P3K Downpayment Allowed At Silliman

Silliman University offers an additional scheme/option, allowing a P3,000 downpayment for enrollment in the second semester.

The move aims to help the parents and students slowly recover and cope with the losses incurred during Typhoon Odette’s onslaught that hit the Visayas and Mindanao regions last month, without interrupting their studies.

The University also announced waiving surcharges for delayed payments that were due in December last year.

SU President Dr. Betty Cernol-McCann said the move aims to ease the burden of the parents, especially those badly hit by Typhoon Odette, as “our institution would want to continue our mission of providing whole-person education among our students.”

She said the students’ education is of utmost importance; thus, “we always find means to allow them to continue their studies despite the adversities encountered by their families.”

Dr. Jenny Chiu, vice president for Finance & Administration, said empathy and compassion are what the students and the parents need at the moment due to the current destruction to personal properties and businesses brought about by Typhoon Odette.

For her part, Prof. Jane Anette Belarmino, vice president for Development, said the University’s move is in “cognizance to the challenges brought about by the typhoon; thus, the University is allowing downpayments of P3,000.”

The enrollment and opening of classes will continue based on the University school calendar. Registration is set for Jan. 10-14; classes start on Jan. 17.

A memorandum issued to the Deans Conference earlier by Dr. Earl Jude Paul Cleope, vice president for Academic Affairs, announced the “postponement of submission of deadlines and examinations to Jan 3-6, and grade submissions Jan. 10-14”.

Dr. Giovanni Macahig, registrar & admissions officer, explained the extension of enrollment for another week would help the students comply first with the submission deadlines, take their delayed examinations, and for the teachers to submit the grades that are necessary for enrollment. (SU OIP)
