Ian Sangster: U.B. Students Need to Meet its Financial Obligations

Ian Sangster

There are over five thousand students enrolled at the four U.B. campuses across the country. Each student pays roughly about one thousand dollars for the associate’s programme and two thousand two hundred dollars for the bachelor’s programme per semester at the institution. The outstanding balance is for only the first semester of the 2019 school year. But Ian Sangster says that the payments must be collected for the institution to meet its obligations.


Ian Sangster, Acting Finance Director, University of Belize

“For us to run the university there are needs that we have that we have to also help our students to understand as well the responsibility in terms of meeting those financial obligations that they have. So this is just a normal part of what we do. We are not the only one; other schools as well would have their different methods through which they would make their collections and so on.  We are looking at students who are tiered in terms of no payments to their account and those were the initial ones that we tried to reach. The second list really is just a review of what happens after because during this period of time, there are students who may be coming in to make good on their payments and so for those students who are doing that, we will have to eliminate from anything that occurs next week. That second list is a review of where we are at in terms of accounts that are outstanding.”


According to Sangster, a second list of students whose accounts have not been settled will be published on November twelfth, 2019.
