About UC

From a modest start in 1964, the Cebu College of Commerce (CCC) of old has come a long way. Beginning with a handful of enrollees, what used to be an undersized college has succesfully evolved into a world-class university in Asia Pacific, while holding true to its philantropic mantra, "NO TUITION FEE INCREASE".

With forty-two (42) years of quality education, the University of Cebu (UC) has been awarded a Deregulated status by the Commision on Higher Education (CHED), while recognized by the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commision on Accreditation (PACUCOA) as a learning institution with the most accredited programs.
