The management of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has agreed to extend the deadline for payment of fees for deferred students by one month.
This follows a meeting with the Minister of Education Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum.
The management of the KNUST on Wednesday announced that 6000 students have been deferred for non-payment of their fees.
Public Relations Officer at the KNUST, Dr Norris Bekoe explained that the university has over the years hit by the situation where indebted students leave school after graduating and never come back to pay.
He attributed this to the refusal of the management to apply the fee policy hence the decision to apply it now.
Dr Bekoe told TV3’s Ibrahim Abubakar that “over the years we have had challenges of students completing University and then going away with our fees partly because we had not applied the fee policy. So this time around the academic board has decided to apply the fee policy.”
