Good news for Parañaque students going to college!

The Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP), in partnership with the City Government of Parañaque opened on Thursday, May 12, 2011 its campus in the city.

The inauguration was graced by Parañaque Mayor Florencio Bernabe, Jr., 2nd Dist. Rep. Roilo Golez, PUP Pres. Dr. Dante Guevarra, PUP Vice-Pres. for Research and Dev’t. Dr. Pastor Malaborbor, PUP Exec. Director for Branches & Extension Services Prof. Randolph Alcantara, PUP-Parañaque Campus OIC-College Administrator Ms. Socorro Rivera and Rev. Fr. Vir Pedragosa.

The initial offerings at this newest Metro Manila PUP branch are courses in Information Technology; Hotel & Restaurant Management; and Business Management that can lead to baccalaureate degrees.

Situated in Brgy. Sto. Niño, this city, the PUP-Parañaque Branch Building has 24 ready classrooms that can accommodate 40-50 students each.

The establishment of the PUP Parañaque campus was made pursuant to City Ordinance No. 11-03 Series of 2011, “An ordinance converting the present “Pamantasang Bayan” Center of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) in Parañaque into a regular campus”, which was penned by Coun. Edwin Benzon.

Its history dates to May 10, 1990 when a MOA for the establishment of a PUP center in Parañaque under its “Pamantasang Bayan” Program was executed between the PUP, represented by its then President, Dr. Nemesio Prudente and the Municipality of Parañaque represented by then Mayor Walfrido Ferrer.

Due to the successful implementation of the aforesaid program, the people of Parañaque through Municipal Ordinance No. 91-107 expressed their great desire for the PUP to expand its courses to include technical and academic courses.

 The subsequent local legislations particularly, Resolution No. 04-35 and No. 07-39 both authorized the city government to negotiate and enter into an agreement with the PUP for the early establishment of a PUP campus in the city. Under the MOA, the Parañaque City Government will start-up and maintain the initial offering of certain undergraduate courses that have been agreed upon; hire administrative staff, security and utility employees and pay their salaries, wages, bonuses and other usual monetary benefits granted by law, among other responsibilities.

It will be the duty and responsibility of the PUP to offer an academic program perceived to be “in-demand” which are mutually agreed upon; select, hire and remove academic personnel; charge and collect tuition and miscellaneous fees as determined by the PUP; and assist the city in tapping resources and scholarship donors for economically-disadvantaged-but-deserving students, among others.

“With a PUP campus in Parañaque, we will be able to bring affordable quality education to our youth, especially to those from poor families.”, Mayor Bernabe said.

Coinciding with the inauguration of the PUP Parañaque Campus is the opening of the new home of the city’s prime public high school, Parañaque Science High School also in the same school campus.

Thank you.

  25. ms.hellokitty on February 20th, 2012 3:24 pm

    Kung gusto nio mag aral sa pup just go to lahat ng branch nila nasa website na yan at nanjan din ang application form sa mga gustong mag entrance exam.. magbabayad ka ng php525.00 sa landbank pag naprint mo na yung application form.. then after 3 days pupunta ka sa branch ng pup na nilagay mo sa application form para kunin yung test permit at magpapicture ng 1×1 at 2×2 march 12,2012 ang last date yata ng exam at hanggang feb 27 nalang pwede mag apply.. take note staff ng pup ang magpipicture sayo.. at para sa mga gusto magtransfer ang alam ko PWEDENG hindi tumanggap ng transfer student ang isang university.. depende sa patakaran nila, sa subject units nila at sa dami ng semester nila.. HINDI PO LAHAT NG SCHOOL AY NAKAKAPAGCREDIT NG SUBJECT UNITS.. marami naman public colleges dyan na natanggap ng transferee.. ngayon kung gusto niyo sa pup talaga.. kailangan niyo bumalik sa 1st year…

  26. ms.hellokitty on February 20th, 2012 3:29 pm

    At hindi po namimili ng students ang pup.. pwede mag aral jan ang mga student kahit saan nakatira.. ang mga CITY COLLEGES (pamantasan ng lungsod) lang po ang may ganung patakaran.. pero minsan nag aadmit din sila ng mga outsiders or yung mga hindi resident ng lugar nila..
