It has always been the University’s tradition for students who register the first two weeks into a semester to pay a fine of Shs 50,000 as late registration.

In his plea to the University Administration, Alionzi explained that the tough economic times post Covid-19 lockdown, have made it difficult for parents and students to raise school fees, therefore, some fines like the Shs 50,000 fine needed to be waived.
