I hope you and your family is keeping safe and are healthy during the COVID19 Pandemic. As you all know, the college has been closed since March 18th as a result of the lockdown announced by the central government of India. Inspite of the sudden closure of the college, we have taken efforts to ensure the continuity of learning through various online and digital platforms. Our faculty have been working tirelessly in the last 2 months to complete the syllabus through online classes and get them ready for the final examinations. Currently, the syllabus for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year students is almost completed and will soon complete the same for 1st year students. We’re waiting to hear from JNTU hyderabad about the schedule for the theory and practical examinations and also for the resuming for the next academic year.
While our faculty have been working to ensure the lockdown doesn’t affect your academics, we have been facing many financial issues. As you all might know, the government is responsible to reimburse the fee for most our students as part of their efforts to support students in their engineering education. However, the government is unable to reimburse the fee for the last 1.5 years as the lockdown has also impacted their revenue collection. Without receiving any money from the government, the college is currently in a helpless situation as we’re unable to pay the salaries of our faculty since the last few months. This places tremendous pressure on the college management and thereby on the faculty as we’re all unable to ensure the well being of our families.
In these testing times, we’re reaching out you all as last resort and requesting you to pay the tuition fee for 2020 – 2021 academic year (either fully or partially) in advance. With this support from you, we will be able to generate revenue and pay few months of salaries to our faculty who have been doing a great job to continue your education. Students who are willing to pay the fee in advance would be provided with a discounted fee as a reciprocation for their timely support in helping the college management. Please note that the sustainability of the college is at risk without your support, as the college will be forced to shutdown completely without the services of our faculty. We request all parents to sincerely consider this request and evaluate the possibility of paying the tuition fee in advance.
The discounted rates for the tuition fee are mentioned below. If students are paying part of the fee, the discounted amount would be deducted from the remaining tuition fee.
May 31st – 20% discount on tuition fee being paid
June 15th – 10% discount on tuition fee being paid
June 30th – 5% discount on tuition fee being paid
All students who pay the fee in advance will also be offered free access to online courses on Coursera – which is an online platform with more than 3500+ courses from reputed foreign universities. The average cost for each course is Rs. 3000 and we will be offering all these courses for free. These courses will help you gain the knowledge and skills and keep up with emerging technologies in engineering.
Our staff will soon be calling you to know if you’re willing to pay the tuition fee in advance. They will provide you with the details on how to make the payment online and other necessary information. We sincerely thank all the parents who are willing to help us in this tough situation. With your support, we promise to continue providing you with quality engineering education so that you graduate with high paying jobs.
