Overpayment will be reimbursed: UPNG

Students and sponsors who overpaid the University of PNG’s 2018 compulsory tuition fee will be reimbursed upon request.

His statement follows UPNG’s confirmation that the 2018 school fee structure will not be enforced as initially stated.

The decision to slash the revised K7,500 compulsory tuition fee to K2,939 was reached after the 24th January meeting with stakeholders.

Acting chancellor, Dr Nicholas Mann, clarified that normal reimbursement procedures will be applied.

Students and their parents and sponsors also have the option of forwarding the extra compulsory tuition fee to the 2019 academic year.
