Higher Education Commission to Formulate Fee Refund Policy

Islamabad: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) will formulate a fee refund policy for all public sector universities. This was decided in the Commission’s 26th meeting held on Thursday after the issue was raised by Dr. Javaid R. Laghari, Chairperson HEC.

The Islamabad High Court recently declared the non-refund policy of all educational institutions as illegal and directed HEC to formulate a policy to safeguard the students’ interests.

The Higher Education Commission has therefore begun work on a mechanism to protect students from unnecessary difficulties. HEC will also work on formulating a consolidating a uniform admission test for students so that they do not have to appear for multiple entrance tests.
