Gone are the days when good schools were limited to the metro. With provincial schools like Panpacific University (PanpacificU) rising up to the challenge, students don’t have to travel far just to get quality education. That’s great news!
Formerly known as the Pangasinan Colleges of Science and Technology (PCST), PanpacificU is the only university in Urdaneta City that is certified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Kung hindi ka familiar sa ISO, it’s okay! This just tells you that the school has good management and you can count on ISO to back it up.
Kung laking Pangasinan ka or from nearby provinces at naghahanap ka ng school na para sa’yo, then PanpacificU might be your best bet! Ngayong may Bukas na dito, studying in this University can also be a good choice for your finances.
What does the Bukas partnership mean for U?
Even before its partnership with Bukas, the University already offers various financial assistance opportunities for its students. Mula sa school fee discounts for academic achievers, interest-based scholarships for artists and athletes to student assistantship, meron! (If interested, you can see the available scholarships here.)
With their latest partnership with Bukas, mas marami ng options ang mga estudyante para maitawid ang kanilang pag-aaral sa PanpacificU. Starting this School Year 2021-2022, all current and incoming students can now avail a Bukas tuition installment plan to enroll at the University. Here’s what it means.
What is a Bukas tuition installment plan?
A Bukas tuition installment plan, or simply a student loan, is an affordable and flexible way to pay for your tuition. Kapag nag-enroll ka sa PanpacificU through an installment plan, Bukas can cover up to 100% of your tuition for the semester 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 1.2% monthly interest and a one-time 2% service fee.
If you want to pay off your plan earlier than 12 months, pwede! You don’t have to worry about any early termination fee or other penalties. Hindi mo rin kailangang mag-alala sa interest rates dahil magbabayad ka lamang nito para sa buwan na nagamit mo ang student loan. It’s up to you! Halimbawa, if you only consumed 3 months of your installment plan, you only need to pay the interest for 3 months.
Why pay your tuition at PanpacificU with Bukas?
Even quality education can come at a price. But it doesn’t have to get in the way of your dreams. Kung mas magiging abot kaya para sa’yo ang pagbabayad ng tuition and other school fees nang hulugan instead of a one-time payment, may Bukas para sa’yo. That’s why we’re here!
With a tuition installment plan, students like you can stretch your finances to cover other important expenses like food and utility bills. Without worrying about big expenses like tuition every 3-4 months, you can focus on studying and reaching for your dreams.
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 PanpacificU. You will then have to pay your Bukas monthly dues for 12 months.
