Almost 200 universities and colleges will be implementing the Free Tuition Fee law starting this school year; parents and students are eagerly looking forward to an expense-free education because even miscellaneous payments are covered by the act.  The government has allotted a P40-billion fund for the first year of the law’s implementation to cover the tuition fee requirements of hundreds of thousands of Filipino students.

What are the important facts that we all need to know about this new law?  Who are qualified to enjoy this privilege?

Here are the five important things we all need to know about the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act:

  1. The free tuition fee applies only to required classes for the semester. This means that a student’s tuition will be free for as long as the subjects he enrolled in are part of the curriculum and are required for him to finish his degree. Reviews, remedial, and enhancement classes are not covered.
  2. The definition of “miscellaneous”. Apart from tuition fee, the law also covers payments for miscellaneous requirements such as the use of libraries, laboratories, computer rooms, IDs, use of gyms and sports clinics, guidance counseling, medical and dental services, and other related activities.
  3. Schools must have programs for students from minority groups. The law covers even, and most especially, disadvantaged students and schools are mandated to craft programs to make it easier for them to avail of the free tuition law. Lumads, Muslims, indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, and students from public high schools and depressed areas are all included in the free tuition fee program and must be accommodated by the said participating schools.
  4. Opt-out Mechanism. Upon enrollment, a student may decide if he will avail of the free tuition fee program or voluntarily bow out of the offer. This is expected of students who have the financial capacity to shoulder his tuition and miscellaneous expenses.  He will be required to submit a notarized waiver and will then be considered as a paying student for that particular semester.  They have the chance to change their decision in the next semesters.
  5. Student Loan Program. Under the Free Tuition Fee Law, students will be given the privilege of an education loan. This shall be implemented in partnership with banks and similar financial institutions and will be discussed in detail in the IRR.

Stay tuned for more updates as the CHED discloses more information on this news.  The IRR is expected to be released on Monday, March 26, 2018.

According to the CHED, the recipients of the free tuition fee privilege shall be required to render services to their respective colleges and universities.  Menial tasks like providing assistance in the library and other similar activities may be required by the school administration from qualified students.  Whatever these tasks are going to be, the schools must make sure that the service does not get in the way of the students’ academic requirements and study time.

A student’s tuition and miscellaneous fees will be waived for as long as:

  1. They pass or meet the admission and retention policies of the institution;
  2. They have no previous undergraduate degree; and
  3. They are not overstaying.

Needless to say, schools will now be more stringent in monitoring their students’ grades to make sure that the privilege is not abused and the objectives of the law are met.  At the end of the day, what we all want is for every Filipino, regardless of economic status, to be provided with quality education and equipped to perform in the corporate or business arena later on.

Good news for parents and state university students!  You no longer need to pay tuition and miscellaneous fees this coming school year (June 2018)!

According to the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), state universities and colleges are covered by the P8-billion free tuition and miscellaneous fees, following the release of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act of 2017.  CHED will visit the different state universities and colleges in the country to announce the good news.

Who will get free tuition under the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act of 2017?

According to the CHED, all students who are enrolled or will enroll in State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), accredited Local Universities and Colleges (LUCs), and publicly-run Technical-Vocational Institutions (TVIs) are entitled to free tuition and other fees as long as they fulfill the admission and retention standards of the school.

How does a student qualify for the free tuition fee?

The student must have taken and successfully passed the admission and retention requirements of the school.  He or she must not have an undergraduate degree and not considered as an overstaying student (or has stayed beyond the prescribed school years of his chosen course).

How will the school determine qualified students?

A student’s family income is no longer considered as a basis for his qualification to the free tuition fee program.  The government’s thrust is to not discriminate the scholars based on their parents’ income or capacity to earn.  As far as the administration is concerned, everyone must be entitled to free education for as long as they pass the qualifying examinations.  The income requirement shall be applied only to determine who among the scholars must be given additional financial support; as it is, all students must be able to go to school without worrying about his or her tuition fee.

How much stipend can scholars expect from the government?

For state university students, a budget of Php 40,000 per school year (10 months) will be allocated per student.  This will be given on a staggered basis until the 10-month school year is completed.  If the student is studying in a private university, the scholar will be given Php 60,000.  The budget for private university students is reserved for the underprivileged but qualified to study in the institution based on his exams.

