The facilities fee is mandatory.
Tuition & Fees for Master's Programmes are generally higher than undergraduate programmes
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.
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.
All students are required to pay facilities fee of $50,000 (US$250) annually. This fee encompasses:
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.
The replacement of a student identification card costs $1000
A charge of $5,000 per student, per make up test
Non-tuition Fees and charges are quoted in Guyana dollars
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.
