About Financial aid

Financial Aid Office (FAO) strives to render excellent, efficient, professional and a friendly service to students. FAO offers students an opportunity to access tertiary education, though not all students qualify for financial aid assistance as it is granted on the basis of certain financial and academic criteria. Students who are needy and have academic potential are urged apply for financial aid.
