Last March 22, 2019, assigned personnel personally received the check representing the Tertiary Education Subsidy (TES) for the students/grantees of Philippine Advent College pursuant to Section 7 of RA 1093 from the CHED RO IX Regional Director, Dr. Emmylou Yanga.
So, qualified PAC students will receive 40k each as their allowance and full refund of their payment of their tuition and other fees.
The release of the payment was a full vindication of my person in a highly criticized decision of accepting First year college students without any payment. The PAC BOT upheld also the decision that incoming college students of the School Year 2019- 2020 will not pay anything at PAC, if granted by the TES.
It is our heartfelt gratitude, sincerest appreciation and wholehearted admiration to the selfless efforts of the PAC team headed by Ma’am Julie Ubas Bautista, the proactive Regional UNIFAST Coordinators, (Ma’am Heide, Ma’am Watchel and Ma’am Juni) the Unifast Secretariat for the job well done. The TES law is now working for the deserving Filipino students.
