The Federal Ministry of Education, part of the Federal Government (FG), raised the tuition for new students at Federal Government Colleges, also known as Federal Unity Colleges, to ₦100,000.
This was stated in a directive sent to all Federal Unity College principals on May 25, 2023, with the reference number ADF/120/DSSE/I, from the Office of the Director of the Senior Secondary Education Department of the Federal Ministry of Education.
New students are required to pay ₦100,000 instead of the previous N45,000, as stated in the circular titled “Approved fees and charges for Federal Unity Colleges (1st Term) for new students” and signed by Hajia Binta Abdulkadir, Director of Senior Secondary Education.
“The most recent fee or charge escalation will have an impact on nearly all facets and activities of the school, including tuition and boarding costs, uniforms, books, deposits, workbooks, prospectuses, caution fees, ID cards, stationery, clubs and societies, sports, extra lessons, insurance, etc.
Please be advised that the ministry has only approved the fees and charges indicated below for all Unity Colleges, according to the memo. #FG
