The University of Zambia (UNZA) has allowed the de-registered students who missed the exams to take differed exams for which a penalty of K50, 000 per course will be levied.
This follows a meeting held on Wednesday between the UNZA Management and the affected de-registered students.
The meeting resolved that students will be allowed to sit for the First semester examinations without settling the outstanding fees but will be required to pay a flat surcharge fee of K200, 000.
They said the students who will fail to pay the penalty fees will have their results withheld and will not be allowed to register for the second semester of 2009.
Communications Manager, Stan Chewe said that the institution has in the past faced similar problems brought about by the failure by some students to honor their obligation to pay examination fees in installments.
He said the institution will continue accepting payments in installments and that the situation has normalized, as students have started collecting slips in readiness to sit for their exams.
