State Universities Raise Fees, UZ Introduces Discounts

State Universities Raise Fees, UZ Introduces Discounts

State universities in the country have raised their tuition fees for the August to December 2022 semester citing the need to cover operational costs.

Lupane State University (LSU) released its new fee structure effective 1 August 2022 with the fees ranging from $179 000 to a high of $472 500. Read a notice to students:

The fees as contained in the LSU Fees Ordinance Number 1 of 2022 effective from 1 August 2022 to 31 December 2022. The fees are charged per semester. Students are required to pay 60 percent fees and register.

Fees per Faculty:

1). Faculties of Agricultural Sciences and Engineering and Applied Sciences – $285 000 per semester

2). Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences – $279 750

3). Diplomas – $298 000.

4). Faculty of Commerce – $179 750 for this semester

5). Post-graduate degree students – $472 500.

6). Students in conventional programmes – $100 000 for accommodation

7). Students on block release – $40 000 before residence allocation.

LSU director of marketing and public relations Mr Zwelithini Dlamini said they had adjusted levies and not tuition fees, according to Sunday News.

The University of Zimbabwe has, however, proposed that students who are unable to pay tuition fees must be enrolled in a work-study programme that caters for students unable to cover the costs.

UZ also introduced payment plans to ensure that students can pay their fees in a convenient and flexible manner.

Discounts for tuition fees have also been introduced at UZ with those that pay 100 percent of fees enjoying a 12.5 percent discount, those that pay 75 percent will enjoy a 10 percent discount while those that are able to pay 50 percent will get a five percent discount, only if all these payments are made by 31 October.

They, however, maintained that no student was going to miss out on learning time or fail to write examinations due to non-payment of tuition.

The National University of Science and Technology (NUST) has requested that students pay between $270 420 and $284 700 for undergraduate degrees while post-graduate degree programmes will see students parting with between $360 000 and $714 000 per semester. The university also announced that students can make payment plans to clear their fees with a requirement of 60 percent of total fees being paid in order for them to register.

kkk. there is nothing wrong with pegging fees according to similar institutions on the region but is the Gvt paying remuberation according to regional scales as well. Will civil servants afford these fees? There is a mismatch somewhere

It's high time Pindula should limit usernames to one user whether on app or website. The system is abused by a few individuals who change usernames as they wish posting a lot of unnecessary items. I recommend Pindula to review every comment which has reported to be abusive and take down the post. Let our Pindula community be clean. I thank you
