The next academic session’s prices for both new and returning students will be adjusted, according to the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State.
The university said that new students in the faculties of arts, law, and humanities will pay N151,200 while returning students in the same faculties will pay N89,200 in a press release by its public relations officer, Abiodun Olarewaju.
The tuition for new students in the College of Health Sciences and Pharmacy faculties is N190,200, while the tuition for returning students is N128.200.
The institution noted that the fee modification which takes effect from the 2023/2024 academic session, has been established to ensure a fair and balanced fee structure throughout the university’s faculties.
The OAU has joined a few other federal colleges that have recently raised tuition rates with this statement.
Recall that University of Lagos students protested twice in one week in response to the school’s increase in tuition costs.
Their peers at the University of Jos joined them in large demonstrations against the increase in tuition fees, and students from both institutions appealed to all parties to support them.
