The Philippine Association of Colleges and niversities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA) has given high marks to the Foundation University programs on Liberal Arts and Business.{{more}}

Dr. Eva Melon, vice president for academic affairs, said they have been informed by the team leader of the PACUCOA accreditation team which visited the university last July that the two programs have been given two years to move up to Level 3 accreditation.

The PACUCOA is a private accrediting agency which gives formal recognition to an educational institution by attesting that its academic program maintains excellent standards in its educational operations, in the context of its aims and objectives.

As Level 2-accredited programs, the university’s Liberal Arts and Business programs will enjoy more privileges aside from being recognized as quality programs, Melon said.

According to the PACUCOA website, Level 2-accredited programs enjoy full administrative deregulation, financial deregulation in terms of setting of tuition and other fees and charges, authority to revise the curriculum without Commission on Higher Education (CHED) approval and priority in the awards of grants/subsidies or funding assistance from the CHED and the Department of Education.

Each school seeking accreditation will be surveyed and evaluated in terms of the appropriateness and adequacy of its philosophy and objectives and in terms of the degree and competence with which it achieves its goals.

The PACUCOA accreditors will again visit Foundation University on March 24 and 25 to inspect the Computer Science and Industrial Technology programs for a consultancy visit. “They will just have a look around and when they see that the programs are ready, they will conduct a preliminary survey at another time,” Melon said.

In August, the PACUCOA will visit the College of Education to examine its Bachelor of Science in Education and Bachelor of Elementary Education programs, Melon said.

The College of Hospitality Management and the College of Nursing, meanwhile, will be submitting their programs for accreditation with the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) soon.

University President Dr. Mira Sinco said that recent accreditation for their programs validates the positive changes that have been happening at Foundation University in the last 15 years.

Buoyed by the news of their new status, CBA Dean Dr. Julhusin Jalisan said he will be collaborating with his faculty in writing two books: Simplified Statistics for Business Applications and Feasibility Study: A Comprehensive Approach.
