The Certificate of Program Compliance (COPC) is a recognition that the specific degree programs being offered by SUCs/LUCs are fully compliant with the policies, standards and guidelines of CHED. To ensure that the existing programs of the SUCs/LUCs are quality assured, the issuance of COPC shall be requested from CHED. This is in compliance with the CHED Memorandum Order No. 14 series of 2019. In case the SUC/LUC will not be able to secure the COCP within two (2) years, the Governing Board may decide whether or not to continue offering the program.
The awards and recognitions that a university has received in the past is a good indicator of its quality and prestige. Through this certificate compliance, PSU ensures that it is always in line with the guidelines of the Commission on Higher Education to provide our students with a quality and excellent education.
