According to Ezekiel Machogu, the secretary of the cabinet for education, all students who have obtained admission letters are required to report to their respective universities by Monday of the following week.
Machogu said Thursday during his appearance before the National Education Committee that no student should be expelled from school due to unpaid fees.
“All students will be admitted as we are processing the funding for first-year students,” Machogu said.
“We will be giving the universities the funds so that they don’t say that we are admitting first-year students without the funds.”
Machogu said they will be writing a circular letter to the universities to allow students to be absorbed in the institutions.
This comes after MPs sought to know whether students will be allowed in their institutions on Monday, yet they haven’t received their scholarships or loans and have not paid fees.
In his response, Machogu said students don’t have to wait until they receive the scholarship or loans to report to school.
As of August 23, 75,272 students have applied for scholarships and loans.
“Only 30 per cent of university applicants have successfully applied for university funding days before the institution’s opening date,” he said.
