The revised fee collection policy for private medical colleges in Punjab was approved at an important meeting of the Provincial Admission Committee (PAC).
Ali Jan, Secretary of the Specialised Healthcare and Medical Education Department, presided over the meeting at the University of Health Sciences.
After the new policy is approved, medical students who are admitted to their first choice college will be required to pay the entire tuition fee directly to the institution.
Students will no longer be required to deposit fees at the University of Health Sciences (UHS). The PAC’s decision is intended to make the payment process easier for students.
Furthermore, candidates who do not choose an upgrade after their initial admission will be required to pay the entire fee directly to their respective colleges.
Private medical institutes, on the other hand, that intend to collect the full fee from students must comply with a new affidavit. They will follow UHS policies regarding fee refunds and transfers.
Colleges will be required by law to refund all fees to students who choose to leave their seat or are transferred to another institution within a week and without deductions.
Institutes that are found to be in violation of these policies will face severe consequences, including legal action.
