UNIOSUN Rejects Under 16 Admitted Students, Offers To Refund Fees

The management of Osun State University, Osogbo, had directed all newly admitted students yet to reach the age of 16 as of the time the admission was given to them to either defer the offer, or demand refund of school fees.

According to findings by PUNCH, it had been revealed that over 100 students that had initially been offered admission by the institution for 2020/2021 academic session were told to defer the offer or take back already paid school fees because they were below 16 years.

A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the university, Ademola Adesoji, on Tuesday said the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Labode Popoola, said the institution would not compromise its non-admission policy for underage students.
