Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP)

The Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP) is an alternative education delivery mode, promulgated through Executive Order 330, which promotes access to continuing quality higher education. It is an effective system of academic equivalency accreditation of prior learning from relevant work experiences and formal/non-formal educational training.

Deputized higher educational institutions are authorized to conduct competency based evaluation and award appropriate degrees to deserving individuals. This is realized through the establishment of equivalency competence standards and a comprehensive assessment system employing written tests, interview, skills demonstration and other creative assessment methodologies.

The University of Baguio has been deputized by CHED in 1999 as one of the higher education institutions in the Cordillera Administrative Region to implement  ETEEAP.
