From now, students of United International University (UIU), one of the leading private universities of the country, will be able to pay their admission, tuition and other academic fees through bKash.
With this, bKash makes the fee payment of 600 educational institutions convenient, secured, time-saving, and cost-efficient said a press release.
High officials of both the organisations launched the service at the university campus with an agreement signing ceremony on Monday.
Dr Chowdhury Mofizur Rahman, Vice Chancellor and Dr Mir Obaidur Rahman, Treasurer of UIU, Ali Ahmmed, Head of Strategy and Business Development and Md Mahbubur Rahman Chowdhury, Deputy General Manager, Education Payment of bKash were present there among others.
This service will facilitate 10 thousand students of UIU to pay all types of academic fees 24/7 from anywhere.
Especially during the pandemic, this service will help students and their guardians to avoid standing in long queues at the bank counters and pay academic fees safely without any hassle. At the same time, this enables cost minimization and better management of fees for the university authority.
To pay academic fees of UIU, students need to visit the student website of the university (https://ucam.uiu.ac.bd/), which will redirect to bKash payment gateway.
In next step, they should enter bKash account number, amount of fee, One Time Password (OTP) and bKash PIN to complete the payment. They can also have digital receipts after successful payment. However, a convenience charge is applicable for paying the fees.
