Lagos State University (LASU) has increased its school fees by over 120 percent.
This is billed to begin with the incoming 100 level students for the 2019/2020 session.
The university authorities said the old students would continue to pay the initial N25,000 until they graduate from the institution while new students would pay the new increase of N67,048.50 per session.
EduCeleb.com recalls that LASU hiked school fees by over 500 percent in 2014 while Governor Babatunde Fashola was in power.
It took series of protests for the former governor to revert to status quo.
But a circular issued by the institution showed that the hike in school fees would kick-off with the new intakes.
The circular was titled, “2020/2021 online admission screening exercises (100-level – both regular without comprehensive entrepreneurship training and regular with comprehensive entrepreneurship training – and direct entry candidates”.
“This online screening exercise is a mandatory requirement for entry into Lagos State University. The Tuition Fees for the Regular Student without Comprehensive Entrepreneurship N67,048.50 only per session.”
LASU’s spokesman, Adekoya Ademola said the increment had been approved by the Governing Council of the University and the Lagos State Government has also keyed into it.
Mr Adekoya who described the increment as marginal justified the decision based on the need for the school to generate some funds to manage its affairs.
He also claimed that some parents and even the state government had commended the university for not skyrocketing the fees to an amount they could not afford.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
