The attention of the Students Affairs Division of the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) has been drawn to the complaint of the Students Union Government Care Taker Community on behalf of the student body of the new schedule of fees approved by the University Management.
Consequently and emergency meeting of the Care Taker Committee and the Dean was held on Saturday at 1pm in the Dean’s office to review the situation. Thus it was noted in the meeting that the University does not charge Tuition fees just like any other public University in Nigeria. However their are Sundry Charges for Field Trip, Cadaver, Teaching Practice, Laboratory, Diesel and Matriculation and Convocation Gown.
It was noted that these Charges are not new and apply only to specific and few departments except for fees for Matriculation/Convocation Gown as well as diesel which has just been introduced to support the University’s effort to sustain regular power supply in the two campus. However there is N1,000/N2,000 upward review on these sundry charges which the Students Union Government Caretaker was asked to disseminate to the Students.
This minimal increase in sundry charges is about the least the University charges among the Public Universities in Nigeria. However the fee for Convocation Gown has been removed in the interest of the students. By this memo students are encouraged to commence their online registration exercise as soon as the portal opens as we are already far behind in our Academic Calendar for 2018/2019 Academic Session.
The Students Affairs Division wishes our great and law abiding students a productive 2018/2019 academic session.
