Commission on Higher Education (CHED) confirms 23 colleges, universities have been “approved to re-open for limited face-to-face classes.” Ched also confirms six (6) HEIs have also partnered with their local government by “allowing their facilities to serve as vaccination centers during the first wave of vaccinations.”

The following HEIs passed stringent retrofitting and health standards imposed by CHED, the Department of Health (DOH) and the COVID-19 Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID):

  1. Mariano Marcos State University – Batac (Region I)

  21. Blancia Foundation College, Inc. (Region IX)
  22. Xavier University (Region X)
  23. Liceo de Cagayan University (Region X)
  24. University of the Philippines-Manila (NCR)

According to CHED Chairman J. Prospero E. De Vera III, “These HEIs have fully complied with the CHED-DOH guidelines and have been inspected by CHED and their LGUs so they can now bring their 3rd and 4th year students for hands-on training and laboratory classes in a limited face-to-face system.  CHED will continue to monitor these HEIs and I am confident that they will provide safe and healthy spaces for their students in the coming months.”

Ched stated that since these schools have retrofitted facilities and are safe spaces, six (6) HEIs have partnered with their local government by allowing their facilities to serve as vaccination centers during the first wave of vaccinations:

  1. University of Santo Tomas Hospital (NCR)
  2. Manila Central University Gymnasium (NCR)
  3. St. Louis University Baguio Gymansium (CAR)
  4. De La Salle Medical Health Sciences Institute (Region 4)
  5. Our Lady of Fatima University (NCR)
