GIJ-SRC Addresses Students Grievances And Update On Management Meeting

After the online petition to have management of the Ghana Institute of Journalism reduce the sudden increment of fees, despite the uncertain times we are in, the Student Representative Council of the Ghana Institute Of Journalism have issued a memorandum explaining to students a miscommunication on continuing student’s deadline for payment of fees.

“On the issue of the deadline for fee payment, Rector has explained that there has not been any official communication to continuing students concerning the deadline for fee payment. According to him, October 9, 2020 is the deadline for freshmen and not continuing students. Continuing students should therefore disregard October 9, 2020 as the deadline for fee payment, the statement said.”

Below is the entire memorandum issued by the GIJ-SR

The Students’ Representative Council acknowledges students’ fight for the reduction of the Facility User Fees which has been increased by 5%. We are in full support of this move as we have already petitioned Management on the matter.

Prior to the upsurge of the issue on Social Media, several calls were placed to Management for feedback on our petition. Rector has acknowledged receipt of our petition with assurances that all bodies responsible will meet on the matter and revert to us.

On the issue of the deadline for fee payment, Rector has explained that there has not been any official communication to continuing students concerning the deadline for fee payment. According to him, October 9, 2020 is the deadline for freshmen and not continuing students. Continuing students should therefore disregard October 9, 2020 as the deadline for fee payment.

Also, a lot of discussions have been held with Management to reconsider their yearly stand of disallowing students, particularly, those who have not paid their fees for a new academic year from viewing their provisional results for immediate past semesters.

W e have always maintained that, fees paid during an academic year captures all courses for both semesters, hence, the idea of preventing continuing students from accessing their results on the portal because they have not paid their fees is surely not the right way to go.
