by Ofelia C. Empian

Seven higher educational institutions in the Cordillera will increase their tuition and other fees this coming school year 2017-2018.

The Commission on Higher Education-Cordillera has announced that  Saint Louis Bulanao in Kalinga, Divine Word College in Abra, STI College Baguio, Cordillera Career and Development College, University of the Cordilleras, Saint Louis University Baguio, and Baguio Central University will increase their tuition and other school fees this school year.

Those that were approved by CHED’s Commission en Banc to increase their fees are Divine Word College-Bangued with 14 percent increase, Saint Louis College of Bulanao with 10 percent hike, and STI College Baguio with five percent increase. These schools will increase tuition and other school fees for all levels and program offerings in the incoming school year.

These Cordillera schools are part of the 268 private universities and colleges nationwide that were approved by the CHED to increase their tuition and other school fees for 2017-2018.

Of these higher education institutions, 262 will hike only their tuitions by an average of 6.96 percent or P86.68 per unit.

CCDC, UC, SLU, and BCU will increase their tuition and other fees for incoming freshmen only across all program offerings. These schools need not go through the CHED en banc for approval since their increase in will only affect freshmen students.

Patricio Dinamling, education supervisor of CHED, said the agency approves the increase in tuition and other school fees of public or private colleges and universities as long as they follow the guidelines set by the commission.

He said the schools noted that the fee increase will be used for the improvement of school facilities and equipment and salaries and wages of schoolteachers.
