Graduate Studies - Finance Policies

The university expects the students to pay their tuition and fees promptly.  The university may withhold students’ privilege for failure to settle their financial obligations.

Assessment of Fees

All students shall receive a computerized assessment of fees after the encoding of the subjects to be enrolled at the Encoding Section of the Registrar’s Office.

Corrections and adjustments in enrollment and the computerized assessed fees should be done within one week from the official start of classes. After this period, correction and adjustments in the assessed fees will not be entertained. Students are advised to ensure the correctness of their computerized assessed fees before the lapse of the one- week period allotted for adjustments.

Manual pre- assessment of fees for some other purpose should be applied for in writing at the Finance Department for a fee of P 50.

Verification Terminal

Payments and adjustments in the student’s accounts are on line.  The student can verify his account balance instantly at the verification terminals.

The students are advised to verify first their accounts due before paying.

Tutorial Fees

Subjects with less than the minimum number of students in a class shall be considered as tutorial classes. The minimum number of students per class shall be seven (7) for master’s degree except MS in Pharmacy, MS Chemistry and MEP, and a minimum of five (5) per class for doctorate degrees, MS Pharmacy, MS Chemistry and MEP.

A student signing in a tutorial class petition form automatically enters into an agreement with his co- petitioners to share equally the additional ( tutorial ) fees to make up for the minimum number of students in a regular class.

The formula for computing the tutorial fee is:


(RMN-AN) x U x R


TF     =     Tutorial Fee
RMN    =    Required Minimum Number of Students
AN    =     Actual Number of Students
U    =    Number of units
R    =    Rate per unit
