    enrollment or on installment basis (enrolment, before Prelim, Midterm

 TUITION

        Tuition is the life-blood of every private non-stock,
non-profit school. Derived from it are the funds needed to defray all
personnel and University expenses. Tuition may be raised to upgrade the
salaries of the personnel for them to meet the continual increases in
the cost of living; to continually improve the University's physical
plant, facilities, and equipment; and to meet the requirements of
modern trends, high academic standards and a more effective and
efficient delivery of the University's educational functions and

 DEPARTMENTAL FEES

         To enable an academic department to exercise some of its
functions independently and promote its own pursuits, it exacts a
departmental fee. This fee is an amount traditionally charged to the
students for the expenses of the college. The management of this fee,
however, is governed by the following guidelines:

  1. All Departmental Funds must be deposited in a SAVINGS ACCOUNT
    opened specifically for this purpose, with the transactions reflected
    in the passbook.
  2. The PRESIDENT and the TREASURER of the College Council and either
    the Dean, or Adviser of the Department must JOINTLY sign the SAVINGS
    ACCOUNT.
  3. All disbursements must be made through the duly elected Officers of the College, namely, the President and the Treasurer.
  4. Any project undertaken by the College Council Officers must first
    be presented to the Dean for final approval and subsequent disbursement
    of funds.
  5. The SAVINGS ACCOUNT BOOK of the College must be kept in the custody of the Dean or of the Departmental Adviser.
  6. Deans or Teachers are not authorized to ask monetary contribution
    from the students for any purpose unless such solicitation has been
    previously authorized in writing by the President of the University.
  7. Two weeks after the start of classes during the first and second
    semesters, the Dean shall post on the bulletin board of the College a
    copy of the financial statement on the departmental fee. The Vice
    President for Student Affairs shall be furnished a copy of the said
    financial statement also during the said period.

 USACPA FEE

         The USA Catholic Parents Association(USACPA), through its
officers, has enacted a resolution to the effect that parents/guardians
become partners of the University in the promotion of the welfare and
well-being of the students while in school. The USACPA fee goes into
the projects of the Association. Moreover, from its collections the
Association extends financial assistance to USACPA sanctioned aids.

 ALUMNI FEE

         This fee is solicited from the graduates on a voluntary
basis for the support of the operations and projects of the Alumni
Association. As Augustinian alumni/alumnae, the graduates play a role
in the academic endeavors of the Augustinian students who come after
them. They are encouraged to contribute to the Association for its
various projects.

 STUDENT COUNCIL FEE

         This fee is exacted from the students (except those from
the College of Law, Graduate School, High School, and Elementary) for
the support of the Council's projects, as well as for basic
expenditures. It is the duty of every student to support the
organization through the payment of the student council fee. The
Officers of the Student Council are accountable for the use of its
funds.
