Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP)

The Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP) is an alternative education program in the Philippines that allows working professionals who were not able to finish their college education or were completely unable to step into a college to earn a bachelor’s degree without going through traditional schooling methods.

Under this program, professionals with five or more years of working experience can use the knowledge, experiences, and achievements they obtained through their jobs to earn school credits that are then deducted from the total number of units that they are required to earn before they graduate. This way, the more professional experience the ETEEAP student demonstrates, the sooner he or she can earn his or her bachelor’s degree.

How Do I Earn a Degree via ETEEAP?

ETEEAP beneficiaries are assessed based on all their work experiences and previous learning. It evaluates your skills, knowledge, values, and attitudes that you gained through your work experiences. The panel of evaluators then aligns these to relevant college credits and, if qualified, presents you with your relevant college degree.
