Ashesi appreciates your commitment to giving your child a quality education by sending them to our institution. Making the transition from high school to university life can be overwhelming. However, with your support we can work together to make sure your child has an amazing experience at Ashesi. Because of the critical role you have in partnering with us to make sure your child is successful, we have created this list of frequently asked questions to keep you abreast of the latest news regarding your child.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)


  1. My ward needs help with classes. What resources are available?
    There are many resources at the university to help students who are struggling academically. Ashesi 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 course who provides additional support for regular classroom sessions. The first step is for your ward to inform his academic advisor so their situation can be assessed appropriately to determine what help they need the most.

  2. I want to send my ward to Ashesi but I cannot afford to pay the full tuition fees. Do you offer financial aid?
    Yes! Since we began operations, Ashesi has distributed millions of dollars in financial aid to brilliant but needy students. You can learn more about financial aid here

  3. My ward 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. Ashesi has several counseling structures in place to help students settle into university. However, if you believe your ward’s behavior is not normal or seems unstable, please contact the Dean of Student and Community Affairs. The Dean will arrange to meet with your child and help you determine necessary steps to be taken.

  4. Can my ward earn money by working on campus?
    Ashesi has work study programs that provide students with the opportunity to earn money from working with university departments. Work study opportunities are open each year for students to apply. Contact the Career Services Center for more information.

  5. How do I find out how my ward is doing academically?
    Although Ashesi does not send academic reports to parents, you can contact the Assistant Registrar at any time to get an unofficial report on your wards academic progress. All students also have secure access to their records electronically - even from home. This means you can ask them to show you their grades at any point.

  6. My ward will be late returning to school at the beginning of the semester. What are the implications?
    All students have up to two weeks 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, they will be required to withdraw and resume school in a subsequent semester. If a student has adequate medical reason, it is still advised that they withdraw from the semester or the student will have to be assigned an "Incomplete" grade for any academic work he/she has missed. If a student receives an "Incomplete" grade, he/she has to complete any pending work within the first week of the following semester in accordance with academic rules.

  7. I am having problems paying my ward's school fees. How can the university help me?
    Ashesi offers flexible payment plans for fees. With our lowest payment option, you can spread your semester tuition over the four months of semester. If you are still having problems with payments, please write a letter explaining your situation and the Registrar will help you explore appropriate solutions.

  8. My ward is on academic probation. What does this mean?
    This means your ward is close to being suspended from the university because of poor academic performance and needs to improve. Students will be placed on academic probation at the end of any semester if their cumulative grade-point average (g.p.a.) is less than 2.0 (C average). Students will be subject to academic dismissal from Ashesi if (1) they fail to make normal degree progress, (2) their grade-point averages fall below 1.5 for any one semester, or (3) they have not achieved a cumulative g.p.a. of 2.0 (C average) after a semester on probation.

  9. If my child was suspended or dismissed from the university, can he/she apply to be re-admitted?
    Students who are suspended must make a formal written request to re-enter Ashesi at the end of the suspension period. These requests must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar six weeks before the date of registration.

    Requests for readmission must be submitted in writing to the Admissions office after at least one year has elapsed from the date of the dismissal. A new admission application must be completed in addition to a letter of recommendation from a full-time member of Ashesi faculty (other information may be required). A student who has been dismissed must not expect to be readmitted. Under unusual circumstances, the Admissions Committee may agree to consider a student for readmission.
