On October 6, 2009, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) granted the University of the East’s Manila Campus the Autonomous Status, in recognition of its exemplary performance in the three functions of higher education institutions: instruction, research, and extension. Furthermore, it is in recognition of the outstanding performance of UE graduates, which shows UE Manila’s commitment to quality, excellence and global competitiveness. UE Manila’s Autonomous Status has been extended several times, the latest of which was on June 1, 2021, which is effective until May 2023.
UE Caloocan would likewise be granted the Autonomous Status on June 1, 2019, which has been extended up to May 2023.
Among the privileges granted to learning institutions that receive the Autonomous Status are determining and prescribing their own curricular programs, and offering new graduate and undergraduate degree programs and courses without the need for a CHED permit. These institutions may also establish satellite branches or campuses without the need to secure approval from the Commission. In addition, institutions granted the Autonomous Status receive priority in grants and subsidies and other financial incentives or assistance from CHED, and are free from regular CHED monitoring and evaluation.
Nine more UE milestones are up ahead in the run-up to the University’s 75th Foundation Anniversary in September 2021…
…and we thank you for being part of us, dear Warrior members of the UE community!
