JUST IN :AUCC Students cry foul over GH¢400 Charge per Course to retake a Paper

Students of the African University College of communications University College (AUCC) are crying foul of an alleged high charges in the cost of writing a failed paper in the University.

According to information reaching EducationGhana.net, Students in the University are supposed to pay GH¢400 to retake a course they might have failed. An amount believed to be outrageous and a burden on the Students.

Students also alleged that the authorities gave only 13days vacation break to students and expected them to pay 70% of their fees within three weeks after reopening school before they can register of which defaulters attract a penalty.

“Students must pay 80% of their fees before they can sit for midsemester examination. You cannot sit for the examination even if you pay 79% of the required fees.”the  students alleged,saying victims will be scored 0 out of 100 of which 60% will be left for them to fight for.

According to the Students, after preventing them from sitting for the midsemester examinations, students must pay the penalty for defaulting the 70% payment even though they would be scored 0%.

When students eventually pay the full amount of the fees without the penalty, they won’t be allowed to sit for the end of semester examinations.

“When students pay the full fees plus the penalty, students have chance of scoring only 60% at the end of semester examinations – something that’s highly unlikely.” they said.

“The heart wrenching aspect of it all is that, in the unlikely event that students failed in the exams, students are required to pay a whopping Gh400 per course to retake the paper. Imagine you failed 5 because you’re not able to pay your fees on time. That’s Gh2000”.the students alleged.

In effect, even though students are not allowed to write the midsemester examinations because they could not pay 80% of their fees, which they are scored 0% for, they must pay 100% of the fees plus the penalty eventually or risked not partaking in the end of semester examinations. And in the unlikely event – which is highly likely, the students score an E in the exams, he/she would be required to pay Gh400 per paper to retake,a situation the students described as an apparent extortion.
