No plan to increase LASU tuition fee
Management of the Lagos State University (LASU) has clarified rumours on the increase of the institution’s tuition fees, saying it has no plan to increase tuition.
The University disclosed that what was increased is the acceptance fee for new intakes and not tuition fees.
The clarification, as obtained by Naija News, is contained in the University’s official bulletin as obtained by which was signed signed by Mr Adekoya Martins, Coordinator, LASU, Centre for Information Press and Public Relations Unit.
Adekoya disclosed that the acceptance fee, which is only payable once by freshly admitted candidates, was increased from N10,000 to N20,000.
“Attention of LASU Management has again been drawn to the erroneous insinuations making the rounds, especially on the social media, regarding a plan to increase or purported increase in the school fee being paid by its students presently.
” What the university has done is to increase the acceptance fee from N10,000 to N20,000 and this remains the cheapest in Nigeria compared to what other universities charge as their acceptance fee.
“The university management, however, wishes to reiterate that there is no increment in tuition, neither are there plans to effect any increment,” Adekoya said.
