The management of the University of Lagos UNILAG, Akoka, Lagos,  has increased the school fee payable by undergraduates of the university.

Previously, students of the institution paid N19,000, but the management has fixed  new fees at N190,250 for students studying medicine, while  for courses that require laboratory and studio, they  are to pay N140,250.

Programmes that do not require lab and studio are fixed at  N100,750.

This was contained in statement dated July 20, 2023 by the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) UNILAG branch following a meeting with the top management staff.

According to SSANU, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Folasade Ogunsola, met with representatives of the three non-academic staff unions on Thursday, July 20, to discuss issues concerning members’ welfare.

The union, in the statement, said the VC stated that fees would be increased for UNILAG undergraduates.

“During the meeting, the proposed fees for undergraduate students of UNILAG were disclosed.

“Students without lab and studio use will pay N100,750, those with lab use will pay N140,250, and college of medicine would pay N190,250,” the statement said.

According to the statement, a SSANU representative at the meeting, Rasaki Yusuf asked for rebate for staff members with children in the university.

But the VC said the new charges were set nationally and could not be modified for specific categories of students.
