Silliman University in Dumaguete City is eyeing an increase of not more than 10 percent of its tuition starting June 2018, its press release said.
After a careful review of new costs, Silliman said the adjustment will only be for new and incoming enrollees and students who enrolled earlier, but will transfer to a new program in June 2018.
Students who enrolled in Silliman before June 2018 and remain in the same course or program by the new school year will pay the same tuition as before, the press release said.
Some fees may be converted to flat rates or adjusted, based on current prices, as would be necessary and applicable to certain programs.
For two consecutive school years, the tuition and fees in Silliman have remained unchanged. These were when the country began the implementation of the K+12 education reform program, the press release said.
The arrangement of reviewing tuition and fees alternately every two years ensures that the University will be better able to sustain its operations, and improve its programs and services, without putting undue burden on parents, it added.*
