CAP to pay back planholders

THOMASIAN College Assurance Plan (CAP) scholars may now set their cap at tuition settlement after the Makati Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 149 approved CAP’s Petition for Rehabilitation last Nov. 8.

The court order mandated CAP to pay its plan holders with fixed value accounts, the exact amount they failed to give this semester by May 2007. Due to lack of funds, traditional plan holders will be given a reduced rate. Reduced rates are based on the actual tuition scholars need to pay that will only be paid in full after 2012.
