TAU, now institutionally-accredited

The Tarlac Agricultural University has proven itself to be of high quality as it received distinction as an Accrediting Agency for Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP), Inc. Institutionally Accredited unit prior to its conversion.

As former Tarlac College of Agriculture, the AACCUP, Inc. recognized it to be the first and only state college in the country with Institutional Accreditation with Level I status.

The University was visited November 16-20 in 2015 and was evaluated on the quality of teaching and learning, support to students, research and instruction, facilities and infrastructures. Overall, it received a grand mean of 3.21, with the award to be given without any other requirements to be complied with.

The award was given during the 29th Annual National Conference of AACCUP held February 17, 2016 in Malate, Manila with the then College (now University) President, Dr. Max P. Guillermo and the then Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Maria Teresa SJ. Valdez. Both leaders recognize that the feat was only made possible with the concerted effort of everyone.
