Information available to FunaabConnect from a post by the FUNAABSU General Secretary reveals the following information:
2015/2016 ACCEPTANCE FEE REDUCED
It is with utmost humility that the Students Union announces the reduction of Acceptance fee for 2015/2016 Academic Session to N30,000 which was formerly N40,000 (N5000 Computer Training fee excluded). NOTE: This does not indicate that the N5000 compulsory Computer Training fee has been cancelled. So, it is safe to assume that Freshers will be be payinh N30,000 + N5000 this session. Sequel to this, FUNAABSU will like to state the reasons why the Academic Calendar was shifted for a week.
January 4th happens to be the initial date of resumption and that same date will be the first working day of the year. The University shifted resumption date to 11th because of TSA(Treasury Single Account), of which as from January 4th freshers will start paying N30,000 into the TSA account from any bank. The candidates will visit www.remita.net to generate RRR code, then they take the code to any bank and pay N30,000.
Steps on how to generate the RRR code:
We wish to inform the student populace that the procedure is a federal government procedure and not the University policy. Visit www.remita.net and click on Federal Ministry of Education as you are paying into a University account.
Further more you click on the University you are paying into, it will display Acceptance fee, School fee, Hostel Accommodation fee, e.t.c and you click on the one you wish to pay for.
On submission, the RRR code will be generated which you will take to any bank to pay.
You can also pay through E-banking and through your ATM.
The process is a bit long, we just gave a summary on how it will look like. The University gave room to be able to address errors on time because this is the first time they will be using such platform as directed by Federal Government.
After payment of Acceptance fee which will run from January 4 to January 11, 2016, freshers can proceed to the University portal with their JAMB Registration Number and the RRR code to fill and print the Acceptance and Clearance form before they can start the University registration and proceed for orientation. Returning students will follow the same procedure to pay School fee and for Hostel Accommodation.
All said and done, I will like us to bear it in mind that the students Union has the interest of students at heart, and reasons why information comes out late is because we want to understand the information and give you the best. By tomorrow we will give you full information on how to go about registration and modalities on school fees through the office of the President or P.R.O
Thanks and God bless us all
FUNAABSU General SECRETARY
