The Tagbilaran City government has been accorded licenses by the Commission on Higher Education to operate the Tagbilaran City College (TCC).
CHED last week issued licenses for the TCC to offer three courses, BS Tourism Management, BS Office Administration and BS Entrepreneurship, said Tagbilaran City Mayor Baba Yap.
According to Yap, classes will start on August 5, 2019.
Enrollment for senior high school graduates will be June on 10 to 21 and for graduates from the old curriculum or alternative learning systems, enrollment will be on June 24 to 28.
The city-owned college which started construction in 2017 is meant to be an affordable school for poor but deserving college students.
The project was initially allocated a P-10 million budget but has been infused with various supplemental investment funds to further improve the quality of the school.
It was recently green-lit for an additional funding of P8 million to cover operating expenses, office equipment, books, other structures, property plant and equipment, information and communication technology equipment, and computer software.
The structure is built on a five-hectare, government-owned lot in Barangay Dampas. It is located near the Commission on Audit, Department of Education and Department of Interior and Local Government offices in Tagbilaran City. (Thodd Cabahug, AD)
