Making education accessible continues to be Bukas’ mission. We aim to provide Bukas Tuition Installment Plans as a flexible tuition payment option for college and graduate students across the country.
We value transparency, which is why inform you of any rate changes as soon as possible to give you ample time for necessary adjustments. Unfortunately, we are not immune to our country's economic situation hence the updated rates. Rest assured that each application is thoroughly reviewed by our Assessment Team. A borrower’s submitted information, documents, and payment behavior are all taken into consideration to give the best possible price.

For reference, the Standard Tuition Installment Plan ranges from 1.90% to 4.90% interest rate per month, with a one-time service fee that ranges from 4.50% to 10%. Interest rates may also vary per school.
- I am a repeat borrower. Why is the interest of my new loan different from my existing loans?
Each application is thoroughly reviewed by our Assessment Team which is why applications, despite coming from the same borrower, may have different results. Because the submitted information, documents, and payment behavior are all taken into consideration, your final interest rates may differ from your previous installment plan.
- Will Bukas installment plans still be payable in 12 months?
Yes. Bukas installment plans are still payable for up to 12 months. If you wish to close your Bukas installment plan in less than your chosen tenor/ installment length, please refer to item no. 6.
- With the rate changes, will I still be able to pre-terminate my plan?

The interest rebates will be based on the rates indicated in your contract.
You can still request for pre-termination of your plan. To request for pre-termination and a re-calculation of the interest of your plan, please send an email to [email protected]. To learn more about pre-termination, please visit this link.
