  • Mabuhay ang PUP! Salamat sa mga tax payer na nagbabayad ng husto!
  • talking about UP...mababa ang tuition...ang problema ang daming mayayaman na nagaaral sa UP ng libre or minimum lang binabayaran dahil niretoke ang ITR ng mga magulang nila...samantalang yung mga kumkita lang ng tama ay nagbabayad din ng tamang tuition dahil hindi magawa ng mga magulang nila ang retokehin ang ITR nila....

    ang malala pa..yun mga hinayupak na nagaaral ng libre at pinagaaral ng mga nagbabayad ng buwis...wala ng ginawa kundi magrally at maging sagabal dun sa mga taong nagbabayad ng buwis na pinagkukunan ng budget ng UP...

    mga walang modo!!!!!!
  • oh yeah, rich hippies... with their dreadlocks and their birkenstock slippers... I kinda wish they'd go to Tibet or something, leave us all here alone
  • One friend of mine said that the students from PUP protested the increase of their per unit rate from 10 pesos to 12 pesos. The students even complained of the 2-peso increase when in fact the per unit fee is already very small compared to other schools even to UP. There are students in PUP who do not actually attend classes but instead engage in some activities.

    Anyways, tuition is really expensive these days. The increase implemented by the private colleges and universities seems to be unstoppable. It is hard to regulate this private institutions but I hope the administrators of these schools also understand the parents and the students. On the other hand, students from SUCs are lucky since the President has already confirmed the refund for tuitions increases that were collected during the enrollment. Good for them. I hope a miracle happens for the private ones.
  • An option for parents who cannot afford the tuition rates in Metro Manila would be to send their kids to the provinces to study. This is also done by Koreans who send their children to provinces in the Philippines where tuition fees are cheaper and the cost of living is also lower.

    Students po ng PUP pero yun mga nasulsulan ni Satur Ocampo, mga tuta niya yun eh. Less than 3% lang naman sila eh. Kahit nga 50 cents magrarally yan mga yan basta makapagrally lang kahit gaano kaliit magrarally yan. Alumni na ako ng PUP kaya alam na alam ko na likaw ng mga bituka niyan. Naghahari harian yan mga yan eh.

    Keso kawawa daw mga student dun kasi sa facility makita kita mo yun mga tuta ni Satur Ocampo nagvandalize sa mga building nito nakalagay yun mga pangalan ng grupo nilang komunista! :grrr:

    tsk-tsk. rich or poor, one earns the privilege to study at UP. hindi ganun kadali mang-retoke ng ITR. that's falsification of public documents. sipa ka na sa UP, kulong ka pa.
  • Tuition fees in state universities and colleges are relatively cheaper than in private institutions. After all, these private institutions are more persuaded to do business because of profit.

    At least, students of those state universities and colleges will not have a hard time this year because the president herself announced that there will be no tuition fee increases. More so, a tuition refund this year is coming to those who increased their tuition fees. I bet even activist students will have a difficult time finding reasons to rally their cause.
  • ^^ they'll blame her for the execution of the GomBurZa... you know how this goes... :D

    Rice, gasoline, house, rentals, jeepney fares....etc!

    All prices are climbing, why can't people get used to it? Mostly the market dictates whether prices will go down or not. If the demand is there and there are more buyers than the products and services, then price will go up and people will have to compete to avail themselves of the product or services.

    Being conscious of the high prices might be good in the long run. People will stop wasting time and money. Why would anyone go to college if they'll just waste their time partying instead of studying.
    People would plan their trips so they won't waste gasoline.

    There is very little possibility that prices will go down. When the exchange rate was in the vicinity of P50 to a dollar, people were expecting that if the exhange rate improved, the cost of goods will go down. well, that didn't happen, the exchange rate get to as low as P41 to a dollar and cost still spiraled upwards.

    The only solution is for people to work harder to earn more to pay for the goods they want. Pinoys should be prepared always because the worst is yet to come. Imagine if Philippines suffer a devastating catastrophe like the earthquake in China or that flood in Indonesia years ago!

    that's because of the continued rise in the cost of crude.

    having a high tuition does not necessarily mean the school offers quality education. i would rather enroll in ust than in ua&p/feu/miriam/san beda.

    At least there are still many in UP and other state universities who are more discerning than is often portrayed in the media. Ang mga napo-focus lang kasi ay yung mga nagra-rally, nagsisigawan na bumaba kahit sinong pangulo. Kaya tuloy sumama ang imahe ng UP na nakilalang pugad ng mga komunista.

    It's best to determine what's needed for "quality education," find out the total costs, and see if one's desired tuition rate will pay for those costs.

    As long as there are those who are willing and able to pay the increase, nothing will stop the cost to spiral upwards.
    A factor in the increase in cost could be $ coming in from relatives of Pinoy students.
    P36,000 is less than $1000. Just a monthly remittance of about $80 per month. Some spend that much on Starbucks coffee per month (Starbucks coffee at $5/cup and 5 times a week is $25/week. At 4 weeks per month there goes a hundred bucks per month!
  • my niece paid 10k for her enrollment at pup....

    first year college pa lang siya.....

    sarap naman batukan nung mga taga-PUP na nagwawala sa 200 pesos/unit. kami nga sa UP na public university rin naman eh 1000/unit. kahit nga noong bago pa magtaas ang UP noong 2007, 300/unit na rin kami. hello, special kayo?

    government subsidized lang po tayo. it doesn't mean the government will shoulder everything. it can't, by the way. not with so many other priorities that the government has to invest its resources in, and current attitudes of congressmen, both factors which the administrators of different SUC's have virtually no control over. it's not a completely free ride.

    hahaha but this is only for students who reside in Manila. Outside Manila students, pay a tuition fee more or less than Php 2000 per sem.

    CCM also has no tuition fee. City College of Manila.


    Ano na kaya ang cost per unit ngayong 2010 sa mga Universities and Colleges. Post an update po diyan sa mga may alam.
