Tuition Fees at FEU and Some Other Universities in Manila, Philippines

Some Portions Updated February 16, 2013:

In less than two years, my daughter has enrolled and studied in three different universities in Manila because of different reasons, including allergies, fluctuations in finances and wrong choice of course.

As we searched for schools, we came to know about the ranges of tuition fees in some schools. Some universities publish their tuition fees on their web sites; others don’t. We hope the following info tidbits on tuition fees are able to give you some ideas about tuition fees in different universities.

Take note also that it’s best to inquire while your child is still in 3rd year high school, or early in the senior year, as there are certain schools which start and close their entrance exam and admission periods several months before the start of their freshman year.

UP – Application period is about a year ahead and the exam is usually in August. (For example, freshmen entering UP this June 2012 applied to take the exam or UPCAT within the period May to middle of June 2011 and took the UPCAT last August 2011.)

UST – Application period is from June to first week of December and the exam or USTET has 3 schedules (one in August, one in October, and one in December)

PUP Manila — Application period is from September to November. For the 2012-2013 school year, PUP Manila had two PUPCET schedules: January 29,2012 and February 19, 2012.

PUP Satellites – Have later schedules, but many hold their exams in February and in March. Some in the provinces hold several exams in March and in April.

DE LA SALLE – Application period is from June to middle of September and the exam has 3 schedules in October.

ATENEO DE MANILA – Application period is from June to middle of August and the exam or ACET is in September.


All tuition fees mentioned below are for ONE semester and are in PESOS, except when noted otherwise. Also, the tuition fees published here are ESTIMATES and may not be exactly the same as the total amount that you will eventually pay.

Most schools administer 2 semesters in a year. Those that operate on a trisem calendar (3 semesters in a year) include:

– De La Salle University
- Asia Pacific College
- De La Salle- College of Saint Benilde
- AMA University
- FEU-East Asia College
* (FEU Manila is on a 2-sem calendar)

* Mapua administers 4 sems in a year (quarterms)

Note: I gathered fees for only a number of courses; the schools offer other courses.

From the UP website:

UP uses a socialized tuition system, meaning students pay based on their family income. The system is called Socialized Tuition and Financial Assistance Program (STFAP).

A student applying for the lower tuition brackets need to show notarized financial documents that include tax returns, real estate tax declarations, statements of assets and liabilities, water bills, electric bills, or municipal certification of unemployment.

Tuition fee per unit (UP Diliman, UP Los Banos and UP Manila):
- 1,500 pesos per unit for Bracket A (annual family income of more than 1 million pesos)
- 1,000 pesos for Bracket B (income of 500,001 to 1 million)
- 600 pesos for Bracket C (income of 250,001 to 500,000)
- 300 pesos for Bracket D (income of 135,001 to 250,000)
- Free tuition for Brackets E1 and E2 (income of 135,000 or less)
- student allowance of 12,000 pesos per year, Bracket E2 (income of 80,000 or less)

Miscellaneous fees = 2,000 pesos

UP evaluates students’ financial capabilities every year and changes their STFAP brackets to match their current financial situations.

I’m sad that some of the bigger schools removed tuition fee info from their web pages very recently. BAKIT KAYA?

Please share your schools’ tuition fee info in the COMMENTS section below. I’d appreciate very much your effort.

  1. Hello, ano po ba ang mas maganda ang edu for BS Bio, sa FEU po ba or CEU. At talaga namang reasonable ang tuition fee.
    Hindi ako nakatake sa UP and sadly hindi ko naipasa ang USTet. Hindi namin ang dslu or ateneo. May iba pa bang magandang school esp. their edu in Bs Bio?

  2. Hi,

    About FEU’s Biology Program..

    Tuition and Fees for incoming freshmen (AY 2014-2015) is P48,978.00 (25 units)

    It’s a level III accredited program by PAASCU..

