The University of Lagos Management has said Students will now pay high fees for undergraduate studies henceforth in the institution.

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

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

Recall that the students of the institution previously 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, students are to pay N140,250.

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

“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 the college of medicine would pay N190,250,” the statement said.

It was learnt that a SSANU representative at the meeting, Rasaki Yusuf asked for a rebate for staff members with children in the university but the VC insisted that the new charges were set nationally and could not be modified for specific categories of students.

Ogunsola, however, gave the option of staff paying in instalments but with a condition to pay up one month before final exams.

Efforts to reach the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Alagba Ibraheem, for a comment proved abortive as calls put through him were not answered and text messages were also not replied to.
