The Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines, Inc. (AACCUP) evaluated seven programs of CSU Andrews on Sept. 1-4.

Headed by Dr. Danilo C. Galicia, overall coordinator, the AACCUP team came to assess the documents of the Bachelor of Technical Teacher Education (BTTE) subjected for a Preliminary Survey Visit.

At the exit conference done on Aug. 3 at the Andrews Amphitheater, Dr. Galicia recommended the awarding of a candidate status to the BTTE program after the team found the program to have reached a grand mean of 4.37.
