Pull quote: “We as SRCs want to urge students to pay whatever they can towards their tuition fees.”- Pamela Gertze, Nust SRC president

On Wednesday, 17 March, the student president of the Namibia University of Science and Technology (Nust), Pamela Gertze, released a press statement.
In the live announcement, she said the university’s council, management and student representative council (SRC) agreed to grant students reprieves regarding the registration process.
Before this decision was reached, students were prevented from registering for the current semester if they owed the institution fees.
The SRC rejoiced as the plea of many students was heard.
The announcement - made on social media - stated: All senior students will register online provided that they owe the university N$7 800 or less, while students with special circumstances will have to consult the director of student services for guidance or assistance. These terms, once agreed to by students who wish to do so, are accompanied by terms and conditions.
Gertze urged students to actively work on settling their outstanding fees to avoid further complications including being unable to register in future.

The following rules and regulations apply to students who owe more than N$ 10 000 and, under special circumstances are not still able to bring the amount down to N$7 800:

1.The students must settle the full amount balance current and new owed to Nust by 30 June 2021.
2.Students must pay at least 25% of the balance per month after registration until the indicated date of June.
3.The payment agreement applies for tuition for this semester only.
4.The withdrawal, abandonment or the cancellation of studies from Nust does not release the student from meeting the above said obligations.
5.Failure to make payments as agreed will prevent registration for the future semester.
6.The university is not obligated to remind the student of the due dates; it remains the student’s responsibility to adhere to the dates as indicated to avoid penalties.
“We as SRCs want to urge students to pay whatever they can towards their tuition fees,” Gertze said.
The registration period has been extended to 24 March to accommodate this amendment.
