The BS Agriculture program has been granted Level III accreditation status by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) for a period of five years.

PAASCU is a private, voluntary service organization which accredits academic programs that meet standards of quality education. Some of the areas evaluated include community involvement, instruction, faculty, library, laboratories, student services and administration.

XUCA advanced to Level III a year after having been re-accredited for Level II. 

“It was not an easy process,” said Glenda Orlanes, Assistant Dean of the College of Agriculture.  “The accreditation is an affirmation of our commitment to excellence.”

A Level III accreditation denotes full curricular deregulation and comes with all the benefits of a Level II accreditation such as full administrative deregulation, priority funding assistance and priority for government subsidy for faculty development, among some.

XU also holds a Level III accreditation for its Accountancy and Business and Management, Teacher Education, and Arts and Sciences programs.
