Back-to-school: New tuition bracketing scheme hikes UP tuition by P500/unit

Amidst rising drop-out rates, the country’s state university will implement schemes which will effectively hike tuition rates by about P500 per unit or about P10,000 each semester.

According to student groups, changes in the application process of the University of the Philippines (UP) Socialized Tuition and Financial Assistance Program (STFAP) will hike tuition rates by about 50-65%, or from P1000 to P1500 per unit for Diliman, Manila, and LB campuses, and from P600 to P1000 for Baguio, Pampanga, Visayas, and Mindanao campuses.
