Tertiary Institutions especially the Universities are liable to cut their fees by up to 55% soon. Central University has already reduced its fees for 2020-2021 academic year for as much as 55% in some programmes as one way of supporting parents and students post COVID-19. Being the foremost private Christian tertiary institution in Ghana, the University Council has approved varying percentage reduction of fees for programmes in its eight schools. International freshmen and women will be enjoying comprehensive fee reductions ranging “between” 6% to 55%. Ghanaian students will also enjoy fee reduction for most programmes and general freezing of last academic year’s fees for the rest of the programmes. This decision by the tertiary institution may serve as a model for many other tertiary institutions to follow. Students have already complained saying their fees have been wasted the whole of 2019/2020 academic year.
