Refund of University Fees Paid by First Years to Parents

Parents who have paid for their children’s university enrollment fees now have the opportunity to get their money back from the relevant institutions.

Vice Chancellors have made it clear that nobody was required to pay fees—parents, students, or anyone else—and those who did so did so voluntarily.

Vice Chancellors Committee Chair Professor Daniel Mugendi said that any payments were made voluntarily and without any duress. He added that the colleges would be entitled to issue refunds if a change in category resulted in a lack of a payment requirement.

Some vice chancellors of universities are defying a government order to collect fees prior to admitting first-year students. Regardless of their classification, certain colleges were found to require payment of up to 7% of tuition fees from applicants before allowing them to enroll.

Ezekiel Machogu, the cabinet secretary for education, issued a directive stating that no applicant would be turned away from a university because of costs. In defense of his colleagues, Prof. Mugendi argued that no institution demanded that parents pay tuition.

Students did note that some colleges would not admit applicants who had not paid the equivalent of 7% of their tuition.

Until the Higher Education Fund (which consists of the Universities Fund and HELB) completes its classification, new first-year students currently being admitted to public universities are immune from paying tuition fees under the new funding model, according to Prof. Mugendi.

According to the Vice Chancellors’ Committee, 7,752 of the 7,979 candidates Kenyatta University placed have been accepted. Out of 8,670 applications, Kisii University has admitted 7,160, while Moi University has admitted 4,103.

Prof. Mugendi indicated that students might pay for whatever extra services they needed, such accommodation.

Additionally, he advised parents to think about providing temporary housing and meals for youngsters while the classification process is ongoing.

According to University Funding data, 109,100 college students have applied for government loans, scholarships, or both, compared to 31,007 students who have not yet done so. In addition, 53,736 TVET students submitted financial requests to the government.

In a similar development, Education Cabinet Secretary Machogu extended the funding and scholarship application due to October 7.
