Dependents of police retirees in this province can now avail of a 50-percent discount on tuition in view of a memorandum of agreement (MOA) between the provincial police office and a renowned college here, a school official said on Sunday.

“This is our way of showing our appreciation and thanks to the men and women of the PNP (Philippine National Police) who risk life and limb to protect us, civilians,” said Jojo Gallego, president of Manuel V. Gallego Foundation Colleges, in an interview.

He said he signed the MOA with Nueva Ecija Police Provincial Office director, Col. Jaime Santos, in ceremonies witnessed by police personnel from all 32 police stations and two provincial mobile field companies via Zoom last Thursday.

Gallego said their programs “have attained standards that are beyond the requirements of CHED (Commission on Higher Education).”

“Our criminology program, for example, is the first criminology program in Region 3 to attain Level 3 accreditation with Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation,” he noted.

Their nursing program, established in 1963, was the first of its kind in Central Luzon, he said. The school will undergo its Level 2 re-accreditation process in September.

“I am very pleased that our educational institution is entering into a MOA with the PNP to give special discounts in tuition to dependents of PNP personnel,” Gallego said.

Aside from criminology and nursing, students can also take business, accountancy, teacher education, as well as computer science and information system.

The school has strong Information Technology infrastructure and internet connections for stable online learning amid the pandemic, the official said.

“We have e-learning platforms and resources. Meron rin po tayong mga modules na (we have modules that are) hard copy for our students that do not have good internet access,” he said, noting their teachers were trained for the system.

“So, I welcome this opportunity for a partnership with the PNP,” Gallego said.

Santos hailed the agreement as a welcome development that will help PNP families and dependents. (PNA)
