Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia recently announced there will be no tuition increase for Bacolod City College (BCC).
Currently, tuition is P30 per unit, with plans of including the school under the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education law, which provides free tuition at public colleges and universities.
However, it was previously reported, before BCC is able to provide free tuition, it must first be accredited by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
Despite BCC being open since 1997, according to Bacolod City Lone District Rep. Greg Gasataya, all pertinent paperwork for accreditation were sent last June and he is currently in the process of providing follow-up paperwork./DGB, WDJ
