About UCC

The University of  was established in October 1962 as a University College and placed in a special relationship with the , Legon.

On October 1, 1971, the College attained the status of a full and independent University, with the authority to confer its own degrees, diplomas and certificates by an Act of  – The University of  Act, 1971 [Act 390] and subsequently the  Law, 1992 [PNDC Law 278].

There is currently a draft Bill to amend the  Law, 1992 (PNDCL 278) which repealed the University of Cape Coast, Act 1971 (Act 390), the University of Cape Coast (Amendment) Law, 1990 (P.D.C.L. 241) and the University of Cape Coast (Interim Administration Committee) Law, 1990 (P.N.D.C.L. 243) which established the University as an institution of higher learning. 

It is expected that, when the Bill is subsequently passed into law, the original mandate of the University will be reviewed to make room for the training of personnel in other disciplines to ensure that the focus of the University is widened. 

Besides the need to give legal backing to current practices in the University as well as ensure consistency with the Constitution of Ghana, the passage of the Bill would also position the University to meet new challenges and demands of the Ghanaian Society and beyond and to keep pace with the developments in the higher education environment.
