February 10 deadline for UWI fees
Students of the University of the West Indies (UWI) have until February 10 to pay up outstanding fees for this semester or face deregistration.
In a notice to students, the university said outstanding balances over $2,000 must be settled as a pre-condition for registration.
It said students with balances over that amount will be blocked from registering for courses.
The university said students who have difficulty meeting the deadline may apply for a payment plan under terms where 25 per cent of tuition fees must be paid up front with the balance paid over the semester in equal installments.
The UWI said the installments are payable at the end of each month.
It pointed out that those students who opt for the payment plan must agree to have the plan signed off by his/her parent or guardian or sponsor.
The university says self-financing students must show evidence of how he or she plans to finance their fees.
Meanwhile, the UWI is reminding students that the deadline for adding or dropping courses is February 23.
It noted that students will be liable for tuition fees for courses selected and not dropped by that deadline.
The university said students who are not in good financial standing and who do not drop their courses by February 23 will be barred from examinations and will receive academic failure.
