BSCians started enjoying the free tuition fee last semester. This is a great help for the students and also to the parents. Those students who need to work in order to provide for their financial and educational needs would be able to focus on their studies and also a way to encourage the youth to pursue their education. This will also help the school (BSC) as it strives to achieve its targets as a higher education institution in the province of Batanes. With the implementation of this law through the management’s full support, they are now more committed in keeping and maintaining quality tertiary education that is open and accessible to the BSCians.
