[UPDATED WITH CORRECTION] AT LEAST 10 schools (not 11 as earlier reported) in Central Visayas, of which six are in Cebu, have sought for an increase in tuition and school fees (TOSF), the Commission on Higher Education (Ched 7) reported.

Ched 7 said on Tuesday, May 14, 2024, that the schools applied to increase the TOSF for the school year (SY) 2024-2025.

“Based on the applications to increase TOSF for A.Y. 2024-2025 received by this office to date, there are institutions with increase in TOSF for A.Y. 2023-2024 that also applied for increase in TOSF for A.Y. 2024-2025,” said Maria Antonette Reyes, Education Program specialist of Ched 7.

The schools are STI College-Dumaguete City, Central Philippine Nazarene College, College de San Antonio de Padua, and Silliman University.

In Cebu, those that applied for tuition increase were Cebu Institute of Technology University, Asian College of Technology (ACT), ACT International Education Foundation, University of San Jose Recoletos, St. Louise de Marilac College of Bogo, and University of Cebu College of Criminology. (CDF)

***

CORRECTION: This report earlier included the University of San Carlos (USC) in the list of schools in Cebu that applied for a tuition increase for AY 2024-2025 based on the statement SunStar Cebu received from Ched 7. The commission, however, corrected the list Wednesday afternoon, May 15, to clarify that it has not received an application for tuition increase from the USC.
