Examination & Graduation Fees Removed for Caymanian Students

The Ministry of Education (MoE) announces the removal of examination and graduation fees for Caymanian students enrolled in government schools.

The new measures, which take effect on 1 January 2023, are consistent with the Broad Outcome of improving education to promote lifelong learning and greater economic mobility for Caymanians set out in the Cayman Islands Government’s (CIG) 2022-2024 Strategic Policy Statement.

“The removal of these two financial burdens will enable us to provide greater support for our Caymanian students; facilitate a more inclusive graduation experience and provide a clearer pathway for students to pursue post-secondary education or gainful employment,” said Minister for Education, Hon. Juliana O’Connor-Connolly.

“ As we take these final steps towards free education, we can further ensure that each Caymanian student has an equal opportunity to advance and to realise their full potential,” the Education Minister continued.

An estimated 454 compulsory-age students will benefit from the removal of examination and graduation fees annually.
