2. The Uofa will never resort to calling you to demand payment for your program of study nor would we harass you in any way for any reason

3. The UofA encourages all students to be ware of fraudulent activities perpetrated by certain individuals who are in no way connected with us but who engage in criminal activities in attempts to defraud our students.

4. For your sake, please, do not send money through any means, to anyone that claims to be from the UofA. You should only send money following an official notification and as agreed between you and the UofA for your program.

5. UofA is currently working hard to be fully accredited once again with the relevant authorities. Any calls or communications from any one claiming or soliciting your transfer to a different university for the purposes of accreditation or any other purpose is fraudulent and should not be entertained. If you receive such calls, please, hang up or ask the caller to send an official email. If you do stay with the caller, do so long enough to obtain basic information from them, then, hang up and dial our fraud hotline to report it and verify the authenticity of the call
