You can also tell your Course mate to act as a course rep and inform your parents that you are the only student left delaying the whole class. I think your Parents should be convinced to drop something in your bank account.
Excursion is also one the legit ways to collect money from your parents without billing them directly. Either You tell them you will be going for a field trip or excursion and also add to it that the money is 10k/20k depending on the amount you really need at that moment.

This Method of collecting money from one’s parents is delicate and only recommended to be applied on stingy parents. Pick your phone and call your parent that you had an accident and that you just left the hospital days back and also that your friend paid the bills of 10k from there, handover the phone to someone who will act like the friend you owe, after that inform your parent to send you money so that you can refund your friend that paid your hospital bills.

To make your lie look genuine, tell them that two students were killed by the armed robbers, but they spare you because you didn’t argue with them. I collected 80k last year with this trick, I lied that armed robber invaded my hostel and took away my laptop, phones and killed two students in the hostel to make it look real. My mom rushed to church to do thanksgiving and the following week I got alert of 80k to get a new phone and laptop, I used the money to change my wardrobe.
Another method of collecting money is to call home that you are sick, tell them you need money to buy drugs. Parents don’t like hearing that their wards are sick, they will be eager to send you money for treatment. If they ask you to come home tell them, you can’t that they should send money first to treat yourself.
9. SPIRITUAL LIES.
This doesn’t work for everyone, but you can try your luck by telling your parents that Your pastor/Alfa gave you a revelation which need urgent attention that you must do. Notify them of the amount you need which might be 5k or 10k depending on the amount you need at that very moment. You can collect money from your parents using this Method depending on your family background. These lies don’t work for devoted Christians and pure Muslim parents though.
