UMP postpones admission of students from Sabah, red zones

KUANTAN, Oct 2 — Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) has postponed the physical admission of students from Sabah and red zones at the Pekan and Gambang campuses, which is scheduled to begin in stages from Oct 12.

UMP deputy vice-chancellor (Student Affairs and Alumni), Prof Datuk Dr Yuserrie Zainuddin said the admission of students who have a travel history to Sabah within 14 days before the registration date has also been postponed.

“The instruction to postpone the physical admission of students covers all levels of courses and student categories. The registration of new students from Sabah and the red zones must be done online from Oct 5 to 9.

“They are allowed to be present at UMP according to the existing procedure after the situation in the state or area recovers,” he said in a statement, here, yesterday.
