CHED warns public against false information on financial assistance, scholarships

QUEZON CITY, (PIA) -- The Commission on Higher Education-UniFAST reiterates its warning against social media sites and individuals giving out false information about financial assistance and scholarships offered by CHED-UniFAST, especially about the Tertiary Education Subsidy (TES) program.

According to CHED, the TES program is not a scholarship but a grant-in-aid program by the government that follows a prioritization scheme to qualify as a grantee and is subject to the availability of funds.

Likewise, CHED reiterated that all state universities and colleges (SUCs), CHED-recognized local universities and colleges (LUCs), and private higher education institutions with an existing memorandum of agreement and compliant with all the requirements of CHED-UniFAST are the only ones eligible to implement TES.

The commission also reminded the public to exercise caution and do not engage in transactions with individuals or groups claiming to represent the Commission or UniFAST. Refer only to official websites and verified accounts for any information or announcements related to programs being implemented by CHED-UniFAST.

For any fraudulent or suspicious activity, CHED reminds to report report it to the commission and its Regional Offices or to the UniFAST Secretariat and its Regional Coordinators.
