The registration of courses for the 2022/2023 academic year is expected to begin today, Monday, December 19, 2022.

Only students who have paid 50% or more of their academic fees will be able to register for their courses.

The registration is expected to end on February 10, 2023.

Meanwhile, management of the University of Ghana has released the academic and residential fees for the 2022/2023 academic year.

The new fees were posted on the University’s website on Tuesday, December 13, 2022.

The academic fees for some regular students have been increased by 18%, 19%, and as high as 22% based on the Schools and Colleges in the University.

A notice from the University’s website indicated that the increment in fees is due to the increase in the cost of operations and Parliament’s inability to approve the 2022/2023 academic year.

It added that the new fees include new charges approved by various student governance bodies, which contributed to the increase – GRASAG Development Levy GHS – 250, GRASAG 75th Anniversary Legacy Project charger, which will cost GHS 100, and GHS100 for the SRC Development Fund. Reprographic Fee of GHS 5 per student has been added to the fees after an order from the Courts.

As you may be aware, University of Ghana did not implement the fee increases approved by Parliament for the 2019/2020 academic year.  The main reason for deferment of the fee increases at the time was to avoid exacerbating the financial impact on parents of the pandemic which had just begun.

However, due to the increasing cost of operations and the fact that Parliament has not as at today, 13th December 2022 approved fees for the 2022/2023 academic year, it has become necessary for the University to implement the 2019/2020 approved fees as an interim measure.

Below are additional costs that have been included as approved by the respective student governance bodies, and endorsed by the University Council:

  1. GRASAG Development Levy – GHS 250
  1. GRASAG 75th Anniversary Legacy Project – GHS 100
  1. SRC Development Levy – GHS 100

By an order from the Courts, a Reprographic Fee of GHS 5 per student has been included in the fees.

Residential fees have also been increased, and an additional one-time electronic access fee of GHS 300 each is being charged to residents of the traditional halls (Volta, Commonwealth, Mensah Sarbah, Akuafo and Legon halls), as contribution towards the cost of installation and maintenance of electronic access control systems at the halls to enhance security.

Please be informed that the fee schedules published are provisional and the schedules and amounts to be paid will be updated once fees for the 2022/2023 academic year are approved by Parliament.

The University of Ghana counts on your continued support.

The provisional fee schedules are displayed on the University’s website.

Thank you.
