University tuition fees increase nearly Tgs 2 million

At this time when only a few days remain until the new academic year begins, usual matters regarding university tuition arise.
Loans of the Academic State Fund are disbursed to those who are halforphan, from poor families, and for people who served in the contractmilitary service. Also, non-refundable assistance is given to those who are fully orphaned, whose mother and father are disabled and who took the first three places in international Olympiads, as well as students who are studying under intergovernmental agreement. In addition, one child of state workers is encouraged to study under non-refundable assistance. By August 20, the number of students who receive academic loans and nonrefundable assistance becomes clear. In general, 6,200 students on average are annually involved in loans and non-refundable assistance.
M. Baasanjav, head of the Professional Educational Department at Ministry of

Education, Culture and Sciences (MECS), said, “MECS and Academic State Fund jointly worked out a new regulation and submitted it to Parliament for discussion. It is expected to be discussed on September 16. I can give more information after a decision is released”. Until the parliamentary decision is released, students who meet the requirements of State funding are now being registered under previous regulations According to the revised regulation, students who meet the requirements for receiving loans and non-refundable assistance will be involved in State funding depending on their grade point average. By doing so, it is believed that students will study with more effort and it will create competition which will eliminate the issue of unqualified graduates. State-run universities have raised their tuition fees as earlier predicted. The University of Humanity raised its tuition fee from Tgs 1,200,000 to Tgs 1,900.000, the National University of Mongolia raised from Tgs 840,000 to Tgs 1,070,000 while the Sciences and Technical University raised its tuition fee from Tgs 920,000 to Tgs 1,500,000. Also the tuition fees of the universities and colleges are different by depending on faculties. For instance, a student of social sciences will pay Tgs 920,000 whilst a student of engineering is to pay between Tgs 1,200,000 and Tgs 1,500,000.
The increase in tuition fees of universities is causing people distress.
With a purpose to resolve this troubled issue, the government discussed this issue at its cabinet meeting on August 18 and decided to issue a resolution on actions.
According to the resolution, coordination is to be made that tuition fees for September to December of 2010 will be paid by students themselves and the remaining part of their tuition from January, 2011 will be paid from the Human Development Fund
