University of Cebu accountancy students graduated as Certified Public Accountants and experienced a perfect graduation day. The students achieved this feat through hard work and with the guidance and support from the UC faculty and administration.
Usually, students graduate first before reviewing for the CPA board examinations. But these students from the University of Cebu Banilad Campus College of Business and Accountancy became CPAs first before their graduation ceremony.
As early as May 2013, Sheena Fernan, Jan Erika Go, Camille Anne Garcia, Wenceslao Pepito, Katrina Montenegro, Marilyn Escabas, Lowell Lloyd Cañete, and Ronalyn Alaraz, started their final semester in accountancy. This gave them a month’s leeway in finishing their course requirements and preparing for their board exams.
They took the CPA board exam last October 5, 6, 12 and 13, 2013 and the results were released on October 21. They all passed with flying colors. The Professional Regulation Commission said 4,246 out of 10,396 passed the Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination this October 2013.
So it was another perfect graduation for these students as they walked up the stage on their Graduation Ceremony last October 24, 2013 at the University of Cebu Maritime Education and Training Center in Mambaling, Cebu City.
Their college chairman and mentor Mr. Cris Biore said, “This is a real outcome immediately upon graduation. It is a huge help to their parents in its truest sense, as their children can practice their profession right away; giving honor and fulfillment to their years of struggle.”
