Criteria in judging top ranking State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) include the number of accredited curricular programs, number of certified and active faculty accreditors, establishment of Quality Assurance Office, and support of the University to Internal Quality Assurance (IQA). West Visayas State University topped the list of awardees while Isabela State University ranked second.
Of the 111 SUCs in the Philippines, 109 have undergone accreditation by AACCUP. Mindanao State University (MSU) and Tawi-Tawi Regional Agricultural College (TRAC) are yet to be accredited.//Janet Lynn S. Montemayor
