Tertiary Education Subsidy (TES)

Academic Year 2019-2020


TES Billing Portal is now available in the TES Management System

Tertiary Education Subsidy (TES) participating private higher education institutions (PHEIs) may now create TES billing statements in the Tertiary Management System (TMS) which can be accessed at tms.peac.org.ph. In the creation of billing statement feature, the schools may encode all the required data and update the grantees’ profile. To further read the guidelines, please click the link below:


Encoding of TES Grantee Profile in Preparation for Billing

To All PHEIs:

Please be informed that the updating of TES Grantee Profile in the TMS is already available. In order to successfully update the grantee profile, TES-participating PHEIs are required to encode the academic program and the number of units the grantee is enrolled in, and the other fees charged to the grantee beginning the first semester/term until the second semester/term of AY 2019-2020. Updating of the grantee profile is a requirement for TES billing. The TMS will compute the total TES-1, TES-2, and TES 3A (if applicable) once the required data are encoded.

At the moment, creation of billing statements is disabled while waiting for the approval of UniFAST on the computation of TES-1 and TES-2 payments. We suggest that you update the TES Grantee Profile first so that it would be easier to create TES billing statements once it becomes available in the TMS.

We will update you once again as soon as we get the decision from UniFAST.

PEAC conducts a test run of the TES Management System

The PEAC, in coordination with the UniFAST Secretariat, is conducting a test run of the TES Management System (TMS), an online portal for billing TES grantees in AY 2018-2019. Private HEIs are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the features of the TMS and to give feedback of their user experience to PEAC before the formal launch.

Registration of potential TES beneficiaries through CHEd’s TES Online Portal extended to October 30, 2018

The TES Online Portal (TES OP) is an online system where Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) encode possible TES Beneficiaries in SY 2018-2019. In a CHED Memorandum released last September 13, 2018. HEIs are required to submit their list of “poorest of the poor, poor, and near poor households enrolled students for the 1st semester of AY 2018-2019” using the TES OP.

The TES OP may be accessed through the following URL: The username and password of each HEI shall be issued by the UniFAST Regional Coordinator whose office is also located at the CHED Regional Office.

Prior to encoding the possible TES Beneficiaries, it is suggested that HEIs review the instructions found on the home page and prepare the data required prior to encoding or uploading the list of possible TES Beneficiaries in the TES OP.

There are two methods in registering potential TES Beneficiaries in the TES OP. The first method is encoding each student details directly on the website. The second method is by uploading an MS Excel file containing all of the possible TES Beneficiaries and their details. The second method requires the HEI to download an MS Excel file template which will serve as a guide when encoding the student details. Once student details are encoded or uploaded in the TES OP, the HEIs may edit or delete the student details.

The TES OP also provides the HEIs with a list of courses that are in the registry of CHED.

The deadline for registering the TES Beneficiaries is extended until October 15, 2018. After the deadline, the UniFAST Secretariat will assess all of the potential TES Beneficiaries encoded by the HEIs in the TES OP. For cities or municipalities with SUC/LUC priority shall be given to students identified in the Listahanan 2.0 of DSWD. In cities or municipalities where there are no SUC/LUC, students shall be ranked based on their socioeconomic status.
