Education is the bridge that allows students to walk towards their goals and dreams.
Bukas is committed to help students cross that bridge through expanding access to higher education, starting with providing tuition plans.
With presence in over 28 schools and 61 campuses across the country (and rapidly growing!), Bukas hopes to see more and more students pursue their studies and create their own path. To that end, we’re eager to announce our newly launched partnership with De La Salle University (DLSU), starting with its DLSU Manila Campus, DLSU BGC Campus, and DLSU Laguna Campus. Every new partner school is a new milestone towards our mission of making education accessible for students in the country.
Here’s what potential student borrowers need to know about this partnership.
There’s a new way to pay for your tuition
True to its mission, DLSU’s academic excellence is tied to faith and service. The University makes sure the Lasallian education remains accessible to as many students as possible, extending a good number of scholarships and grants to qualified and deserving students. Bukas is committed to do the same.
With this new partnership, all undergraduate and graduate students now have more options to pay for their studies at the three campuses aforementioned. As an independent financing provider, Bukas tuition installment plans are available for all students. All programs and year levels included, no minimum grade requirement too.

What is a Bukas tuition installment plan?
A Bukas tuition installment plan, or simply a student loan, is a safe, secure, and flexible way to pay for your tuition. When you choose to pay with Bukas, we can cover up to 100% of your tuition for the term while you pay back the amount in 12 monthly installments. Take note that every installment plan comes with a flat interest rate starting at only 1.5% monthly interest and a one-time 3% service fee.
If ever you want to pay off your student loan earlier, you can do so without any early termination or other penalties. We only charge interest for the months you consume your student loan so managing your fees is flexible to you and your finances!
How does the Bukas tuition installment plan work?
When you apply and get approved for an installment plan, Bukas will pay your tuition directly to your DLSU campus. You will then have to pay your Bukas monthly dues for 12 months. For example, if you need Php 50,000 for your tuition next trimester, you can get an installment plan from Bukas and pay only Php 5,042 every month.
