UG faces shutdown without student loans
As students await word on just whether loans will be available to the University of Guyana (UG), the institution faces closure in possibly less than a month, according to Vice-Chancellor Jacob Opadeyi.
Opadeyi yesterday told a press conference that closure was an option if only a minority of students would be able to pay their increased tuition fees come September.
The university could close as early as the second week of the semester if tuition payment remains an issue for students. Higher tuition fees were announced last month.
