Public universities are required by the Ministry of Education (MoE) to refund any tuition payments made beyond the 15% increase.

According to Kwasi Kwarteng, the Ministry’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), the Ministry anticipates that the refunds would be given to the students without delay.
It could be recalled that the Ghana Tertiary Education Council (GTEC) directed all public tertiary institutions to review fees for the next academic year by a maximum 15 percent increment.
