ABRA STATE INSTITUTE OF SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOLGY
QUALITY ASSURANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM OFFICE
The accreditation of curricular programs in the Philippines, particularly for state universities and colleges, is the main function of the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP), Inc. Organized in 1987, though officially registered and recognized under the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on September 4, 1989, it is the youngest of the four (4) accrediting agencies in the country until late 2003. Under its charter, one of the functions, if not the main purpose of AACCUP, is "to develop a mechanism of, and conduct the evaluation of programs and institutions."
AACCUP is a non-profit, non-stock corporation now composed of 111 State Universities and Colleges (SUCs). Accreditation for quality assurance in state higher education institutions and programs is both a mission and mandate of AACCUP. Cognizant of this CHED-given authority, AACCUP regularly updates its databank to keep track of its accomplishments as an accrediting body.
