THE UNIVERSITY will offer an installment plan with a P5,000 downpayment for Term 1 of Academic Year (AY) 2020 to 2021 to draw enrollees amid economic difficulties resulting from the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic. 

The Office of the Vice Rector for Finance said the new payment scheme and lower fees would “provide optimal access to education” to students.

There is no tuition increase for college freshmen next academic year, which will see the implementation of the “Enriched Virtual Mode” of learning in the first term of the academic year.

Fees for drug tests, retreats and recollections, and PE uniforms were removed from the table of fees, while miscellaneous fees for athletics, library, and medical and dental services were cut by about a third.

Audio-visual, energy, and physical infrastructure development fees were cut by at about 50 percent.

Grade 11 students’ tuition was kept at P35,616 while miscellaneous fees decreased by 33.4 percent.

Details and breakdown of the new scheme for tuition and other fees, which will be effective only for the first term of AY 2020-2021, are found on the myUSTe student portal.

Freshmen enrollment was extended to June 17 while enrollment of higher batches for the special term will be on June 18 to 19.
