CHED urges college leavers to finish studies by 2018

QUEZON CITY – The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) called on students who graduated from high school prior to the implementation of the K to 12 program, as well those who have yet to finish their undergraduate degrees, to enroll in college on or before school year 2017-2018 as the country shift to a new educational system.

Through a memorandum dated 13 July 2015, CHED Chair Patricia Licuanan said that the CHED Commission En Banc passed Resolution No. 264, series of 2015 which allows students “who graduated from high school prior to 2016, under the basic education curriculum before K12, and who failed to complete their undergraduate degrees, to enroll and finish their baccalaureate degrees from SYs 2016-2017 to 2017-2018, as a ‘last chance to go to college,’ subject to the policies of their respective higher education institution.”

In a facebook post, the CHED K to 12 Transition Program clarified that the Lifelong Learner Track aims to give assistance for higher education attainment of students who graduated from high school under the old curriculum before the K to 12 reform was implemented.

“All students who enter or return to college from SY 2018-2019 onwards will be presumed to have graduated from Senior High School. If you have previously taken college courses, the college or university you enroll in may credit them, consistent with the systems and policies of individual schools in terms of crediting,” it read.

CHED also added that they commissioned the Philippine Survey and Research Center, Inc. (PSRC) to conduct a study on the potential students under the Lifelong Learner Track. “The research addresses the longstanding need for a proper study on out of school youth, and how the education sector, particularly higher education, can best respond to their needs,” they said.

    1. Hi Sara!

      It’s best to ask the school that you are applying to. There is also Senior High School that you need to take before going to college if you haven’t yet, so you should inquire directly to the school. You can do so by going to http://www.edukasyon.ph and searching for the school you are interested in.

      1. How about those who took-up and finished a 2-year course, will they be affected should they decide to go back to college in the future?

      2. Hi! If you have an Associates Degree, that should be able to let you continue straight to a Bachelors Degree.

      3. Hello po good day,
        May tanong lang po ako.Pwede pa bang makapag.shift to other course by next year? for ex., you take up BSIT for 1 yr. and you want to shift in nursing. Pwede pa ba yun?

        thank you

      4. Hi Mia! We don’t see any reason why you won’t be allowed to shift to another course. 🙂

      5. Question, ang year na ggradUate ako is 2019 pa but I need to stop for some apparent reason, if may balak ako bumalik, pakukuhanin ba ako ng senior highschool o hahayaan nila akong icontinue ang studies ko?
        Ps sana magnotif po ito sa email ko para I’ll know kung nagrespond kayo. Salamat po.

      6. Hi Jean! It depends on the school and course that you are taking. So it is best you consult with your school about this.

  2. hi im pat ahm tatanong kulang sana kung totoo ba talaga na kapag hindi ka naka graduate ng 2018 balik k-12 ka ? eh paano naman yong pinasok ko sa college ,na 2nd year college na dapat ako sa pasukan kaso huminto ako?sow paano yong kapag nag enroll ako next year 2018 as 2nd year college k-12 ako ganon ba ????

    1. Hi Patricia! You need to enroll before 2018 so that you don’t need to take Senior High School. But it will also depend on the school and course you are taking so it is best to consult with your school.

  3. pano po kung tapos na ng 2-year course.Then nagtuloy ng 4-year course then nag stop..Babalik po ba ulit sa senior high if ever na gusto nya ulit mag tapos para sa 4-year course?

    1. Hi there! It is best to ask the school you are applying to because it will depend on the course you’ll be enrolling to.

      1. What if po i wont be able to take all the subjects despite going thru three years worth of college subjects because of shifting and stopping for a while?

        If have to go back do I attend all the classes with all the young children? Is there some special exam I can just take because it would feel kind of humiliating, to be honest, to spend another two years and go through all that.

        I hope there would be more considerations for us, as we are just students.

      2. Hi Shaine, as long as you are able to enroll back to college before the school year 2018 you should be able to continue to finish your degree.

