A Level II survey revisit is for Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) for the Extension area was also carried out.

The program was opened by Dr. Kenneth A. Laruan, BSU Vice President for Academic Affairs as he welcomed the accreditors and introduced the University officials.

“The results of your evaluation are valuable to us simply because your expert findings are very vital in developing our degree programs,” Laruan said.

Estuesta from Cagayan State university is the Team Leader that surveyed BLIS; Dr. Milagros I. Cachola from the Technical University of the Philippines (TUP) is the Team Leader of the team that surveyed MAHE; Dr. Germilda A. Igloso also from TUP is the Team Leader of the team that surveyed MATHE; while Prof. Daniel A. Palmano from the Central Bicol State University of Agriculture surveyed MPA.

Dr. Evelyn T. Taban handled the revisit for BSIT.

In her general orientation, Taban said that in order to pass the accreditation, the programs must gain a grand mean rating not less than 3.5 and an area mean not less than 3.0.

“We aim to survey these programs with objectivity and utmost consideration,” expressed Taban. “We look forward to the best rapport from your students, faculty, and staff.”
