For the country’s scholars, they are still not exempted from paying other dues in schools amid the existence of the Free Tuition Fee Law.
Under Republic Act 10931 or the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act of President Rodrigo Duterte, students will receive free tuition fees in state universities and colleges all over the country.

However, Kabataan Partylist Rep. Sarah Elago said that this law is not being fully implemented because of the miscellaneous fees that students still need to pay.
The Kabataan Partylist is planning to submit a resolution in Congress for the full implementation of free tuition fees in all state universities and colleges in the country.
