Miriam College’s mission is to empower women (later on, students of all genders) through education.
The school has a rich history that dates back to 1926 when the Sisters of the Maryknoll Congregation in New York received a request to create a teacher-training program for Filipino women.
In 1953, after several relocations, Maryknoll College found its permanent location in Diliman, Quezon City. When the congregation confirmed the Filipino laity’s capacity to continue the institution’s operations, they entrusted its operations to the latter. In 1989, Maryknoll College was renamed to Miriam College.
Throughout the years, Miriam College provides access to courses and programs relevant to creating solutions to today's challenges. And with Bukas, earning a degree at Miriam College just got more affordable and flexible.
Sharing one mission
Miriam College and Bukas have a shared goal that enabled this partnership to begin in the first place: the desire to provide students access to quality education. Bukas, as Miriam College’s third-party educational loan assistance partner, provides affordable and flexible tuition installment plans to parents and college and graduate students.
As a future or current Knoller, you now have more options to pay for your college education.
For instance, if you have an overall tuition balance of Php 60,000 at Miriam College, Bukas can make it affordable for you to pay as follows:
- Tuition amount: Php 60,000
- Plan duration: 12 months
- Monthly interest: 1.5%
- One-time Service Fee: 3%
- Total amount to pay: Php 6,050 per month
Note that as of the moment, Bukas is only available for Miriam College students of the Quezon City campus.