So there you have it!  This school year should be less stressful for most parents and students as all they need to do now is pass the qualifying exams in order to study for free.  Let us take advantage of this privilege afforded to us by the government by studying harder, learning as much as we can from our institutions, and graduate with flying colors.

This is something we definitely will be looking forward to!  Tell us what you think of this news.

The bill granting free tuition fees for students of state universities and colleges was signed into law and announced to the public last Friday, August 4, 2017.  It is now known as Republic Act 10931 or the “Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act”.

To help the public better appreciate this good news, we are sharing the following summary to identify who are eligible for free tuition and other fees of` state universities and colleges (SUCs), local universities and colleges (LUCs), and technical-vocational institutions (TVIs).

Who are qualified?

  1. Students in SUCs and LUCs who passed the entrance examination and other admission and retention requirements.
  2. Students in state-run technical-vocational institutions (TVIs) under the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).  TVIs provide non-degree programs aimed at preparing technicians, paraprofessionals, and other categories of middle-level workers.

Who are not qualified?

  1. In SUCs and LUCs:
    • Students who have already attained a bachelor’s degree or comparable undergraduate degree from any higher education institution whether public or private.
    • Students who fail to comply with the admission and retention policies of the SUC or LUC.
    • Students who fail to complete their bachelor’s degree or comparable undergraduate degree within a year after the period prescribed in their program.
  2. In state-run TVIs:
    • Students who have obtained a bachelor’s degree as well as those who have received a certificate or diploma for a technical-vocational course equivalent to at least National Certificate III and above.
    • Students who fail in any course enrolled in during the course of the program.

Can private school enrollees avail of the free tuition fee program?

Yes, they can.

Section 7 of the RA states that a tertiary education subsidy shall be established for Filipino students enrolled or intend to enroll in an undergraduate post-secondary program of an SUC, LUC, private higher education institution, and private and state-run technical-vocational institution.

What are covered by the subsidy?

  1. Tuition and other school fees in private HEIs and private or LGU-operated TVIs which shall be equivalent to the tuition and other school fees of the nearest SUC or state-run TVI in their respective areas.
  2. Allowance for books, supplies, transportation, and miscellaneous personal expenses, including a reasonable allowance for documented rental or purchase of personal computer or laptop and other education-related expenses.
  3. Allowance for room and board costs incurred by the student.  Allowance for expenses related to the disability of a disabled student.
  4. One-time cost of obtaining the first professional credentials or qualifications.

While Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, it is also considered as the season when traffic is at its worst in Metro Manila.  The ‘ber’ months not only usher in cooler weather, it also seem to double the number of commuters traversing the whole stretch of Edsa looking for great deals at malls and bazaars, rushing to company Christmas parties and family reunions, and driving kids off to their school programs and recitals.  If traffic is bad on a regular working day, it hits a different level of madness when the Christmas season rolls in.

But, there’s hope.

On September 18, 2016, a Senator proposed to have this year’s school Christmas break be declared earlier than usual to help decongest the city’s main thoroughfares from traffic volume.  If kids are kept home during the first weeks of December, school buses and private cars would not need to convey students to schools, thereby, easing traffic in critical areas like the University Belt, Espana, Edsa, and Katipunan.  This will also help shorten the lines of commuters waiting for UV Express vans and buses at pick up points especially during weeknight rush hours.

Parents need not worry about their children missing too many days from school because these can be compensated by extending school days later on.  The government also admonished faculties from giving children too many assignments and projects to work on during the holidays.  The extended break must be spent by the students with their families instead of stressing over schoolwork.

The Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education and the Department of Transportation shall be requested by the Senate to discuss this proposal.

As a parent, teacher, or school administrator, do you agree with this proposal from the government?

School Year 2016 to 2017_1

The Department of Education announced the official start and end dates of school year 2016 to 2017.  Classes will begin on June 13, 2016 and will end on April 7, 2017.  Private schools may not necessarily follow the dates however, they are not allowed to start classes earlier than the first Monday of June or later than the last day of August.

Enrollment is ongoing in public and private schools.  One of the basic requirements, especially for new incoming students and those transferring to a different school, is the child’s PSA birth certificate.  For convenience, parents may have their children’s birth certificates delivered by calling the hotline (02) 737-1111 or by visiting the website psahelpline.com.  The certificates will be delivered to your preferred address in 2 to 3 days.

