The Department of Higher Education has reassured students and universities that TESAS funding will come in once universities submit audits and student performances. First-year students will be the first to receive TESAS once registered at the institutions, where K20 million out of K72 million, already released for TESAS payments.

The Department is aware of universities charging students to pay full or 70% of the compulsory and boarding and lodging despite the student being a TEASA scholarship holder. Secretary, Farther Jan Czuba, stated that scholarship funding is fully funded every year and universities should not force pearents to pay full lodging and barding fee.

With UPNG changing its fee structure yesterday to the 2018 fee structure, many students, parents and former students have brought up the concern of the reimbursement of funds; Farther Jan Czuba has said it is something they hope the UPNG new interim council can address as it is a management issue.
