American University in Cairo declared that the study at the university in New Cairo will resume next Wednesday after an agreement was reached with student demonstrators.
The university's Facebook account emphasized that negotiations between the university administration and students resulted in approval to reduce the increase in student expenses to 2.3% rather than 7%.
Dr. Amr Salama, the Advisor to the Minister of Higher Education, said during a press conference held by the university in the presence of President of the university Lisa Anderson on Monday that the study will resume on Wednesday in the university's building in new Cairo as reported by the Middle East News Agency.
Salama pointed out that they responded to the six main demands of the students, which include the abolition of the Disciplinary Board that was formed to punish the students involved in the recent events at the university. And instead form a fact-finding committee to report on the events that have been happening and hold whoever wronged accountable whether from the students or the university administration.
He added that it was "decided to form an advisory committee to the President of the University involving students, parents' council and members of the faculty and staff. It was agreed on the participation of students in discussions for the preparation of university budget, and agreed to change the subjects' registration system that was really hard for the students".
Hundreds of students began protesting days before against the increase of tuition fees by about 7%. The university responded that this increase was already announced and included in the annual budget, therefore cannot be changed as it includes operational expenses of the university and the salaries of employees. However, they said they can negotiate next year's budget.
The American University in Cairo suspended study of all programs because of what they described as the threat posed by the continued closure of the gates by student protestors on students and facilities.