  4. Hi, I badly needed a clear response. I stopped back in 2011 and was only able to finish 1st year, first semester. I have plans of taking a new course, start from scratch basically. Can I still enroll as a freshman? So far kase mga nakikita kong state universities naka freeze ata ang courses due to K-12. If so, do you happen to know any universities that offer such? Appreciate any response.

  5. HI po!

    Ask ko lang po Second Courser po kase ako. bale nakagraduate na ko ng commerce course kinontinue ko lang to Accountancy. Pano po kaya yun? balik k-12 pa rin po ba ko nun?

    1. Hi Potpot, kailangan mong mag enroll sa college ulit bago mag simula ang SY 2018 para hindi mo na kailanganin mag Senior High School

      1. Hi Ma’am .. question ko po is kung mag eenroll ba as Octoberian this 2017 will that still be okay po ? Ayoko na po kasi pabalikin ng senior high since almost 3 yrs na ang completed sa course ko. Thanks po

  9. Hi po. Tanong ko lang po sana, may kapatid po ako nag.k11 last school year tapos na.enrolled siya this june. Biglang pinapunta kami sa school dahil daw may bagsak xia last 2nd sem ng 7 subjects, hindi na daw xia pwede makapasok ngayong sem, dapat daw hintayin nalang niya yung 2nd sem this october. Sayang naman kung magiging stambay lang baka mas lalong magbabarkada xia. Wala na po bang paraan na makapasok xia this june?, kahit overload lang siya tulad ng nasa college kukunin niya parin yung mga bagsak na subject niya or papasukan niya yung mga subject na pwede xia?,ano po bah,,wala kasi kaming alam sa process ng k12

    1. Hi Siddy!

      Maari kayong mag inquire sa school kung san nagaral and kapatid mo, or sa ibang school na pwede nyang pasukan. This usually depends on the school.

      2. Hi Raniel!

        Wala kaming nakikitang problem kung bakit di ka pwedeng lumipat or magshift ng course. 🙂

      3. I have a friend who already completed 5 semesters (technically he completed 2yrs in college) in college before he stops. My question is, if he fail to enroll this school year, will he be included in the new k-12 program and wil he have to be in senior high again by 2018?

        Thanks for your response

      4. Hi po! Just wanna ask what if i want to shift a course next year (2018) i am already a 3rd yr college student, from engineering to medtech. Magtatake pa ba ako ng k-12? Hndi po kasi ako naabutan ng k-12. I graduated high school in the year 2015. Malaking tulong po if masasagot nyo 😭

    1. Hi Vanz, depende sa school na papasukan mo ito kadalasan. Maaari kang maginquire sa mga schools sa http://www.edukasyon.ph. I-search lamang ang pangalan ng school at i-click ang “Inquire” button para i-send sa school and iyong mga tanong.

      1. Hi po. high school graduate po ako.. di po ako inabot ng k-12.. pwede po ba ako mag enroll sa college o kailangan kong mag take ng k-12?

      2. Hi Melody,

        Kapag dating ng school year 2018 at hindi ka pa nag-college, kailangan mo nanag dumaan sa Senior high school.

    1. Hi Reynan, as long as you enroll before the 2018 SY, di mo na kailangan mag senior high school. Depende pa din sa school na papasukan mo kaya mas mabuting maginquire ka sa mga schools. Pwede kang pumunta sa http://www.edukasyon.ph para makapaginquire online sa mga schools.

  12. Hi po, Ask ko lang po, associate graduate po ako (2 years) last 2016. Gusto ko po sana ituloy sa degree course at the same time po nagwowork, nagapply na po kasi ako abroad gusto ko po sana via online ko pagpatuloy yung course ko, papayagan pa din ba ako napagpatuloy ko o balik senior high school na po yun? Sana po matulungan nyo po ako. Salamat po!

      1. Anong year na po kayo sa college? Kung sakali man mag-sshift kayo to another course, baka madadagdagan ka ng isang taon para sa mga back subjects or core subjects ng course niyo. Pwede niyo rin kausapin ang Department Secretary niyo sa course, or sa Office of Admissions and Aid. Thank you!

      2. 3rd year na po ako nagayon sa engineering. So, pwede po ba mag shift ngayong october or next year? At di ako babalik ng high school?
