Tuition fee reduction for private colleges and universities - COVID-19 online education

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

Here are few suggestions or ideas that Private Colleges, Universities and Ministry of Education can take into account in the situation of COVID-19: (please do read the context part to understand the situation)

1) Most of the resources provided by the university (Labs, events, facilities, study spaces, networking, workshops, infrastructure) are closed/restricted and there is a compromise in education as everything is online. Hence, the tuition fee can be reduced from March 2020 till the university reopens all the facilities.

2) For students who are paying monthly and have financial issues, A deferment provision of the fee can be provided for the next few months until the situation gets better.

More Context:

As everyone knows student pays a huge amount of fee. There are a lot of uncertainties during this COVID-19 situation.
1) There is a lockdown in the country affecting the incomes of our parents.
2) Lots of people have lost their jobs and are not in the condition to pay a huge amount of fees.

The current condition of online education:
1) Very poor quality educational material
2) Non-professionalism in the way of teaching
3) Bad video and audio quality
4) Non-structural educational content
5) Unorganized way of teaching

We are paying a huge fee for online education without using much of the university’s resources compared to normal situations. But the universities are expecting us to pay FULL FEE like a normal situation.

Just like we are ready for online education, universities should also consider these aspects and make considerable changes in the fee amount. If no practical solution is given, along with the educational stress and being away from family in these critical situations, financial burden adds up to the stress of the students. I hope this message reaches the Ministry and they can give us a practical solution for tuition fees.
