Balik-aral with Bukas and NTC

What is the “Balik-aral with Bukas'' program?

The “Balik-aral with Bukas” program is a joint initiative of Bukas and NTC that aims to help students continue their studies for S.Y. 2021-2022 despite the financial difficulties brought about by the pandemic.

Sa pamamagitan ng pre-approved tuition installment plans, qualified NTC students who apply at bukas.ph/s/ntc-app are guaranteed to receive full tuition coverage (including previous balance) from Bukas para makapag enroll sa 1st semester ng S.Y. 2021-2022. Students can then pay for the total amount in 12 months instead of a one-time payment option–mas magaan na paraan ng pagbabayad para sa mabigat na bayarin!

What are the benefits of applying under the “Balik-aral with Bukas” program?

Students who qualify under the “Balik-aral with Bukas'' program have been pre-selected by NTC for a Bukas tuition installment plan. Kung kasama ka rito, ibig sabihin ay makakatanggap ka ng full tuition coverage to settle your previous balance at mabayaran ang tuition amount na kakailanganin mo para sa incoming 1st semester of S.Y. 2021-2022.

Since applicants under the “Balik-aral with Bukas” program have already been pre-approved, you can expect a faster application and approval process. That way, mas mabilis at madali na ang pagbabalik mo sa NTC!

How much is the interest rate and how much will I pay monthly?

While the application process will be fast-tracked for applicants under the “Balik-aral with Bukas” program, pareho pa rin ito sa interest rates ng regular Bukas tuition installment plans na may 1.5% monthly interest at 3% one-time service fee. It will also be payable in 12 monthly installments.

Please take note that the total amount that students need to pay every month will depend on the tuition amount that they will need. For example, kung ang total tuition coverage ay Php 30,000 (includes previous balance and tuition for the 1st sem), the all-in monthly payment (including interest) will only be Php 3,025 per month for 12 months.

What if may pambayad na po ako ng full installment plan, pwede ko ba bayaran in full before the 12 months? (Pre-termination)

Yes. Pwede mong bayaran in full ang tuition installment plan mo with Bukas before completing your 12-month plan. If you pay ahead of your 12th month, makakatanggap ka rin ng interest rebate o adjustment because we will only charge you interest for the months that you consumed. For example, kung binayaran mo in full ang tuition installment plan mo after 8 months, pwede kang makakuha ng rebate for the 4 months that you did not consume.

If you want to pay your plan in full early or pre-terminate your contract, please send us an email at info@bukas.ph so we can further assist you.

Can I apply for Balik-Aral with Bukas but only use it to pay for my previous balance?

Will this cover my tuition for the 2nd Semester S.Y. 2021-2022?

Currently, our plan will only cover previous balances and full tuition for the 1st Semester of S.Y. 2021-2022. But you can always visit the Bukas website to apply for additional tuition coverage for the succeeding semesters. For more information on multiple installment plans visit here.
