New students in the faculties of Pharmacy and college of health sciences will pay N190,200 and the returning students will pay N128, 200 respectively.
The institution noted that the fee modification which takes effect from the 2023/2024 academic session, has been established to ensure a fair and balanced fee structure throughout the university’s faculties.

Their counterparts in the University of Jos also came out en masse to protest the hike in tuition fees with students from both institutions calling on concerned parties to come to their aid.
