March 9, 2021—Colegio de Sto. Tomas-Recoletos and the Philippine National Bank-San Carlos City Branch (PNB) team up to deliver hassle-free payment services for Thomasian parents and guardians worldwide.
To help reduce in-campus transactions for tuition and other fees, CST-R will soon accept payments made through bank-to-bank transfers, mobile banking application payments, over-the-counter deposit at the bank, internet banking transfers and automatic transfer of payment through selected remittance centers.
Instructions and further details of this remote tuition and other fees collection system will be published soon on the school’s official website and Facebook Page.
On the other hand PNB allows all bonafide Filipino students under 18 years old to open a bank account with them for an initial deposit of only Php 100. Applicants need only to bring their current school ID and a photocopy of their Live Birth Certificate.
Rev. Fr. Joel Alve, OAR and Rev. Fr. Vicente Ramon, Jr., OAR, director-principal and school treasurer, respectively, represented CST-R during the contract signing while Ms. Maria Osilla Molina represented PNB as the San Carlos Branch Manager.
