The students of the University Of Calabar (UNICAL) are lamenting the hike in school fees and other levies in the varsity.
Some of the students, who bemoaned the increase describing it as outrageous, insensitive, and anti-masses, predicted that many students would drop out of school as their parents would not be able to pay.
Schoolbeginner gathered that despite the hike in tuition fees and other school charges, the University authorities has given every Student of the University 7-days ultimatum to pay their School Fees, register courses online, and other Dues or defer their admission.
It would be recalled that on the 5th January 2021, UNICAL management announced a shift in examination date and closure of online registration portals.
The release which stated that students must register courses before exams, added that registration is per course.
Examination attendance list will be generated only for the students who have duly registered their courses.
According to the release, students who fail to meet the deadline for registration will have to defer their admission for the session.
Some students of the University of Calabar have taken to social media with the hashtag “SayNoToHIKEInUNICAL“
One of the students shared his experience at the University of Calabar.
