In consonance with the mandate of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as provided for in Article XIV, Section 1 of the Philippine Constitution “to protect and promote the right of all citizens to quality education at all levels and shall take appropriate steps to make such education accessible to all” and Article XIV, Section 2(3) “to establish and maintain a system of scholarship grants, student loan programs, subsidies, and other incentives which shall be available to deserving students in both public and private schools” the Commission en Banc (CEB) approved the Enhanced Guidelines for the Implementation of Student Financial Assistance Programs (StuFAPs) effective AY 2014-2015, the CMO No. 13, s. 2014, by virtue of Resolution No. 045-2015 and 148-2014 dated January 27, 2014 and March 10, 2014, respectively.

To date, the CHED continues to provide poor and deserving Filipinos opportunities to quality higher education as articulated in its Long Term Development Plan provisions for “Access and Equity” with the establishment and maintenance of scholarship, grants-in-aid and loan programs

Faculty Development Program

The quality of education depends largely on the qualifications and competencies of the faculty. In view of the faculty’s vital role in influencing education outcomes, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) requires that teachers at higher education level must have at least masters degree in the fields in which they teach. The Faculty Development Program (FDP) is a critical factor towards building the strong foundation of an educational system to ensure quality education. In previous and current studies, faculty development has always surfaced as a priority concern. Our nation cannot compete with its neighboring countries that are now moving towards offering cutting-edge programs and technologies unless we invest in creating a pool of experts in our academic institutions. This critical mass will then be capable to train and equip students for significant and promising careers in the global market. More than 50% or 70,000 higher education institutions (HEIs) faculty need to upgrade their qualifications and competencies in order to improve the quality of teaching in our HEIs.

The vast majority of students in higher education are being taught by faculty who possess no more than the level of qualification for which they are studying. Low teacher qualification inevitably leads to low standards of learning achievement among students. CHED Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 40, s. 2008 which requires all higher education institutions (HEIs) faculty to have at least masters degree shall be fully implemented by AY 2011-2012. Hence, there is need to encourage and provide assistance to HEIs to enable them to meet this CMO requirement.

The ETEEAP is a comprehensive educational assessment program at the tertiary level that recognizes, accredits and gives equivalencies to knowledge, skills, attitudes and values gained by individuals from relevant work. It is implemented through deputized higher education institutions that shall award the appropriate college degree.

Beneficiaries must be Filipinos who are at least high school graduates. They must have worked for at least five years in the field or industry related to the academic program they are obtaining an equivalency. They must also be able to show proof of proficiency, capability and thorough knowledge in the field applied for equivalency.

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in coordination with the Department of Agriculture (DA) and other government agencies was mandated to establish a National Agriculture and Fisheries Education System (NAFES) by virtue of Section 66 of Republic Act (RA) No. 8435 otherwise known as the “Agriculture and Fisheries Modernization Act (AFMA) of 1997” during the time of former President Fidel V. Ramos.

NAFES aims to establish, maintain and support a complete and integrated system of agriculture and fisheries education (AFE), modernize and rationalize agriculture and fisheries education from elementary to tertiary levels, unify the system of implementation of academic programs and upgrade the quality and ensure sustainability and promote the global competitiveness at all levels of AFE.
To address these objectives, the National Universities and Colleges of Agriculture and Fisheries (NUCAFs) and Provincial Institutes of Agriculture and Fisheries (PIAFs) were identified. The selection of the NUCAFs and PIAFs were based on the following criteria namely, institutional accessibility, population, economic contribution of agriculture and fisheries in the community, quantity and quality of research studies conducted, degree of utilization of research results, quantity and quality of faculty members, type of facilities, linkages and potential contribution to agriculture and fisheries development in the target area.
By virtue of CHED Memorandum Order No. 18 and 32 Series of 2009 and CHED Memorandum Order No. 25, Series of 2010, the following 31 National Universities and Colleges of Agriculture and Fisheries (NUCAFs) and 84 Provincial Institutes of Agriculture and Fisheries (PIAFs) were identified:
