What will tuition fees look like in the aftermath of COVID-19?
With schools lessening activities and possibly conducting classes online, tuition fee hikes are deferred and miscellaneous fees are minimized
May 6, 2020
As discussions about the upcoming school year are underway, educational institutions around the country are looking for ways to carry out classes while minimizing the spread of the virus. With schools and universities adjusting to the new normal, more and more institutions have been leaning towards online classroom arrangements and learning approaches that are aligned with safety protocols.
With this in mind, how are these adjustments reflected in the tuition fees that will be paid for in the coming school year?
Junior and senior high schools around the country are deferring increases in tuition that were scheduled for the coming academic year. With guidelines on social distancing and restrictions on gatherings, school activities are being downsized or canceled—which are reflected in reductions in miscellaneous fees.
