POSTED on December 29, 2017

Total effort. This was a total effort of the entire RizalTech community. It would not have been possible without it. Among all SUCs in the country we are only the 3rd who received their cheque.

This morning, together with Dr. Salve Pachejo, Dr. Roger Hernandez, and Mrs. Ofel Mendoza, I went to the Commission on Higher Education central office in UP to collect the cheque for the tuition fee subsidy due us for the 1st Semester of School Year 2017-2018. The total amount is PhP 50,351,100.

One month after the close of enrollment for the 1st Sem we submitted the data required by the secretariat of the Unified Student Financial Assistance System for Tertiary Education Board or UniFAST. We all thought that everything was in order until we were informed during the budget hearing in the House of Representatives in September that we had to submit a hard or printed copy of the Registration Form of each and every student! Right away we studied our situation and we decided to ask each Department and unit in the University to start working and ask the students to Xerox their Registration Forms, and in record time we were able to gather all the copies and submitted them to the UniFAST office.

And finally, after months of waiting, we received our cheque.
