CHED appeals to HEIs: Be flexible in "no permit, no exam" policy

Iloilo (1 February) -- The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) 6 has appealed to the 149 higher education institutions (HEIs) in the region to be flexible in their implementation of the "No Permit, No Exam" Policy in Memorandum Order No. 2 it issued recently.

CHED 6 Asst. Regional Director Rex Casiple said in that memorandum they have requested these HEIs to extend all possible assistance to students with outstanding balances in tuition and other fees because of financial difficulties.

Casiple said this includes "utmost flexibility in the "No Permit, No Exam Policy" if the school is implementing such, and should allow students with delinquent accounts to take school examinations.

Further, the CHED Memo said that affected students may be required, subject to the discretion of the school, the submission of a Promisory Note, guaranteed by the parents, and subject to the right of the school concerned to withhold the release or issuance of their school clearance prior to graduation until all previous accountabilities are fully settled.

Casiple said they issued the appeal against the unabated increases in tuition and other fees that have "unduly burdened" especially poor families and students enrolled in HEIs all over the country.

"This is also aggravated by the prohibitive costs of basic goods and services in the country," Casiple said. "Education as a basic service is often affected in times of economic recession," he added.

Casiple said that the government recognizes the Filipino family?s premium on education in view of its role in poverty alleviation.

The Arroyo administration has inputed investments to improve quality of education in the country, which prepares the youth for global competitiveness, by helping them finish college on one hand, and help parents keep their children in school, on the other. (CHED/PIA6/ESS) [top]
