CK TEAM University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS) is currently facing turmoil as students express discontent over a recent drastic increase in school fees. The hike, amounting to over 25 percent, has triggered widespread anger among the student body.
According to reports obtained by 247 Media Ghana, both postgraduate students and incoming Level 100 freshmen are particularly affected, with changes in fees even after admission letters have been released. Some postgraduate students are reportedly considering terminating their admissions due to the financial strain imposed by the unexpected fee adjustments.
The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) has taken action by writing to the university’s administration, seeking clarification and urging a reduction in the revised fees. However, there has been no response from the administration, leaving students frustrated and anxious about their academic future.
The situation is further complicated by issues surrounding resit examination fees. The university is allegedly demanding a 300 Ghana cedis registration fee, followed by an additional 70 Ghana cedis per paper registration after the initial payment. In response, the SRC has issued a warning to students, advising them not to make any payments until official communication is received from the SRC.
In an effort to escalate awareness and garner support for their cause, the SRC has released a flyer today, emphasizing the immediate need for a reduction in school fees. The undergraduate students, in particular, have been vocal about their concerns ever since the SRC unveiled the detailed fee breakdown.
As the university community awaits a response from the administration, the atmosphere remains tense, and students are anxiously hoping for a resolution that will alleviate the financial burden imposed by the recent fee adjustments.
247 Media Ghana will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as events unfold.
