Kwasu School Fees

Kwara State University is a government-owned institution that pays its school fees per academic session. Also, like other state universities, indigenes pay less than non-indigenes. In addition, there are other fees to be paid by the students that are not included in the school fees. Failure to pay the stipulated fees by any student attracts a late payment charge of 20 percent of the amount to be paid.

However, like it is applicable in Nasarawa State University, Kwasu’s first-year students pay less than others. From the second year, the school fees remain the same through the final year. This is so because tuition and entrepreneurship fees are added to the returning students’ fees. All their fees are to be paid online.
