In a bit of a FUBAR for an Institute of Technology CIT has announced they can’t do their planned March graduation ceremony.
CIT is completing a major upgrade of our Student Information Management System, and I regret to inform you that technical issues have been discovered in the new system.
These issues have had a direct impact on the processing of student records required for CIT’s graduation ceremony in March 2011, and as a result it will not be possible for CIT to process graduation applications in time.
I very much regret that CIT will have to postpone the March 2011 graduation ceremony to October 2011 in order to overcome these issues.
I would like to extend my sincere apologies to all students for this situation and I assure you the decision to postpone the ceremony was not made lightly. Affected students are being notified as a matter of priority and staff will be available to answer all queries they may have.
Students planning to use their diplomas to get jobs can apparently get by on their transcripts.
Otherwise they’ll just have to wait to October.
