The Lagos State Government in line with the recommendations of the visitation panel report has approved new regime of tuition fees for fresh students of Lagos State University (LASU) starting from 2011/2012 academic session.

The new tuition fees are contained in government views (white paper) on the report of the visitation panel to LASU dated September 2011, even as it directed the governing council and the Senate to take action on the implementation.
New students admitted to the College of Medicine are expected to pay the highest amount of N348,750 with N80,000 being tuition, accommodation attracts N60,000, N50,000 for laboratories/practical/workshop/studio, examinations N25,000 while acceptance fee and manuals go for N20,000 each.



But in a swift reaction to the tuition fees increment, the Students Union rejected the action and vowed to oppose the implementation on campus, saying the body was not carried along by the government and the university management before it was approved.

A breakdown of the new tuition fee per faculty indicates that fresh students in Faculties of Arts/Education would cough out N193,750. Further details revealed that tuition fee is N50,000, acceptance fee, laboratories/workshop/practical/studio attracts N20,000 each and it also include N15,000 for field trip/teaching practice and development levy.

For Faculties of Social and Management Sciences, the new students would pay N223,750 from 2011/2012 academic session with N60,000 going for tuition fee, laboratories/practical/workshop/studio attract N25,000, acceptance fee is N20,000.
The new fee for Law programmes is N248,750, with breakdown as follows, N80,000 for tuition, N50,000 for MOOT court Law, while examinations and acceptance goes for N20,000 each as development levy is N15,000.

Communication/ Transport faculties new intakes are to pay N238,750, with N60,000 going for tuition fee, N30,000 for laboratories/practical/workshop/studio, N25,000 for examinations and N20,000 for acceptance fee.
According to government, fresh students in Science Faculty would pay N258,750, made up of N60,000 as tuition fee, N40,000 for laboratories/ practical/workshop/studio, examination N25,000, and N20,000 each for acceptance fee and manuals.

In Engineering Faculty, the new intakes would cough out N298, 750 with breakdown as follow, N80,000 for tuition fee, N45,000 for laboratories/practical/workshop/studio, N25,000 for examinations, while acceptance fee and manuals attracts N20,000 each.
It further stressed that “Government directs that the new tuition fees shall not be applied retroactively as current students are exempted from the increase. The new tuition fees will take effect from 2011/2012 academic session.

How about going to the university on credit, then pay when the students get a good job? Not a bad deal.

if i talk dem go say i too dey talk..... to be candid there is nothing like this in US. here in US the government are the one responsible for the student fee and textbook. what they do is that they beg u to come n further ur education and they will be responsible for the payment. Nigeria? i just can't say anything, i only pray that it turns for the good...
