HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES WANTS TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS TO ADOPT SEMESTER BASED TUITION FEE PAYMENT                                                                                                                21-12-23

By Sadiq Aminu                                                      The House of Representatives has urged Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria to adopt a semester-based school fee payment system.

Adopting a motion by a member from Jigawa state Mr Sa’ad Wada-Taura at plenary, the house also urged the Federal Ministry of Education to work closely with institutions and stakeholders in the
education sector to provide the necessary support for adopting the school fee payment system.

Leading the debate, the Lawmaker observed that the current annual school fee payment system in Nigeria presents financial challenges for students and families given the recent subsidy removal and single-window forex policy.

According to him, adopting the payment system can minimize the financial strain on students, improve access to higher education, and create a more transparent financial structure for institutions.

“The House is aware of the anticipated benefits of adopting a semester-based school fee payment system for tertiary
institutions.

“International universities, including the University of California and the University of Sydney, recently implemented semester-based fee payment systems to maximize financial convenience
and reduce the strain on students and parents.

Adopting the motion, the house mandated the Committees on University Education, Polytechnics and Higher Technical Education and Federal Colleges of Education to investigate the viability of adopting the system while considering the specific needs and circumstances of each institution.

The house also directed the committee to report back within four weeks for further legislative action.
