Registry, as the hub of administration in the Polytechnic, has several Units. It is basically saddled with the responsibilities of managing students’ academic activities from admission to convocation and staff welfare from entry to exit. Registry’s scope of work is as wide as it is diverse. It is basically divided into several component Units which are seamlessly linked and centrally coordinated with a single line of reportage to the Registrar. These units and their functions include:
1. ACADEMIC OFFICE
This is the Unit saddled with the following functions:
