To date, there are a number of teachers who have not paid their registration fees despite numerous reminders. Given the high number of requests from teachers, the STC has approved a final extension for payments of registration fees for Thursday 24th December, 2020.

You are urged to take note of the following process for paying the prescribed fee(s).

The fees must be paid to the cashier of the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture that will be opened for UPOLU from Tuesday 1st – Thursday 24th December 2020 and forSAVAII from Monday 14th – Friday 18th December 2020. Your payment receipt will be required in order to take a passport photo.
