NAVAL, Biliran- Due to several complains about the P6,000 tuition fee being reflected in billing statements, Dr. Victor C. Canezo, president of the Naval State University (NSU), reiterated that students do not need to shell out cash as payment for tuition and miscellaneous fees for the first semester of the school year 2018-2019.
Canezo made this clarification in a phone-patch interview during the Pulong-Pulong ng Bayan, a regular radio program of the Philippine Information Agency – Biliran.
He said that the amount was reflected in the billing statement because it is built-in in their computer system as the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has not downloaded yet to the University the fund intended for the students’ tuition fees.
He made this clarification for students, parents and benefactors, that they may not worry nor spend additional funds for their college fees because this is a special program of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte which declares it free for all.
However, Canezo advised parents, students, and their benefactors to verify with the accounting section for unpaid tuition fees in the previous semesters as same may not be covered under the new program.
The Naval State University is the only state university in the province of Biliran catering to more than 8,000 students from laboratory high school, undergraduate school of more than 30 courses, and graduate school. (PIA8-Biliran)
