Davao City – Due to the unexpected increase of basic commodities, the tuition fee of the University of Southeastern Philippines (USeP) will remain this year.
Tagum City USeP Dean Dr. Evelia Sator said that they will retain last school year’s tuition fee which is P150 per unit during the Kapehan sa Kapitolyo yesterday held at the Bulwagan ng Lalawigan, Capitol Compound, Mankilam, Tagum City.
“Kung atong itandi (sa laing eskwelahan), mubu ang tuition fee sa USeP,” said Sator. However, “kinahanglan nga angayan pud ang estudyante,” she added.
USeP is a state university that receives subsidy from the government. Just like any other schools, they have entrance examinations for screening purposes to ensure that slots are filled in with deserving students so as not to waste the opportunity of giving away quality and affordable education which could have been given to others who need it more.
“USeP is proud because we are an accredited school,” Sator said.
According to Sator, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) is now reviewing their application as a center of excellence.
USeP is currently offering undergraduate courses in Agriculture, Technology and Livelihood, Engineering, Education, Information Technology, Economics, and Forestry of which Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Technology is the most popular that is more on entrepreneurship. They are also offering graduate studies.
Sator said that they have had national placers among various courses and their number of passers is above the national passing rate.
As what Sator put it, they only hire licensed teachers with masters degree as a minimum requirement.
