Of these colleges and universitites, it is still unknown which applications for increase of tuition and/or other school fees CHED will approve.

Last month, CHED Chairperson Patricia Licuanan said in a statement that the government agency will demand the institutions to strictly adhere to the rules so that increases will be “transparent, reasonable, and affordable.”

She assured the public that CHED is on alert against institutions that impose unnecessary fees on the students.

Meanwhile, she told the colleges and universities to assess the increases they impose and to spend money wisely.

The National Union of Students of the Philippines estimated that around 400 schools across the country are intending to increase their tuition and/or other school fees.

Licuanan, however, said that this is improbable. For academic year 2014-2015, CHED approved the application of 287 of 345 higher education institutions; and 354 of 451 in academic year 2013-2014, she noted.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
