The Learner Support Unit of the Distance Learning Centre, University of Ibadan has brought it to the notice of the Management that series of mails and phone calls have been received regarding requests for the extension of deadline for the payment of the 2016/2017 academic session tuition fee. Members of the Core Management of the Centre have also not been spared in this frequent solicitation for the Management’s understanding on the matter.
I wish to note that the Distance Learning Centre is unrepentantly committed to eschewing any activity that would lead to an unnecessary elongation of the Calendar. Shifting of ground based on the torrents of appeal may not be expedient for this resolve. This is one key factor that has in time past, led to a thwart in the flow of DLC academic activities.
However, at an emergency meeting of the Core Management of the Centre held on Friday, June 9, 2017, it was resolved that the appeal should be favourably considered. Therefore, you are requested to note that deadline for payment of Tuition Fee for the 2016/2017 academic session has been extended to 12:00 midnight of Friday, July 7, 2017.
You are also to note that this would be the first and last extension. Any cause for such after the set date would automatically attract a late payment fee of ten thousand naira only (N10,000.00) which the portal would be automated to charge before registration. If you make payment and your payment does not reflect, kindly endeavour to click on the REQUERY PAYMENT TAB. Find the appropriate payment reference, then click on retry.
The Centre is working out modalities to ensure that the Calendar takes its full course. Please be assured of DLC’s commitment to see that you have a smooth and hitch free session.
May God grant you success all the way. Amen.
