One of the known advantages of studying in PLM College of Medicine is the very low tuition fee. For school year 2015-2016, these are the fees per semester. This is divided per year and per category status. There is no total amount yet because the “med fund” depends per student. This is determined on your first ever enrollment based on your parents’ income tax return. It ranges from P5,000-P12,000.
As for us clerks, we don’t have semesters so the fees are for one whole year. There are also additional fees for graduation, comprehensive exams, etc.
The payment scheme is pretty forgiving too. While Category I students pay their whole tuition at once, those in the more expensive categories (Cat II and III) are allowed to pay in two, three, or even four installments throughout the year. Most of my classmates just complete their payments right before they need their clearance at the end of the year.
I hope this helped!
