2021 CUT Fee Increase

There has been a number of developments around the issue of student fees at the institutions of higher learning. A number of engagements have been held with different stakeholders (DHET, USAF, etc) in a bid to arrive at the most sustainable solution for both students and universities. Though the matter has not yet been finalized by DHET, the institution has derived the following guidelines in the interim. 

Since 2017 the university has been increasing the fees according to the directives received from DHET.

The 2021 Fee Compact received from DHET indicated tuition fee increase of 4.7% and accommodation fee increase of 6.7%, which were approved by the CUT Council. To ensure that self-funded students meeting the requirement of the missing middle do register, CUT will assist these students to cover the portion of the fee increase which effectively means a 0% fee increase for these students.
