Delsu Management Yield To Students Out Cry As They Reduce School Fees Drastically (Read Full Details)



In Regards to the DELSU Fee Increment, the Management of the Delta State University, Abraka, once again met with the representatives of students’ associations made up of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), the National Association of Delta State Students (NADESSTU), the Students Union Government (SUG) and representatives of the different faculties in the University to conclude the conversation initiated on Monday 15th March 2021 to deliberate on the fees adjustment. The meeting, which was cordial, evaluated wider issues including the need for an improved study environment and quality academic service delivery to be evolved through a collaboration among all stakeholders in the University. The deliberation also worked out strategies to cushion the effect of the fees and other financial matters on all stakeholders.

The following decisions were reached after an exhaustive deliberation:

1. A sustainable means of dialogue was established to monitor and ensure implementation of decisions reached at the meeting.
2. It was agreed that there should be a 15% reduction in school fees for students except for those in programmes in Law, Medicine, Pharmacy, and Nursing. Management explained that these four professional programmes are not only regulated by professional bodies, but are generally quite expensive to run all over the world.
3. The University Management, in order to reduce the burden of fees on indigent students, has established a work study programme whereby interested students can work within the University and earn some income to support themselves.
4. In order to reduce the burden of the payment of fees by students, Management has worked out a system of payment by instalments to enable students to pay in two instalments of 70% on registration and 30% before the second semester examination. The meeting agreed that payment by instalment is only available on application and approval by the University.
5. The meeting commended the students for their maturity, resort to dialogue and the responsible and peaceful manner they conducted themselves.
