The University of Liberia has disclosed plans to throw out student from the university due to financial non-compliance reportedly amounting for US$1.4 million dollars.
UL through its President Dr. Julius Nelson at a press conference threaten to drop students who are not in full financial compliance with the institution.
This is because according to him, good number of the students have not met up with their obligations to the university especially the undergraduate students.
“If you want to drink from the fortune of the faculty and staffs of the university, pay for it,” Nelson warms.
Dr. Nelson holds that with the level of expansion of students, there is a need for more facilitates to be provided as such, if those fees are paid, it will help the university in this direction.
He claimed the payment of tuition by the student’s populace for the academic semester is below ten percent of the full amount; hence, he is appealing to the students to do the needful.
As part of strategies to ensure students are in full compliance, Nelson also said, only students who are zero balance will be allowed to sit the final exams and enrol next academic semester.
He noted that monies received from the government go toward the payment of staffs or employees of the institution; hence, it is fees raised from students that enable to university to operate.
The digital enrolment platform is being tweaked to automatically remove students who are in arrears at the end of the semester.
Undergraduate students will not be allowed to sit for final exams without REGISTRATION COMPLETE confirmation, which is the requirement for student’s Identification Card.
Therefore, we are strongly appealing to all of our students, Undergraduate, Professional and Graduate Schools, to joyfully and lovingly pay their registration and tuition fees using the various banking options we have provided as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation, understanding, support and partnership.
