University of Ghana management has reversed its earlier decision that saw a 12% increment in fees for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Per the University’s notice signed by the registrar, Mercy Haizel Aisha, 2019-2020 fees will be applied for the 2020-2021 academic year.

This comes at the back of a series of petition questioning management’s decision to increase fees in a pandemic era.

UG Tein described the earlier decision of management as “unfortunate” and “highly insensitive” in a press release on September 15, 2020.

National NUGS on October 12,2020 also petitioned President Nana Akufo-Addo for a 50% reduction in residential and academic fees for the 2020/2021 academic year.

NUGS laid calls on UNESCO’s earlier ‘calls on governments to remove financial barriers that pose an obstacle to the re-enrollment of students at all levels which include Tertiary level fees’

The UGSRC on October 14,2020 called for a 15% reduction in fees. The acting UG-SRC President, Nana Kwame Ntow-Fianko called on mangement to consider billing students the same fees they paid for the 2019/2020 academic year, or students should be given interest-free loans to help them pay the 2020/2021 fees.

The new fees for the 2020-2021 academic year will, therefore, be published at the UG website.
