The Management of Lagos State University, Ojo, has put in place a policy to guarantee 50 per cent refund of school fees to students with a Cumulative Grade Point Average of 4.50 in every session.
The Vice Chancellor of LASU, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, gave this assurance on Monday during the matriculation ceremony of the 2020/2021 students.

She said, “We are committed to excellence and determined to emerge as the best university in the West Africa region.
“Our students’ welfare is top on our priorities as we will ensure that the learning environment remains conducive for learning.
“My dear matriculating students, please note that the distance between matriculation and convocation ceremonies is quite wide and yet so close, it is important that the journey ends successfully.’’
Olatunji-Bello advised the matriculating students to be regular in attendance at lectures, carry out all assignments shun deviant behaviours and avoid indecent dressing among others.
“The university has zero tolerance for cultism, examination malpractices, corruption and hooliganism.
