minutes while official copies can be sent to organizations and institutions with valid email addresses within two hours.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Abdullahi Bala praised the Registrar and the Director, ITS for cooperating towards the success of the new software.
He said: “I must say I am very pleased with this development. The issue of transcript is very important because it touches on the core integrity of an institution. Any university that cannot manage its examination results or account for the results of students, then that university has a systemic problem,” he said.
Bala pointed out that transcripts are required for pursuing postgraduate studies and scholarships while reiterating that the university will respond immediately to requests for the document so that its graduates would not lose out on opportunities.
“When you begin to have a high frequency of your graduates missing opportunities as a result of the inability of the university to provide transcripts promptly, then you are telling both your students that are still with you and your products that you don’t care about them.”
He noted that the university had made tremendous progress in the processing of transcripts as presently, it takes just about five days to complete, adding that all that is required for the new system to succeed is responsiveness on the part of the staff.
The VC said that the new development will bring a lot of goodwill to the university.
“We want FUT, Minna to always be mentioned when talking about the best universities in any sphere,” said the VC.
