Question posted in the General Law category relating to Western Cape
I registered late for a programme at a South African university.
I then decided to de-register from the programme after 3 weeks.
The Univeristy rules meant I could no longer get a full rebate, as the final date had passed.
I however had less time than other students to decide to deregister, because I registered so late.
I then decided to ask the dean for a concession for a full rebate. This was granted, and I was then told by the department that I could go and de-register and that I would only owe a R500 cancellation fee. I then deregistered.
I am however now being told by tee univeristy fees department that they do not accept the departments concession, and that I owe a 50% rebate.
Message from the Lawyer
I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment, even if it is R150 or R200.
I think that you will need to find out from the Dean of your department whether he has the power to make decisions on the payment of cancellation fees, because it might have been outside of his powers.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required deposit, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make deposits for their questions - they get serviced first!
