List of all state universities and colleges covered by free education RA 10931

The Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education law (Republic Act 10931 ) was signed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte last August 3 which provides free education for over a million students in public tertiary and vocational schools nationwide.

The RA 10931 covers "library fees, computer fees, laboratory fees, school ID fees, athletic fees, admission fees, development fees, guidance fees, handbook fees, entrance fees, registration fees, medical and dental fees, cultural and other similar or related fees."

Despite economic managers reservation regarding the signing of the law, Budget Secretary Benjamin  Diokno made it public that  subsidizing tuition in public tertiary schools would be “too costly”- "In the absence of any law, we cannot appropriate money for free tuition," he said. "We estimate that the cost of this bill, it will cost us something around ₱100 billion. Hindi po kaya ng gobyerno 'yan .
