Kaduna State University School Fees (2022)

There is a reason Kaduna State is nicknamed the Center of Learning, and justifiably so. True to its name, the state is home to some of the most prestigious institutions of learning in Nigeria. In fact, the great Ahmadu Bello University, one of the very first tertiary institutions in Nigeria, is situated in Kaduna State. Sitting prominently too, is the Kaduna State University, fondly called “KASU”.

Situated in the suburban area of Ungwan Rimi, one of the poshest places in kaduna state, KASU is home to several students drawn from several religions and ethnicities from all parts of the state and beyond. The school offers courses in several disciplines of Art, Agriculture, Education, Engineering, Environmental Sciences and other Sciences, among others.

Kaduna State University has particularly taken a positive turn since the administration of Mallam Nasir El Rufai. While a lot has changed in terms of facilities and education standard, there is also a focus of implementing policies that will benefit the students of the school. There are some policies though that may be regarded as extreme, all in the name of promoting decency.

One major policy directive from the Governor that is worthy of note is the cancellation of what is known as “acceptance fee”. Students and prospective candidates of all levels obviously heaved a sigh of relief at the cheering news. This has indeed made it quite easy for admitted students. This post has been put together to provide you with all the information you need on Kaduna State University (KASU) school fees.
