LEGAZPI CITY. 7June18 — The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) on Tuesday approved the increase in tuition in 36 private and government colleges and universities in Bicol Region for this school year.

CHED regional administrative officer Dr. Dominador Mediavillo, in an interview Tuesday, said the central office in Manila has approved the requests of these schools to implement tuition hike.

“Thirty-four are private and two are community colleges, which are under the supervision of local government units or LGU. These universities and colleges had asked to implement 5 to 50 percent increase of tuition fees for the salary of their teachers, personnel, upgrade of their equipment and laboratories and a small percent of return of investment,” he said.

These schools are located in Albay, Camarines Sur, Sorsogon province, Camarines Norte, Masbate and Catanduanes.

Their tuition increase per unit for school year 2018-2019 ranged from PHP25 to PHP150.
