Saint Joseph Institute of Technology is officially a Bukas partner!


Driven by the desire to promote education as the means to progress and improve the quality of life of the underprivileged, the founder of Saint Joseph Institute of Technology (SJIT) founded the school in 1971 with a few typewriters and sewing machines in a rented two-story building.

Fast forward to today and the institute has grown to provide the youth of Butuan City and its neighboring provinces with basic education, senior high school, and college with courses ranging from business, maritime, criminal justice, architecture, and more. SJIT is one of the well-known educational institutions in the region. The institute continues to improve its facilities and make education affordable and accessible to future Josephians.

And with Bukas, more students can pursue their dream courses at SJIT. The second term of the second semester starts on March 28, 2022, so you still have ample time to apply for a Bukas tuition installment plan.

Bukas is an affordable way to grow at SJIT

A Bukas tuition installment plan, or simply a student loan, is an affordable and flexible way to pay for your tuition at SJIT. Bukas can cover 100% of your tuition for the semester and pay it in 12 monthly installments or less. Take note that there is an interest starting from 1.90% to 4.90% per month, and a one-time service fee that ranges from 4.50% to 10%. For instance, you need Php 25,000 for your tuition this coming semester. With Bukas, you can pay as low as Php 2,652 per month for 12 months.

Now that’s one way of making your education affordable at SJIT!

To know more about our updated interest rates as of January 2024, check out SJIT's official partnerships page.

Why apply for a Bukas tuition installment plan?

Student loans are worth considering these days. For one, you can better manage your finances. Since you can pay for your tuition for the semester for up to 12 months, you can better budget your monthly finances while studying. What’s also good about a Bukas tuition plan is that you can pay earlier without having to worry about pre-termination charges because there are none. Instead, there’s a chance that you can even earn rebates!

There’s also a chance for you to apply for multiple tuition installments. Maintain a good borrower standing and you can cover your tuition from freshman year to graduation!
