College Of Health Sciences Plans To Increase Tuition Fee
There are strong indications that there is a concluded plan by the Management of the College of Health Sciences, Obafemi Awolowo University to increase tuition fee by N50,000 come next session.
The Provost of the College of Health Sciences, Professor Adesegun Fatusi on Thursday, January 21 during the College colloquium announced to the students that their fees would be increased. With this, students of the college would pay an additional N50,000 more than their former fees starting from next session (2015/2016 academic session)
If this development eventually pulls through, fresh students who have been offered admission to departments such as Medicine and Surgery, Dentistry and Dental Surgery, Nursing Science and Medical Rehabilitation will now pay N145,790 as against the N95,790 they paid in the beginning session (including Acceptance fee and accommodation if they remain the same).
It will be recalled that the tuition fees for all faculties were increased after last session which saw the fees increased over 200% from what it used to be. The Omole-led administration during whose tenure the increment was made is expected to end June 2016, sometimes shortly after the resumption of the 2015/2016 academic session.
