The University of the East (UE) is one of the well-known universities in the Philippines, with campuses located in Caloocan and Manila. Before the year ends, UE marks its 75th anniversary with another milestone: a new, flexible tuition payment option for UE warriors! Through its partnership with Bukas, prospective students can now pursue their dream course through affordable tuition installment plans.
Fueling bright futures
No dream is too big, and expenses shouldn’t stop you from achieving them! Through this partnership, UE and Bukas offer you a tuition installment plan for your tuition and other school expenses every semester. With this new payment option, you can stretch your budget and pay for tuition over a longer period than the usual one-time payment.
Incoming and current students of any undergraduate and graduate program in the Manila and Caloocan campus can finally avail of this payment option this coming semester at no minimum grade requirement too!
Here’s what you need to know about the Bukas tuition installment plan:
What is a Bukas tuition installment plan?
A Bukas tuition installment plan is a safe, secure, and flexible way to pay for your tuition. When you enroll in your chosen course, we can cover up to 100% of your tuition for the sem while you pay back the amount in 12 monthly installments or earlier. Take note that every tuition plan comes with an interest starting from 1.75% to 4.75% per month, and a one-time service fee that ranges from 4.50% to 10%.
You can also opt to pay off your installment plan in less than 12 months without any early termination fees or other penalties. You also don’t have to worry about the interest because we will only charge you in the months you consumed your plan. For instance, if you finished paying your 12-month tuition installment plan within three months, you only need to pay the interest for the three months. This way, you can budget your finances better for your school and extracurricular activities!
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 UE Caloocan or UE Manila. You will then have to pay your Bukas monthly dues for 12 months. For example, the tuition for the coming semester is at around Php 40,000. Through the Bukas student loan, you’ll only need to pay Php 4,183.33 every month for 12 months. Then, you can check your monthly balance through your Bukas account accessible via the website.
