THE UST Angelicum College on Wednesday announced that it would offer scholarships to students displaced by the sudden closure of Colegio de San Lorenzo.

UST Angelicum is offering a one-day admission process to displaced students in which they only need to pay a P5,000 downpayment.

The remaining balance will be deferred until the students receive their tuition refund from the closed school.

UST Angelicum is also matching Colegio de San Lorenzo’s tuition rates for students transferring from the school.

Transferring students will also be assisted in obtaining a subsidy under the Government Assistance to Students and Teachers in Private Education (GASTPE) program.

UST Angelicum promised students a seamless transfer of records from their previous school.

It is offering admission from pre-school to senior high school in the following strands:

  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)
  • Accountancy, Business and Management (ABM)
  • Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS)
  • General Academic Strand (GAS)
  • Technical Vocational track on ICT (TECHVOC-ICT)  
  • Technical Vocational track on Home Economics (TECHVOC-HE)

It also offered admission to its AB Communication, BS Information Technology, BSBA Entrepreneurship, and BS Human Resource Management programs at the college level.

The Colegio de San Lorenzo announced its permanent closure on Aug. 15, the day it was supposed to begin regular classes this school year, due to financial problems.

Its sudden closure drew criticism from parents and students as the school still accepted enrollees.

The school promised it would refund the students’ tuition in full and coordinate with other institutions where their students could transfer.
