With its newly launched partnership with Bukas, you can expect another check mark to prove that T.I.P. is the one! Simula ngayong S.Y. 2021-2022, mas affordable na ang pag-aaral mo sa T.I.P. As a partner school, T.I.P.ians can now avail a Bukas tuition installment plan as a new payment method! The more options, the better.
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 T.I.P. 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 na may flat interest rate na 1.5% every month at one-time 3% service fee ang bawat installment plan.
With a more flexible payment option for your studies, ikaw nalang ang kulang. To help you get started on your T.I.P.ian journey, we listed down three tips na makakatulong sayo when you enroll this coming semester. Take notes!
TIP #1: Prepare all the requirements for faster application
Requirements are a crucial part of your application process. Nakakatulong ito para makumpleto ang student profile mo. It also helps verify your identity! Kung incoming college freshmen ka sa T.I.P., ito ang kailangan mong ihanda na mga requirements:
- Senior high school report card (Form 138)
- PSA birth certificate
- Certificate of good moral character (with school seal)
- Recent 2x2 ID picture (2 pcs)
- Certificate of honors/rank, if applicable
Make sure everything you submit is correct, accurate, and complete to avoid delays. Likewise, you’ll also need to prepare some things when you apply for a Bukas installment plan. Isabay mo na sa paghahanda ng school documents mo! At the least, you should meet these requirements:
- be a Filipino citizen and at least 18 years old
- have their T.I.P. student ID or any government-issued ID
- have a physical or digital copy of their assessment form
- have a guarantor at least 21 years old with proof of income (working-students can become their own guarantor)
Start preparing your requirements! Here’s a complete list of accepted valid documents.
TIP #2: Apply online for your safety and convenience
As part of its effort to adapt to the “new normal,” T.I.P. has implemented a fully online enrollment process for students. Kung gusto mag apply on site, pwede rin naman. Just remember to set an appointment first!
However, we strongly suggest applying via online for your safety. Plus, you can save time, money, and effort from making the trip. Sayang ang pagod kung pwede naman online, diba? Here are a few reminders:
- T.I.P. created a comprehensive page for all things enrollment. Nandito ang kumpletong listahan ng mga requirements, guidelines, downloadable forms, pati sagot sa mga tanong mo! Go ahead and check out the T.I.P. Admissions page.
- Enrollment period is from June 1- August 22, 2021 for incoming students and transferees while continuing students can enroll from August 5-22, 2021. Make sure to apply before the deadline. Mas maaga, mas maganda!

In a regular semester at T.I.P., you can take up to 27 units (9 courses) for around Php 1, 300 per unit. That’s more or less Php 30,000 in total! Alam mo bang pwede kang magbayad ng tuition na hulugan instead of a one-time payment? Yes, that’s where a Bukas installment plan comes in!
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 T.I.P.. You will then have to pay your Bukas monthly dues for 12 months. For example, kung kailangan mo ng Php 30,000 for your tuition, you can get an installment plan from Bukas and pay only Php 3,025 every month. Ayos, diba?
That said, getting a plan is beneficial for all students—not just for students who are trying to make ends meet. Mas mapagkakasya mo na ang monthly budget mo to cover other important expenses like food and utility bills. That way you don’t have to sacrifice your daily needs and, at the same time, worry kung makakapag enroll ka pa next sem. With Bukas, you can take care of both!
