Kembabazi Nsimenta started this petition to Uganda Christian University Vice Chancellor and Administration
  1. Its been almost half a year in this global pandemic and countries have had to go under lockdown including Uganda that had a total lockdown of 100 days. Citizens were unable to carry on business normally and among these were parents of students at Uganda Christian University. They all haven’t been able to resume normally even after lifting the lockdown. Some have either lost their jobs or can’t pick up easily. Students haven’t been in school for 6 months. 
    Uganda has finally allowed the continuance of school for candidates, it has allowed schools to open for both online and physical schooling. However, it didn’t dictate on the status of tuition for these students. Uganda Christian University (UCU) is one of the Universities expected to start school on 15th October but have made it almost impossible for students and parents to accept and continue. UCU has put out a tuition scheme which everyone expected to be fair as they are known for exorbitant tuition fees unfortunately, nothing has Changed even with the different streams of studying ie physical and virtual studying. Students returning to school for the chosen courses are expected to pay the same tuition for two months they pay for four months. Students going to study virtually are expected to pay 90% of the same tuition they pay as physical students which includes computer fees, students activity fees to mention but a few and yet these students will not going to the campus physically.

This tuition structure has scared students and most importantly those that pay for themselves and parents. No one has been able to live normally and earn normally in this pandemic but UCU will not listen to this despite it being a church university to which every anglican church contributes money to. 

The students and parents of the university want this tuition scheme made fair for them. 

Please sign this petition so that the Vice Chancellor who promised to subsidize the tuition and the administration of UCU can be pressurized to fair the fees so that these students can be able to return to school and study
