Higher education in Jordan can be quite expensive, which is why several Jordanian social media activists were not thrilled to learn that Mutah University, in the Karak Governorate, has increased its tuition fees.
The activists posted what they claimed were official papers proving that the university will be charging most of its students more money starting next semester.
The papers included a list of the specialties that will fall under the new payment rules.
However, the university’s media spokesperson, Waleed al-Rawadieh, denied the rumors, telling Roya that “people should be careful with the news they spread; they must take the news from its official source before it goes out to the public.”
Rawadieh confirmed that the university will not increase its tuition fees at this time.
There are 10 public and 20 private universities in Jordan, with nearly 236,000 Jordanian students and about 40,000 non-Jordanian students and 107 nationalities enrolled at those establishments.
