Makerere Finally Gets New Fees Policy

After wide consultations between Makerere University council, students' body and the government, the institution has finally adopted a new fees policy.

Under this new policy, students are required to pay Shs 200, 000 with in the first three weeks of every new semester and failure to do so attracts a surcharge of Shs 20,000.

"This money is part of the total fees the student will be required to pay at the end of the semester, so, it's not a separate charge, or an increment," explained the Vice chancellor Prof John Ddumba-Ssentamu.
