UWI payment plan

The University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus will not be deregistering any Barbadian student who attends its programmes.

That was the assurance given by Donley Carrington, lecturer in the management department at the campus during a panel discussion entitled Coping With The Cost Of Education at a Barbados Labour Party People’s Assembly last Wednesday night.

Carrington was responding to a statement made by president of the Guild of Students, Damani Parris, that some students will be deregistered if they defaulted on their payments.

Parris said if bursaries and student loans were not cleared by the end of September 30, “I believe it is not untrue to say that every student who has not been able to make the second payment will be deregistered from Cave Hill. That is what generally happens when you default on a payment plan.

“Unless arrangements are made for those students which I expect the university to make over the next few weeks, in this very semester, this campus can descend into disaster.”
