Juba University calls on students to pay fees or risk being locked out
Oct 16, 2020(Nyamilepedia) — South Sudan’s top institution, the University of Juba, is set to shut its doors behind students who will not pay their school fees by the end of next week, latest circulation from the University reveals.
The circulation calls on all the current students to pay their fees by next Saturday, October 24th, or else they will not be allowed into the school premises from 26th October 2020 until they pay the minimum instalment agreed by the institution.
“As from Monday, October 26th 2020, access to the university will be through the display of Students Identity Cards,” the school announced in a statement issued this week.
“All Students are therefore advised to settle at least the first installment of their students’ fees so that they can be issued with identity Cards,” the memo continued.
The restriction will be based on a new ID card that the university will issue only to those who have paid. Those without IDs will not be granted access to the university.
“Any Student who have not processed his or her identity card, as yet, should make sure that they do so by Saturday, October 24th 2020,” stated the school.
This comes a month after the institutions of higher learning resumed in-person learning in the facilities on 14th September after being away for six months to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The call also comes at a time when the country is battling with an economic crisis which has led to fluctuation of South Sudan Pound prices leading to some businesses closing down.
The schools had been closed since March when the government instilled strict policies because of COVID-19 pandemic.
