The Plateau State University (PLASU) has announced a new fee reduction plan. The university will reduce the registration fee by 70%, from 80,000 naira to 56,000 naira.
PLASU: New Details on Fee Reduction and Calendar Reversal
We hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits. We would like to provide you with a significant update regarding the recent discussions we had with the Vice-Chancellor (VC) today concerning the issue of school fees reduction.
During our meeting with the VC, we expressed our concerns and pleaded for a reduction in school fees.
Despite our efforts, we received confirmation that the school has not yet received the official document from the government regarding the implementation of the proposed 50% subsidy for school fees.
However, acknowledging the financial burden on the students, the VC has shown understanding and compassion by offering an interim solution.
As a result, the university has decided that registration will continue, but at a discounted rate of 70% of the proposed 80,000 naira which will be 56 thousand naira with the 30% pending implementation of Government’s subsidy, same applies to non indigenes.
This will ensure that students can proceed with their academic activities while awaiting the government’s implementation of the subsidy.
We understand that this may not fully alleviate the financial strain on students and their families, but we assure you that we are doing everything in our power to advocate for your interests.
We continue to engage with the government and relevant stakeholders to expedite the implementation of the subsidy. Rest assured, we will keep you informed on any developments in this regard.
In addition to the school fees issue,
The VC explained, that the renovation of the hostel facilities, installation of WiFi and the upgrade in the school portal have been the reason for the delay in the actual commencement of activities in the school as such, a revised academic calendar will be released soon.
The purpose of the revised calendar is to ensure that your academic progression is not hampered amidst these challenging circumstances.
The VC also explained that these initiatives are essential for enhancing the overall student experience and ensuring a smooth and efficient academic environment. Consequently, the complete revival of the university’s facilities may take some additional time, but it will ultimately be done to benefit every student.
To prioritize the needs of our new students, the VC mentioned that they will be given top consideration in allocating hostel spaces. Furthermore, the VC assured us that 15 percent of the hostel spaces will be reserved for second and third-year students (200L/300L) as well as members of the Student Union Government (SUG) and students with disabilities.
This allocation represents our commitment to inclusivity and ensuring that every student has access to the necessary facilities.
Moreover, the VC made a resolute promise to expedite the implementation of the government subsidy for school fees. Maintaining a collaborative relationship with the government remains a top priority, and we are working tirelessly to ensure a swift execution of the subsidy for the benefit of our students.
The university administration is working diligently to make the necessary adjustments, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during this process.
We encourage all students to stay updated through official channels, including university websites, notice boards, and official social media platforms.
Furthermore, we urge you to reach out to your respective student representatives or the Student Union Government (SUG) if you have any questions or concerns.
SUG is here to stand for you!
