EXCLUSIVE: UNIBEN Increases JUPEB Tuition Fees

Management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Edo State, has approved an increment in charges payable by JUPEB students.

The new approval was contained in a memo to the JUPEB centre’s team, a copy of which was exclusively obtained by CAMPUS GIST.

According to the internal memo, while science students are to now pay N210,000, non-science students are to pay N200,000 as charges.

The memo which was signed by Prof S. O. Aibueku, JUPEB chairman, however, added that the N50,000 acceptance fee remains same.

“I wish to bring to your notice that consequent upon the gracious approval of the Vice-Chancellor, JUPEB UNIBEN Study Centre now has a new regime of fees as follows:
(a) Science student – ₦210,000
(b) Non-Science students – ₦200,000”, he said.

“The purpose of this memo is to request that you put this up in our communication with the students.
The ₦50,000.00 acceptance fee remains”, added Aibueku.

CAMPUS GIST reliably gathered that the new fee regime takes effect with the resumption of new students for the 2019/2020 academic session.

Before now, students are made to pay between N150,000 to N170,000 (excluding acceptance fee) for non-sciences and science courses respectively. And this is the total fee for the duration (nine months) of the JUPEB programme.
