Starford suspends two students for pretesting tuition hike

By Rehan Ajuet Moun


At least two students from Starford International University have been reportedly suspended for allegedly protesting the recent tuition increment by the administration.

The varsity management suspended Mr. Akech Thiong Gurech Anyan and Mr. Ngor Manyuat Leer for acting negatively against the imposed tuition fees.

According to a document No.1 Citizen Daily Newspaper has obtained, the management of Starford University hiked the registration fees from local currency, South Sudanese Pounds to US dollar.

“In reference to the University senate meeting held on 24th/05/2024, the management resolved to make uniform adjustment regarding tuition fees from degree programs which is $300 and diploma which is $250,” partly reads the statement.

But this did not sit down well with some of the students who protested the newly imposed registration fees.

In a sad turn of events, Starford took stern administrative measures against above-mentioned undergraduates for defying hiked registration fees.

“This prompted the following students to act negatively toward administration Mr. Akech Thiong Gurech Anyan and Mr. Ngor Manyuat Leer, as such they are hereby dismissed from the Stanford International University with immediate effect from today,” added the letter dated June 11.

The suspended duo are from the College of Humanities and Social Science, and the College of Law respectively.

However, an effort by No.1 Citizen Daily Newspaper to get a comment from Starford management and students’ reaction over what transpired did not materialize by press time.
