Fee Categories

Tuition & Fees for Master's Programmes are generally higher than undergraduate programmes

 

Fees per credit

There is no uniform across-the-board fee per credit. Fees per credit are calculated by dividing the year's fees for the specific programme and category of student by the total number of credits attributed to that programme (profile) for the year.

For example, a resident Guyanese student doing the degree programme, other than Law, Medicine, Nursing or Tourism, pays $228,448 per year. The fee per credit in these programmes is $228,448 divided by the total number of credits of the specific year, e.g. the cost per credit in Year I Sociology is $228,448/28 while the fee per credit in Year III Agriculture is s $228,448/35. This principle is applied to any year and any category of students.

The application of this principle is most important when you are registering for less or more credits than is specified by the year's profile. Your fee is pro-rated based on the excess or reduction in the number of credits for which you are registering. If the courses being registered for are all from the profile for a specific year then the example above applies.

 

Fees for courses from different years

If you are registering for courses from different years the fee is computed on the basis of cost per credit for the specific year from which the course is chosen.

For example, if a student is registered for a total of 32 credits of which 18 are attributed to Year I and 14 to Year II, the fee should be computed on the basis of the cost per credit for Year I multiplied by 18 and the cost per credit in Year II multiplied by 14. The summation of these two computations will be your fee for that year. The fee might or might not exceed $188,800 or any other flat fee for a year's profile. That, notwithstanding the excess or deficit sum, still stands.

Non-Tuition Charges

All students are required to pay facilities fee of $50,000 (US$250) annually. This fee encompasses:

  • Lab Fees
  • Examination Fees
  • UG Students Society Fee
  • Sports Fee
  • Library Cautionary Deposit
  • General Cautionary Deposit
  • Student ID Card
  • Learning Resource Fee
 

Late Fees

Students completing registration after the approved date are required to pay a late registration fee of $12,000.

- Students completing a change of registration after the deadline are required to pay a late fee of $12,000.

Students submitting proof of payment to the Bursary are required to pay a late fee of $12,000.

 

Replacement cost of Student ID

The replacement of a student identification card costs $1000

 

Make-up Tests

A charge of $5,000 per student, per make up test

Non-tuition Fees and charges are quoted in Guyana dollars

Refunds

The University has in place a refund system. Refunds are granted for exemptions, leave of absence and withdrawals.

It must be noted that refunds are only granted if the deadlines are observed. The refunds are calculated on a similar basis to the manner in which the fee was calculated. The principles above are therefore applicable to exemptions, withdrawals and leave of absence.

It should, however be noted, that the fees are pro-rated when refunds are being determined on the basis of the number of hours of tuition to which the student would have been entitled prior to the submission of the application. Students who apply for leave of absence and for complete withdrawal from the University, before tuition commences, will only be required to pay an administrative cost.

Please note that all fees are subject to change.
