According to Timothy Muwonge a private student’s representative at the university, a new policy was passed where the students were ordered told to complete their tuition fees by the sixth week.
“This policy is very disastrous to the continuing students because once you fail to pay the tuition in the set period it would require you to request for a dead year which would affect your studies,’’ noted Muwonge.
The private students’ representative therefore blamed the university council for passing policies without consulting the students’ representatives.
Muwonge further called upon the University council to come up with an alternative plan for the students before the situation deteriorates.
”We shall not appear in the lecture rooms on Monday,” vowed the private student’s representative
In an interview with Chimpreports, Henry Ssekiranda a first year Accounting and Finance student noted that for the past years students have not been allowed to sit exams with without completing tuition and therefore requested the university council to continue with that system.
‘’The new policy will lead the girls into temptations because most of our parents cannot raise the tuition in a small period of time,’’ stressed Josephine Namayanja an Arts in Education student at the government university.
According to two letters dated 30th August from the University bursar and the Academic registrar all students were informed on the new university policy of tuition payment and they were encouraged to pay tuition in time before the 28th September 2013 which was the deadline for the six weeks for paying tuition for the new semester.
However the plans to communicate to the Academic Registrar and the Bursar were futile because they were not in office.
