The charge for my UG transcript is exorbitant

Dear Editor,

I recently enquired for the cost of sending my UG transcript to New York and was totally astounded and annoyed by the mention of US$500. Why this outrageous amount? You are just paying for something that belongs to you and if it will take some time and effort for UG personnel to get your files, do some copying and signing then I am more than willing to pay for such a service. But charging US $500. for a few hours of work is tantamount to ripping me off. No other country in the Caribbean charges anything near to this outrageous amount.

Imagine the average government worker gets about $30,000 approximately US$150 a month and the government is charging approximately three months government salary just for a transcript, something that belongs to you. What kind of nonsense is this?

Yours faithfully,

C. Rodriguez
