Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
1. My son needs help with classes. What resources are available?
There are many resources at the university to help students who are struggling academically. Baze has several learning labs to help strengthen a student’s competency in math, writing, computer science and research. Also, most classes have a faculty intern assigned to the faculty and course who provides additional support for regular classroom sessions. The first step is for your son to inform his/her faculty and faculty intern so that their situation can be assessed appropriately and if the student still has issues, s/he can go to his/her academic advisor for further assistance.
2. I want to send my son to Baze but I cannot afford to pay the full tuition fees. Do you offer financial aid?
Yes! Since we began operations, Baze has distributed millions of Naira in financial aid to brilliant but needy students. You can learn more about financial aid.
3. My son seems very stressed out and emotionally unstable. What should I do?
In the transition from high school to university, most students experience some stress in adjusting. Baze has several counseling structures in place to help students settle into university. However, if you believe your son’s behavior is not normal or seems unstable, please contact the Dean of Student Affairs. The Dean will arrange to meet with your child and help you determine necessary steps to be taken.
4. How do I find out how my son is doing academically?
All students have secure access to their records electronically - even from home. This means you can ask them to show you their grades at any point.
5. My son will be late returning to school at the beginning of the semester. What are the implications?
All students have up to seven days at the start of each semester within which to register for classes and report to campus. If the student is unable to do this without any adequate medical reason or special cases, they will be required to defer their studies and resume school in a subsequent semester.
6. I am having problems paying my son's school fees. How can the university help me?
Baze offers flexible payment plans for fees. With our lowest payment option, you can spread your semester tuition over the three months of semester. If you are still having problems with payments, please write a letter explaining your situation and the Accounts and Finance Department and they will help you explore appropriate solutions.
7. If my child was dismissed from the university, can he/she apply to be re-admitted?
Students who are dismissed must make a formal reapplication to the University. These requests must be submitted to the Admissions Office three weeks before the start of the next semester. A student who has been dismissed must not expect to be readmitted.
