GIMPA School Fees Cost Structure

Getting admission into the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration is a big feat; however, it is just the first step. A prospective student only becomes a student when s/he must have fulfilled some stipulated requirements. One of the requirements is paying your school fees. In fact, it is advisable for applicants to know the total cost required to study at the institution before applying; nothing hurts more than putting your all into an application, getting a placement but not being able to move forward because of lack of funds.

The fees required from students vary based on their school, course, and level of study (Bachelor’s, Degree, Ph.D., Diploma, or Certificate or Short Courses). Some schools, like the Faculty of Law, even charge extra fees, like health insurance fees and payment for health facilities, in addition to their school fees. The fees may also vary for Ghanaian and international students; Ghanaian students pay their fees in Ghana Cedi while international students pay in US Dollars.

The fees are usually adjusted yearly by the university. Prospective, fresh, and returning students are advised to always have a look at the university’s website for the updated school fees schedule. The school fees are usually paid per semester. Fresh students in undergraduate programs are to pay 100% of their first semester fees before the commencement of registration and 60% of second-semester fees before registration and the remaining 40% before the end of the second-semester examination. However, there may be considerations for students to pay in installments. Graduate students also have payment plans set out for them.

For advice on school fee payment plans, students are encouraged to contact the school.
