Over 300 private colleges to raise fees in 2016

The Commission on Higher Education is allowing 304 private colleges to increase tuition and other school fees for academic year 2016 to 2017. The average increase in tuition has been pegged at 5.1% or about P43.39 per unit, while the increase in school fees is at P115.58 per unit, equivalent to 5.41%. Kabataan partylist Representative Sarah Elago decried the increases saying it will “undoubtedly force more students to stop schooling due to financial constraints.” The National Capital Region listed the highest number of schools at 70, that will raise their fees.