  3. Hi po maam , kakagrduate ko lang pong 4th year HS , suggest naman po kayo kung saan ako pwede mag aaral sa BSBA major in Marketing kong course , unlucky po kase ako sa Plm at Pup at yun lang po ung natesan ko , ano pa po bang school ang masusuggest nyo na may mababang tuition at may magandang quality ng pagtuturo para po ako ay madaling makahanap ng trabaho pagka graduate ? Hanggang ngyon kc po wala pa akong school at nanlulumo po ako kapag naiisip ko un :( . Yun lang po Thank you po sa mga informasyon. Godbless po:”) and have a Good day <3

  4. Hi Eya, you must be a Manila resident because you were eligible to take the PLM exam. That means you’re eligible for admission at Universidad de Manila — I’m not sure though if they’re strict with their rule that applicants must be grads of public high schools. Siguro naman, ok ang turo dito because it had a high rating in the Mar 2014 electronics engineering exam, although medyo malayo ang marketing sa engineering. Kung puede ka sa ibang course, tingnan mo rin ang TUP kung okay pa sa iyo yong mga open pang courses — last exam is Apr 27. RTU in Mandaluyong is also a state school. Explore mo rin ang EARIST. Don’t stay discouraged. Ok lang ma-down, but don’t stay there down, get up and find your school. Merong purposes/reasons kung bakit hindi ka nakapasok sa PLM or PUP — one is to make you stronger to find success in another school. God bless

  5. good day po..magkanu po kaya ang tuition fee ng bsED sa NEW ERA UNIVERSITY? wala po kc nakalagay na info about tuition fees sa website nila…tnxs po sana po masagot…

  6. Hi guys! I am inviting everyone to visit FEU Manila. Quality education + awesome events + great professors. I am a BSBA Internal Auditing student. I would love to further elaborate this program, interested? Message me! 09437009090 thanks!

  7. Hi Ms. Nors! It’s me again. :) do you know any universities that have Student Assistance Program? Gusto ko sana maging working student at the same time studying na din sa school na alam kong makakatulong sa akin sa future.. Financially in need po kasi baka magstop ako pag hindi po ako makapag isip ng paraan. Text me for further info you want to know Ma’am 09213377956. Please help me! Thank you very much!! I owe this blog alot! :)

  8. Hi Maya, mahirap ding umasa na maging student assistant, kasi ang dami ring nag-a-apply na dati nang student. I think it’s better if you study at a state university or your city’s or regional/provincial university so you can focus on your studies. Check if PNU , TUP, RTU or EARIST are still open.
    Puede ka ring young businesswoman — sell cellphone loads, or observe what your classmates want/need and do buy-and-sell. Magkakapera ka na, magiging popular ka pa.

  9. HI! I was wondering if alam niyo po ang tuition and fees ang CEU Manila ng Proper Dentistry? Hindi po kasi ako taga Manila. Taga Iloilo po ako so plano ko po sanang mag proper dyan. Wala talaga akong ideya kung mag kano. Maraming Salamat po! God Bless:)

  11. good am po maam nors ask ko lang po sana kung magtransfer po ako sa manila possible po ba na may macredit sa mga subjects ko from my old school?sayang po kasi ung 42 units na natake kuna po. thank you po. Godbless mam nors.

  12. Hi iamrafa, depends on the school and the course. If your course is not accounting or nursing or medical technology, many of your subjects will be credited. For some schools, they want you to take all their subjects with them if you’re taking accounting and other courses with licensure exams. But there are schools that are more considerate with transferees.

  13. I am quite discouraged that most schools do not entertain students who are willing to finish college but is not a resident in that certain place.Is it really a requirement?Oh come on people!

  14. hi ms nors, anu po ba sa tingin nio yung mas maganda bs pharmacy or bs med tech??.. and san po ba yung mas mataas yung salary???

  15. Hi makies, depende ang future earnings mo sa work mo or business mo. Evaluate your skills and passion so you can choose. Pag med tech, usually sa hospital or medical/research/health facility ka magwo-work. Pag pharmacist, puede kang mag-bisnis o mag-manage ng generic pharmacy. Both of these require licensure exams, so choose one wherein you know you can excel.

