To All Students and Staff of Valley View University

Dear VVU Students and Staff,
Again, I bring you warm greetings from the Office of the Vice-Chancellor. Signs are that Covid-19 shall retire soon, hopefully. The recent address by the President of the Republic gives the impression that schools may reopen fully not too far from now. In the meantime, here is an update you may want to have.

‘Summer’ Session
The Summer Session has successfully ended. The Adventist Health International cohort of students ended their classes July 15, 2020, and the Summer Nursing session will end on August 11, 2020. Final-year Nursing students reported on July 13 to begin the revision session in preparation towards the professional licensing examinations in August 2020.

Supplementary Examinations
Students who could not write the Second Semester and Sandwich III examinations due to internet inaccessibility or inability to pay fees were expected to register for the supplementary examinations from July 27-29, 2020. The examinations will take place from August 3-7, 2020.

Sandwich Session
Registration for the First Session of Sandwich 2020/2021 opened on July 9 and will close on August 7. Classes commence online on August 10, 2020. The e-learning site has already been zero-rated, so that students do not spend their money/data for the online classes. 

Electronic Payment System
The Information Technology Services Department and the Finance Office have successfully introduced additional electronic platforms to make fee payment convenient and faster. Payments can now be made using Visa Card or Master Card. Simply visit epayment.vvu.edu.gh and select a payment option (i.e., Visa Card, Master Card, Mobile Money) and follow the prompts to make payment. The *800*50# short code for payment through Mobile Money is still available. Payments made through the Prudential Bank Transflow should directly hit your iSchool account within 10 minutes.

Towards a Paperless System
As part of the measures to improve communication, workers have undergone paperless training sessions. The training focused on how to use digital tools (Google Suite) to interact and collaborate digitally. In addition to sending and receiving emails, workers can now keep records, make requests and trace approvals, and manage meetings digitally. This is a move towards a paperless system that shall come into force.

Online Admissions Team
My appreciation goes to the online admissions team which has effected remarkable changes to enhance efficiency in the admission process. Additionally, the team is reaching out to prospective applicants through Live Chat, WhatsApp, Facebook, E-mail, other social media platforms, and phone calls with ten new hotlines. Interactive sessions dubbed “Admission Webinar Series” will commence on Friday, July 31, 2020.

Church Building
Finally, the gigantic chapel building has been roofed. We still need GHC5,000,000.00 to be able to complete this project. It will serve the University in several other ways besides worship services. A committee has been tasked to help raise funds to complete the project.

Let us continue to adhere to the health and safety protocols against Covid-19 even as we pray for God’s protection and healing!

Thank you.

In your service,
  
Daniel K. Bediako
Vice-Chancellor
