University of Cebu, through two of her leading administrators---Vice Chancellor for Administration Atty. Nendell Hanz Abella and Executive Vice Chancellor Atty. Baldomero Estenzo—trouped to the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Region 7 Office to formally file the university’s application to reduce and freeze tuition fees. The move reduces P2 from every unit enrolled by incoming freshmen. It will also freeze miscellaneous and laboratory rates of other college year levels as well as freeze the tuition fees of second year students until their graduation.

“This will be a model for other schools, not only in region 7,” informed Dr. Candelario Aytona, Region 7 CHED Director. He is optimistic this will keep, return students back to, and even uplift the enrollment of the school, in spite of the current global fiscal crisis.

“It is a way of expressing Atty. Go’s sympathy with the people during this trying time,” explained Atty. Abella of the university’s move, while referring to UC President and known philanthropist Atty. Augusto W. Go.
