To apply for an installment plan, you must fit the following criteria:
Account verification and important application updates will be sent to your mobile, therefore you must have a working mobile number.
We will require you to provide a guardian who is at least 21 years old and currently residing in the Philippines. Your guardian must also have a contactable mobile number and an active email address.
A guarantor is someone who will be obliged with handling and taking care of the payments of the student. They must be ready to provide proof of income during your application.
You may choose from these three options when selecting your guarantor:
1. Have your guardian sign on as your guarantor
2. Sign on as your own guarantor (for working students)
3. Choose another guarantor apart from your guardian
You only need your proof of address, student ID (or a valid government ID) , and your updated *statement of account (take a screenshot of your student ledger available on your EmpowerEd portal).
*your Registration Certificate or Pre-enlistment Form with updated fees will do.

Before getting a plan, find out how much you need first (this is called your plan’s “Principal” amount). Do you need coverage for your full tuition? Or do you only need partial coverage? Sometimes it’s better to ask for partial coverage to minimize your monthly payments at the start. You can always add more coverage when you need it.
Now that you know what you need, you can now see how much you will have to repay. This will be bigger than what you asked for due to interest rates and the origination fee charged to your plan.
