UWI students in need of financial aid: Students at the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI) have been given until January 15, 2015 to settle all outstanding tuition balances for the first semester of the 2014/2015 academic year which ended in December 2014.
According to reports from the Guild of UWI Students, this payment deadline must be done in order for UWI students to be considered duly registered for the second semester which starts on January 19, 2015.
Tuition fees for the new semester are due at the start date of the new semester for UWI students. The guild says students will not be able to sit final exams in May if they do not clear their balances from the first semester.
Meanwhile, UWI students who cleared their first semester balance but failed to pay the fees for the new semester by the January 19, 2015 date, will be allowed to register. However, a one percent (1%) charge on outstanding balance will apply until the fees have been paid in full.
The UWI Mona campus has implemented tighter financial regulations following a April 2012 student protest over the university’s decision to bar students from sitting final exams because of outstanding tuition fees.
According to research, two members of the then UWI student guild were punished for their role in leading the protest that disrupted final exams.
