The rapid expansion of higher education in Ethiopia within the last 7-8 years enabled the establishment of Wolaita Sodo University (WSU) in 2007. Since then, the registrar & alumni directorate as one of major components of the university has started its activities.
The registrar began its operation of student admission with its first batch, 801(609 male and 192 female) students in four faculties and sixteen departments on March 27, 2007. And now it performs its major duties across six colleges, three schools and 42 departments in under graduate programs. It deals with student cases in all regular, evening, weekend and summer programs including post graduate programs (Which are 22 MSc, MBA, MPH, MA, MLLB & 1 PhD). The registrar is functioning its activities in all the three campus (Gandaba, Otona,and Tarcha) premises through its delegates.
