SSC in Bulan and Castilla named institutes for agri-fisheries in Sorsogon

by BA Recebido

Sorsogon City (3 February) -- The Sorsogon State College (SSC) campuses in Castilla and Magallanes towns are now declared institutes for agri-fisheries in the province after the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has conferred the status last December 2009.

Antonio Fuentes, SSC president, said that CHED Programs and Standards Office conducted a field evaluation and validation of the programs, projects, policies of the campuses early last year in accordance with the pertinent provisions of Republic Act (RA) No. 7722, otherwise known as the "Higher Education Act of 1994".

Fuentes related that new stature of the two SSC campuses will definitely enhance the quality of education or trainings in higher education institutions (HEIs) offering agriculture and fisheries in the country.

Castilla and Magallanes campuses each received a grant of P500, 000.00 for priority projects annually subject to availability of funds from the General Appropriations Act (GAA).

Meanwhile, Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities of the Philippines (AACCUP) has also certified accreditation to three programs of the Castilla campus.

Fuentes bared these include Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Technology (BSAT), Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Development (BSAD), and Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Technology (BSVT), which obtained candidate status effective July 16, 2009 to July 15, 2011 in the preliminary survey conducted by the AACCUP.

He added that more students can be assured of a quality education they deserve having passed the criteria set by the said prestigious accrediting body.

The accreditation was a revisit by the AACCUP. (PIA Sorsogon, with FJazmin, SSC) [top]
