Education PS Reaffirmed That There Would Be No Fee Increase for University Students

Rumors that public colleges might increase tuition for students enrolling in classes starting the following month have been dispelled by the government.

The government disclosed that it had authorized each of the 32 public universities to choose its own fees in order to raise enough money for its operations, in addition to warning that serious actions would be taken against institutions found to have broken the established fee guidelines.

This came to light after the government warned that those schools found to have broken the established fee criteria would face harsh punishment.

Belio Kipsang has pledged that this will not happen, despite concerns from students and their guardians that the government may raise the price of attending college.

This was revealed by Kipsang at a speech he gave in the Kiambu County city of Thika. According to his claims, the government will pay for the study of about 45,000 university students, and those who can pay will only be assessed a maximum of Sh22,000 every semester.

The formation of a national open university is one among the suggestions made by the Presidential Working Group on Education, which was reiterated by Kipsang on Friday. At a fundraising for the building of extra classrooms and dorms, he said this while addressing parents, students, and teachers at Chania Boys High School. The money collected will be used to build more classrooms and dorms.

The organization in charge of placing students in public universities also stated that the new model, under which students enrolled in the same courses at various institutions will pay various prices, is intended to increase the institution’s autonomy for effective planning and operations. The agency’s description of the new model clarified this.

Mercy Wahome, the chief executive of Kenya Universities and Colleges Placement Service (KUCCPS), claims that the government has refrained from mandating that public universities charge the same amount for similar courses.

Dr. Wahome contends that public colleges are free to set their own tuition rates in order to remain a competitive choice for students.

Geoffrey Monari, CEO of the Universities Fund, asserts that the new model gives universities autonomy for more effective planning and management.

Each and every university must be able to continue operating because the government will no longer provide universities with a monthly capitation payment. The student fees paid at the start of each semester would serve as the sole source of income, he continued.

In addition, yesterday when she was speaking somewhere else, Vice President Rigathia Gachagua debunked the notion that only those with money would be able to afford a university degree.

Regardless of their socioeconomic status, all students in the nation will have access to higher education in the future thanks to the recommendations given by the Presidential Working Team on Education Reforms, claims the DP.

No student would be turned away under the proposed structure for the new higher education system. Gachagua asserted that “as the administration of Kenya Kwanza, we are able to assure parents of this.”
