LOANS AND FEES

 

A student intending to join Muslim University of Morogoro will have to check about how much it will cost to study for a degree (see fee structure below) and also consider what financial support will be available. Needy Tanzanian students who secure admission to pursue academic programmes may seek loans from the Higher Education Students’ Loan Board (HESLB) in Tanzania to meet at least part of the costs of their education. Loan application forms can be collected at the Boards Offices located at Tirdo Complex, Kimweri Road, Msasani, P.O. Box 76068, DAR ES SALAAM, at the nearest Post Office, or in some cases, at the office of the Deans of Students of all Higher Education Institutions in Tanzania. Guidelines and criteria for granting student loans can be obtained from HESLB website.

It is important that candidates apply for loans at the same time they seek admission to University.

On the day of reporting for registration at the University, students shall be required to pay all the fees to the University at CRDB Bank account No: 0 1 J 1 0 1 3 3 8 0 6 0 1 and submit the receipts to the Bursar.  All candidates selected for admission shall be required to pay at the University an Administration fee (TS 35,000/- for Tanzanians, and US $ 30 for foreign nationals).

Payment of the tuition fees should be made also at the time of registration. Normally, a student will not be allowed to attend classes at the University unless the required fees have been paid. Failure to pay the fees within the specified period will result in the withdrawal of registration. Fees paid will not be refunded in case a student withdraws or leaves the University.

Foreign students are expected to pay their fees in convertible currency. They are also required to comply with immigration regulations. Besides entry visa acquired from the country of departure, they are also required to apply for residence permit soon after their arrival in Tanzania.

At the beginning of the academic year, all students will be required to produce a reliable evidence of sponsorship; otherwise they will be expected to pay full tuition and other University fees for the full year by the beginning of the Semester before they can be permitted to use the University facilities.
