Last May 16, UA&P was one of the 16 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) granted Deregulated Status for a period of three years (from April 1, 2016 to May 31, 2019) by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). There were 59 HEIs granted Autonomous Status with validity periods ranging from five years to one year.
Based on CHED’s Commitment to Excellence and Institutional Sustainability and Enhancement programs, the said educational sector grants HEIs with Autonomous and Deregulated Statuses. The benefits of being autonomous and deregulated include exemption from the issuance of Special Orders (SO) for the institutions’ graduates, exemption from regular monitoring and evaluation of CHED, and priority in granting subsidies and other financial incentives/assistance from CHED whenever funds are available. More details on the benefits, responsibilities, and conditions corresponding to the grant of autonomous or deregulated status are listed in CMO No. 19, Series 2016.
Present during the Awarding Ceremony are Ms. Humilidad Claro (Quality Assurance Office Managing Director) and Ms. Fe Gladys Golo (Univeristy Registrar). Photos of the event may be viewed here.
Kudos to the UA&P academic community on this recent achievement! Let’s continue to support our Alma Mater with its commitment to excellence!
