Students at the Northern Caribbean University (NCU), are planning to protest a new rule which could see them being expelled after being absent from more than five chapel sessions.
Past academic vice-president of the United Students Movement, Jevon Minto, said students received an email on October 3, outlining the new stipulations which took effect on October 7.
He points out that while students are becoming livid, plans are in place to have a meeting with the school board today with the view of having the penalties reduced.
He admits that while attendance at chapel sessions have dwindled students should not be subjected to such drastic measures of coercion.
Associate Director at NCUís Corporate Communications, Marketing and Public Relations department, Charles Evans, said he was aware of the new policy, however, he declined to comment further on the issue.
Efforts to reach President of NCU Dr Trevor Gardener were unsuccessful.
