Over 6000 KNUST students defer courses for non payment of fees

Over 6000 students, representing about 8 per cent of the 85,256 student population of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have had to defer their courses in line with university regulations for non payment of school fees.

The Academic Board of the KNUST deferred the programmes of the students for non payment of academic user fees.

Early this year, the university extended the payment date from March 21, 2022 to April 11, 2022 to allow the students to honour their obligation.

However, as of last week when mid-semester examinations had started, the over 6000 students had reneged on their promises following an earlier plea.

Some of the students started receiving messages from the university’s administration on Tuesday afternoon that they have been deferred due to their inability to meet the minimum requirements of the KNUST fees Credit and Debt Management Policy.

“Dear student, your programme has been deferred as you have not met the minimum requirement of the KNUST fees Credit and Debt Management Policy. Thank you,” one of the messages, a copy of which has been pasted below read.
