LASU to offer exceptional students 50% pay cut – Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello says

Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo has put in place a policy to guarantee 50 per cent refund of school fees to students with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 4.50 in every session.

Vice Chancellor (VC) Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello gave this assurance yesterday during the matriculation of the 2020/2021 students.
She said the policy was to promote healthy competition among the students, who consistently maintain average of the CGPA.

Six thousand, six hundred and forty-eight students were matriculated into the academic programmes of the institution.
Olatunji-Bello said LASU had over the years remained on the path of academic excellence and distinguished itself in the comity of universities.

She said: “We are committed to excellence and determined to emerge as the best university in West Africa.”

“Our students’ welfare is top on our priorities, as we will ensure that the learning environment remains conducive for learning.
“My dear matriculating students, please note that the distance between matriculation and convocation is quite wide and yet so close, it is important that the journey ends successfully.’’

Olatunji-Bello advised the matriculating students to be regular in attendance at lectures, carry out assignments, shun deviant behaviours and avoid indecent dressing, among others.
“The university has zero tolerance for cultism, examination malpractices, corruption and hooliganism.

“Those found culpable will be dealt with in line with their disciplinary mechanisms, “she said.
The acting Dean, Students Affairs Division, Dr. Tajudeen Olumoko, said that the cardinal objective of the exercise was to acquaint the students with the fundamental principles, norms and culture of the institution.
