NYC calls for transparency in tuition fees

MANILA, March 3, 2012— The National Youth Commission (NYC) is calling the attention of schools, colleges and university for transparency and full disclosure in all tuition and other school fees being charged for the next school year.

NYC Chairman Usec. Leon Flores III made the call on the reports that some schools are applying for tuition fee increases for the coming school year with the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
Flores said that the process of increasing tuition fees requires proper consultation first before imposing it.
He encouraged students to use their rights to join in discussions regarding tuition fee increase in their respective schools, colleges or universities.
The call was made citing CHED Memorandum Order No. 03 series of 2012 which is “Enhance policies, guidelines and procedures governing increases in tuition, and other school fees, Introduction of new fees, and for other purposes”. It is also indicated in the CMO that the enforcement of the memorandum shall be on AY 2013 – 2014.
Flores urged students to remain vigilant in monitoring tuition fee increases and other dubious fees implemented by their respective schools.
“We don’t want to go over with what happened last year when dubious fees arises in order to gain kick backs from students,” Flores said. (Jandel Posion)
