Yesterday, it has been reported that all State Universities and Colleges in the Philippines will offer education to Filipino nationals for absolutely free starting next year. This, after the Congress and Senate moved to include the 8 Billion pesos additional budget for the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
This only means that all students studying at universities and colleges listed below will no longer have to pay for any tuition fee. Yes, Filipinos can now get their degree at no-cost at all!
Not sure if you are enrolled to an SUC? Check if your school is on the list. Will keep you posted. Subscribed.
UPDATE: Here’s a Tweet from Senator Sonny Angara confirming this news. Unless President Duterte decides to veto the 2017 GAA/ National Budget which is very unlikely, this news is as good as approved. Pirma nalang po ang kulang mga bes! 🙂
