This petition is addressed to the Director of a premiere educational institution in Pakistan, FAST-National University of Computers and Emerging Sciences.

Students enrolled in FAST-National University come from all socio-economic backgrounds. Students find it difficult to pay the high tuition fees, and some have to resort to loans and a forced to work on part–time jobs. The massive increase in tuition fee for the upcoming year shall have an adverse effect on many students.

This is why we, students of FAST-National University, ask the Director of FAST - National University Lahore, Dr.Amjad Hussain, to take due consideration of problems faced by students when paying fees, and revert the decision to increase the Fee by such a high proportion as stated on the University's website. They may rather implement a gradual increase of 5-6%, as in previous years.
