Throughout history, education has proven its role in changing lives and empowering the youth. In our country, however, quality education is sometimes out of reach for economically challenged students. But this is not the case for Malabonian students in college, as they are not only benefiting from quality education -- they are now guaranteed of free quality education courtesy of the City of Malabon University (CMU).
Last July 16, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) issued to CMU a “Certificate of Eligibility,” allowing it to benefit from Republic Act 10931, known as the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act. This law allows state universities, colleges, and state-run tech-voc schools to provide students with quality education without the need to pay any tuition fee and enjoy exemption from paying other school fees.