For everyone’s reference, we are sharing the following school calendar lifted from the http://www.gov.ph website.  Please share to parents and students.

Red Ribbon.jpg

If you have plans of working abroad or will be working abroad soon, it is likely that your employers or the embassy of the country you will be working at will require for DFA-certified copies of your school credentials.  This is more commonly referred to as “Red Ribbon” because authenticated documents bear a red ribbon and the dry seal of the DFA.  The most common documents that need authentication are your Transcript of Records, Diploma, Certificate of Graduation, Form 137, and even your PSA Birth Certificate and Marriage Certificate (when applicable).

How does one get his or her school credentials authenticated by the DFA?

The entire process begins with the Authentication and Verification of your school, CHED, TESDA, and or the DepEd (whichever is applicable to the student).  Any of these agencies (depending on the school you graduated from – public or private) must issue you a CAV or a Certificate of Authentication and Verification.  This shall mean that the documents you are submitting for authentication by the DFA are certified authentic and verified by the above agencies and by your school.  The CAV shall then form part of the documents to be submitted to DFA for authentication.

Read on for the step-by-step process in authenticating school credentials from a private school.  Please note that public school and state university graduates may inquire at their Registrar’s office regarding document authentication.

How to Red Ribbon College Diplomas and Transcript of Records (TOR)

  1. Prepare three (3) copies of your TOR and diploma.
  2. Submit the copies to your college or university’s Registrar’s Office; they will mark these as certified true copies.
  3. Request for an Authentication Registration Form from your Registrar; fill out the form and other documents the Registrar will give you. Make sure all your entries are written legibly.
  4. Pay the necessary fees; this will depend on your school. After paying, claim the certified true copies of your TOR and diploma.
  5. Proceed to the CHED office in your area and advise that you need your school documents authenticated by the DFA. Submit the copies certified by your Registrar, fill out the application forms, and pay the necessary fees.
  6. You will be given a stub containing the date when may collect your Red Ribboned papers at the DFA.

How to Red Ribbon High School Diploma and Form 137

  1. Prepare two (2) photocopies of your high school diploma; proceed to your school’s Registrar’s Office and advise that you need your diploma to be certified as true copies.
  2. Request for an Authentication Registration Form from your Registrar; fill out the form and other documents the Registrar will give you. Make sure all your entries are written legibly.
  3. Have the following ready as supporting documents for the authentication of your high school diploma and Form 137:
    • Form 137 (student’s permanent records)
    • Certificate of Graduation
    • Diploma
    • Special Order Number (if student graduated from a private school)
    • 2 pcs Passport size photos
  4. When you are sure that you have completed all documentary requirements, proceed to the DepEd office and file the documents you need authenticated by DFA.  You will be given a stub so you would know when you may claim your Red Ribboned documents at the DFA.

Authentication Fees:

  1. Php 100 / document (4 days processing)
  2. Php 200 / document (1 day processing)

Important Reminders:

  1. Unclaimed authenticated documents will be disposed of by the DFA after three (3) months from date of release.
  2. DFA San Fernando Pampanga (Office of Consular Affairs – Authentication Division) now accepts authentication for the following documents:
    • NBI Clearance
    • PSA-issued documents in security paper including CENOMAR
    • Barangay Certification w/ Mayor Certification (issued within Regions 1, 2, 3, and CAR only).
    • Police Clearance (issued within Regions 1, 2, 3, and CAR only).
    • Affidavits of Employment, Trainings/Seminars,  and Baptism/Confirmation w/ Regional Trial Court (RTC) Certification (issued within Regions 1, 2, 3, and CAR only).

    • Medical Certifications authenticated by DOH.
    • PRC Documents (issued within the NCR, Regions I, II, III and CAR only).

    • School Records (TOR, Diploma, Form 137, etc) w/ CHED, TESDA, or DEP-Ed Certificate of Authentication and Verification (CAV) (issued within the NCR, Regions I, II, III and CAR only).

    • Valid ID
    • Signed authorization or SPA from the applicant
    • Photocopy of applicant’s ID bearing the applicant’s signature
    • Photocopy of authorized representative’s ID

  5. Liaison Officers of Recruitment Agencies are not allowed to transact authentication services at any Regional Consular Office (RCO).
