AT LEAST 56 private higher education institutions (HEIs) in the country are set to increase their tuition and other school fees for Academic Year (AY) 2021-2022.

The Commission on Higher Education (Ched) approved their application for tuition increase through a memorandum issued last December 6, 2021 to directors and officers-in-charge of Ched regional offices and presidents or heads of the 56 HEIs.

Ched Chairman Prospero De Vera said the memorandum was in accordance with the pertinent provisions of Ched Memorandum Order 03, s. 2013 and memorandum from the Office of the Chairperson dated March 24, 2021 regarding guidelines on the recalibration of miscellaneous and other school fees during the Covid-19 pandemic.

It was also based on the reports on the application of private HEIs for increase in tuition and other school fees of 15 Ched regional officers, as well as by virtue of Commission En Banc Resolution 645-2021 and 683-2021, De Vera added.
