Few hours after the release of the fees schedule for the 2017/2018 academic year by management of KNUST, the student’s representative council has released a notice informing students of their fight to request a reduction of the fees for regular continuing students.
In a communiqué released earlier by the SRC, they made known the fact of the reduction in fees for international students and fee paying students for the 2017/2018 academic year. They urge students to place a hold on the payment of their fees for the academic year until negotiations have ended.
Prior to the release of this communiqué, there had been calls from various quarters of the student body requesting the SRC to perform its primary mandate of fighting for the student front. Details of the release signed by the president, general secretary and the public relations officer of the SRC can be found below.
SUSPEND PAYMENT OF FEES FOR 2017/2018 ACADEMIC YEAR
As stated earlier, the SRC has already begun negotiations with school management concerning the upsurge in fees.
In light of this development, we would like to inform students to put on hold all payments of fees until negotiations have ended.
We are positive that we will reach favourable outcomes on behalf of the student.
Again, we entreat all students to remain calm as we ensure that what is fair is done!
Continue to say a prayer for the SRC.
