The Lagos State University (LASU) has said it has no plan to increase the institution’s tuition despite increment in the acceptance fee for newly admitted students.
This was clarified in the university’s official bulletin signed by Adekoya Martins, coordinator, LASU’s centre for information, press and public relations unit.
Adekoya said the university only increased its acceptance fee from N10, 000 to N20,000, pointing that the fee was payable once by candidates recently offered admission by the institution.
The bulletin reads “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.”