  16. Hi, my son studied in UsT for 1 yr and transferred to Trinity of computer science , apparently d sya nakatapos because of his barkada.and his not that interested in his course .He’s asking me to study again maybe HRM or Tourism. What do you think yung magandang turo para d na to mabarkada uli and affordable tuition in Manila .ty

  17. Hi Marites, you know of course na mahirap ding maghanap ng affordable na quality school. LPU has a hotel for HRM students. Among more affordable schools are University of Manila, RTU and PCU. If you like, you can ask your son to go with you to EARIST Nagtahan (HRM is offered here), so he can see that there are young people diligently studying at cheaper schools, hoping he’ll feel how lucky he is that he can afford to study at private schools with better facilities, and hoping he’ll focus on studies this time.

  18. hi i am ghanaian a high school graduate i will like to be offered admission in feu to study med tech as my pre med course before i further to study MD. i will like to know the requirements for admission in feu and the Fee structure of each semester for feu.thanks and hope to receive your reply soon.

  19. Hello Ma’am paano po yung mga second courses na ang kukunin ? maccredit po ba yung mga subjects ko dun sa bagong course . o nagsstart po ulit ako mula first year ?

  20. Hi Kath, most basic first-year or 2nd-year subjects like English will be credited. The department will interview you about the contents of certain subjects before they’re credited. Some schools ask you to submit a written description of all subjects that you’ve taken. If your 2nd course is accounting or a course that requires a board exam, some schools require that you take all your subjects with them.

  21. hi. NORA
    My son study. In dentistry in manil. He is in propel in clinic

  22. Hi Lyza, do you mean Jose Rizal University? JRU is a private school, so it’s very likely that it’s accepting second coursers.

  24. Hi maki, comp engg is a good course, especially if you’re really into computer tech. Study well; supplement your studies with online studies. You’ll be able to get a job, as long as you’re determined. You can browse, to see the current job market.

I’m aiming for UP huhu Is it possible for me to pass it? I reviewed in 2 entrance exam last summer though. Im now cramming. I really hate procrastinating.

  30. Hello po :) Itatanong ko lang po sana kung saan po magandang mag-aral ng BS Tourism Management? 1st year College na po kase ako ngayon sa STI kaso po parang gusto ko pong lumipat. Tnx po.

  31. Hi tita nora, ask ko lang po, meron po ba kau maganda idea na school para magtransfer ng BS ARCH. Affordable but quality education. Nag aaral po ako ngaun sa TIP MANILA. Ng BS ARCH. Sadly po, hindi po maganda ang turo, kasi po walang nagtuturo. Lagi po absent and late. Madalas po ngpapa attendance lang. Kaya po naisip ko po magtransfer. Nanghihinayang po ako sa tuition na binabayad. 2nd year student po ako. Balak ko po magtransfer sa RTU. Tumatanggap po kaya sila ng transferee?

    God bless.

  32. Hi Regrets, you still have time. Take a warm bath in the morning. Wear comfortable clothes. Be calm. Focus. Concentrate. Get away from distractions. Pray. Say “From now on, I’ll do my best. If UP is for me, then I’ll pass the exam.”

  33. Hi Dreamer, I’ll email you UST’s tuition fee chart. Please email back after receiving it. Tuition fee per sem for first-year Pharmacy is 58,600; 2nd year, 66,800; 3rd year 50,500; 4th year, 63,900. You can explore Med Tech or Physical Therapy.

  34. Hi Dreamer, new-employee salaries depend on your skills and your employer. CPAs get good salaries after some years. Your preferred courses, which are medical, will help you earn a lot later on. Find better employers as you gain experience.

  35. Hi Regine, I think any school where you can hone your English communication skills will be good. La Salle, St Paul’s, UST. Lyceum also is recommended in forums. And of course, UP and PLM.

  36. Hi, thank you for posting this valuable information. Would you know how much the minimum downpayment is for UP? I would greatly appreciate your reply. Thanks!
