I called a different school as I saw an advertisement on tv about them having an accelerated program designed for working professionals who haven’t finished their degree to finally get one in a short period of time. Cebu Institute of Technology (CIT) is offering an Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program or ETEEAP. As I was browsing online for more information, I stumbled upon other schools offering the same program, University of San Jose Recoletos (USJR) and University of Cebu (UC).
I called the school up to inquire about the mechanics on how to take advantage of this educational scheme and they said I would need to have a minimum of 5 years worth of work experience to qualify.
I actually have 3 years worth of experience in the call center industry and 1 year’s worth in fast food restaurants. I’m wondering if I qualify since I also worked for our family business before that now folded up. I still need to get evaluated but this offer opened my eyes to the possibility of getting that much-sought after diploma that I’ve been wanting ever since my batchmates (some of them anyway) graduated.
I’m still waiting for University of San Carlos (USC) to implement the same program since this where I’m currently studying. It’s already the extension of the enrollment week or the adjustment period but I’m not too sure if I want to enroll when I was already decided when I went to the university. I have too many options to think about and I feel lost again since I want to just save and save or find a short course so I can develop other skills in the mean time while waiting for my work experience to mature (only need one more year or less).
Now I’m almost decided to not go to regular school. By the way, I chanced upon this forum in Istorya.NET about the said curriculum. They said, USJR has the best ETEEAP program, I’m not sure if it’s within the country or within the region. Anyway, you can just follow the thread to check at how these two posters argued about the amount of the program. Click here to get some comic relief.
