Tuition Fees of Colleges and Universities in the Philippines as of SY 2012-2013

June is just around the corner, and soon it will be time for enrollment once again. If you’re trying to figure out how to budget your money for your or your children’s college education as early as now, this list of current tuition fees of colleges and universities in the Philippines as of SY 2011-2012 might help.

Before you proceed, please note that unless otherwise stated, these fees were based on the tuition fee per unit collected by higher education institutions from incoming freshmen students. This means additional expenses such as laboratory and other miscellaneous fees were NOT INCLUDED in the computation.

Additionally, certain courses may impose slightly higher or lower fees than other courses, so please leave some room for adjustments.

Also, the data you’ll find below were based on data from publicly accessible information — mostly from the schools’ official websites — dated as recent as 2013 in most cases, and as old as 2011 in some.

It may or may not have changed since the last time we accessed these sources, so we strongly advise  that you only use the data below for general reference and that you still consult the actual schools for more detailed and accurate information.

  1. Miriam College – almost the same with Ateneo. 30k higher sila. But I guess if you take up Entrep. Courses, much higher pa in ateneo. If I’m not mistaken 100k + sila per sem.

  2. Is there any link where i can find the tuition fees from different schools for foreign student?

    • Hi, Meg!

      We’re sorry, but we’re not sure about that. We just compiled the list manually using data published by schools on their individual and official websites. If you already have particular schools in mind, you might want to visit their official websites when you find the time.


  3. Please,If you could help question is how the tuition work?my son just enrolled for this year 2014,in UST.what is the tuition it is per year or per semester?because he is asking for tuition for this coming December?I hope you could help me with this matter.and thank you in advance.

  6. Thanks for your effort. I appreciate what is being done here to guide and provide information on fees and others. I am looking for data on hard to fill jobs local and abroad. so that we are somehow guided which program or courses will be chosen as against popular courses whose graduate may be unemployed or underemployed later. Thanks

    • Hi, Um!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      The figures mentioned above were taken from the official websites of the schools mentioned in the list and from articles published by news organizations before March 11, 2013. If you can tell us which specific figures are false and you can direct us to an official source that has more accurate and updated data, we’ll be glad to update the post.


      • Miriam college is now 65,000 plus per semester for4th yr c.a.

        • This is so inaccurate. AB Comm. at Letran costs around 34k per sem.

          • Hi, Luna!

            Thanks for visiting our site.

            The figures listed under the entry for Letran was taken from the school’s official website. If you access the cached copy “Tuition Fees Collegiate SY 2011-2012, you’ll see the same figures.

            Also, if you’ll check the note at the start of the article, you might notice the scope and limitations we specified before we provided the table.

            Thanks for sharing what you know, though.
