Yes. Section 8 of R.A. 10931 known as the “Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act of 2017” states that:
To support further the cost of tertiary education or any part or portion thereof, a student loan program for tertiary education is hereby likewise established for all Filipino students who shall enroll in SUC, LUC, private HEI and TVET program in all TVIs registered under the TESDA. (emphasis supplied)
