De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) partnered with Bukas, an education financing platform in the Philippines, to offer its students affordable and flexible education loans.


With this partnership, Benildeans can avail of Bukas’ Tuition Installment Plans that can cover up to 100% of their tuition, including previous balances, with low monthly interest rates. Students can enroll for as low as ₱6,354, payable in 12 months or less. 


Take note of the following requirements to avail of the Bukas Tuition Installment Plan:

The applicant must have an active Philippine phone number and a guardian at least 21 years old residing in the Philippines. The guardian must also have an active phone number and email address.
