Executive Director of Finance, Kolinio Boila, says they empathize with the financial hardship faced by new and existing students and their families as a result of COVID-19 and the recent natural disasters.
Boila adds that in recognition of these external circumstances, and the need to continue to shape the future of Pacific students, the flexible fee payment arrangements being offered will provide students relief to continue and complete their studies.
He says for this year, students will not have to pay late payment fees as this has been waived adding that instalment payment arrangements are conditionally available to all registered students at the University.
