No tuition fee increase in SU next year

By Kristine Felva Licup

because of effective financial management, Silliman University will no be increasing both tuition fees an miscellaneous fees for incoming school year 2014-2015.

Mark Raygan Garcia, Office of Information and Publications director, said the decision was made because the university was “successful at maintaining a good financial standing “. He also said it is Silliman’s way to provide a high quality education at an affordable price.

“we do understand that there’s a growing demand for quality education and we want to offer that to anyone at a cost that will save the university from incurring a deficit”, he said.

Garcia added that continuing students should not worry about possible fee increase in the future because the university’s payment scheme was designed to protect them.

“[With the payment scheme], your tuition when you were first year will be your tuition until you graduate. in the event that you go beyond the four year degree program [ or allotted time for your degree program], that’s when the increase comes in”, he said

According to Garcia, the only increase in miscellaneous fees this year was fro the internet subscription.
