ISLAMABAD, Nov 8(APP): Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU)
has introduced an online tracking system for facilitation of
students to check status of their degrees and certificates.
This is the part of the University efforts to expedite
the process of issuing provisional certificates and degrees to
the students.
The status of the applications submitted by the students for
provisional result cards and degrees could now be checked through
the newly installed website (dts.aiou.edu.pk), said a University
senior official.
The applications received from the students are immediately
acknowledged through the text message and Email given by the
students.
The new IT-based mechanism was developed in order to minimize
the coordination and communication gap among the applicants and
the Examination Department.
In the past, the objections raised by the department on the
students applications were only communicated through post, but
there was no online tracking of those objections.
According to the official, the new system is time and cost
effective, expediting the whole process of issuing PCs and
degrees to the students.
The AIOU has recently introduced a number of initiatives
to bring about qualitative improvement in the entire admission,
examination and delivery system, under the policy-guideline given
by the Vice Chancellor Dr. Shahid Siddiqui, he added.
