COVID-19 SITUATION UPDATE DIPLOMA PROGRAMS
It is still clear now that regular teaching and classes will not begin until September. As we go through unprecedented and difficult period, we shall continue working and learning from our homes. This requires readjustment and re-evaluation in a number of areas.
We have suspended 5% annual fee increase in monthly tuition fees. Tuition fee from August 2020 has been rounded off at PKR 7500 per month which is only 2% increase. However, it is also decided to given 20% concession in monthly fees for August and September 2020. The concession will continue in further months if on campus classes do not begin. So, fee for August and September shall be PKR 6000 per month. Also note that this concession will not be offered unless your dues till July 2020 are clear.
To get through this period and ensure financial viability of the school, we also need you to honour tuition fee commitments. The school must continue to meet its monthly financial obligations through this period and with salaries, utilities and other fixed expenses, there will be challenging times ahead.
We will continue to work hard to make online learning experience as fruitful as it can be. However, online learning has its limitations and we can only make our best efforts to make the best out of it. From August we will try to make online sessions session more organized and convenient.
