The Opening Convocation event, usually referred to in Cameroon as “Matriculation,”
“Saint Monica University has set out to positively distinguish itself from all other universities in Cameroon,” said Professor Bongasu Tanla-Kishani, President of SMU. “We’re committed to providing our students with an education that will not only transform their lives, but also transform society. To this effect, SMU has embraced the liberal education philosophy, which presents a curriculum that is at the intersection of the liberal arts, sciences, and technology. “
Based on data from the Admissions Office, SMU had issued admission letters to 59 prospective students from within and outside of Cameroon as of Monday, October 22, 2012. Here is an analysis of the admission data:
a) Total number of admitted students = 59
b) Nationalities of admitted students = Cameroon (52), the United States (3), Tunisia (2), Nigeria (1), and Canada (1)
c) Number of students per school = School of Business & Public Policy (46), School of Science, Engineering & Technology (11), and School of Arts & Education (2)
d) Number of students per degree level = Undergraduate Students (21) and Graduate Students (38)
e) Gender = Male (39); and Female (20)
One of the unique features of SMU is its Block Plan, where students study one course at a time for a period of one month and take an exam before moving to the next course. The Block Plan has also made it possible for the implementation of rolling admissions, which means that there is no deadline for applying into SMU. Students can also literally begin their studies at SMU at any time of the year. Given this flexibility, SMU Admissions Officers will continue to recruit students throughout the academic year.
