National Open University(NOUN) School Fees for 2017-2018

Controversies arose after the 2014 session about the rumoured proposed plan of the federal government and the governing bodies on the increment of the National Open University school fees; and soon before the start of the 2015 session, fears were confirmed as there was a roll out of the adjusted, or rather, increased school fees of the National Open University.

So, if you’re planning to enrol into the National Open University and you’ve not taken a look at the new/current school fees schedule, then you might just want to pay a little more attention, as you might get the incorrect/old school fees schedule, making you a victim of misinformation.

The new fees schedule released by the management board of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) affects all newly admitted students, and it also affects old students. The fees schedule below is the current payable school fees, which began from the 2015 academic session.

Reason Why NOUN School Fees was Increased

I have seen several comments from students and applicants alike, asking why did the school senate increased her school fees. HERE is what Dr. Olubiyi Adewale (Director Lagos Study Centre) has to say about the fee increment in NOUN and we quote him below;

One thing that should come into our mind as students and staff, is this. First thing we need to iron out is that the increase in fees is just Seven thousand, five hundred Naira ONLY (7,500 Naira) across board. This amount is normally considered minimal to take care of the incoming e-facilitation platform, which the senate tagged “iLearn”.

Currently, more than 760,000 students have logged in to the iLearn portal and have mostly commended the initiative and the ideal behind such great platform.

Likewise, having a fully functional portal like the “NOUN iLearn” is now a global standard for open universities. It is the student that will benefit overall in the long run.
