The University of the Philippines Visayas Tacloban College (UPVTC) is a university in the Philippines.

A satellite college of the University of the Philippines, it was established on May 23, 1973 as part of the University of the Philippines Visayas.

History[edit]

In its 823rd meeting, the University of the Philippines (UP) Board of Regents established the UP College Tacloban. It was recognized as a regional unit of the System on May 23, 1973 and inaugurated on July 2, 1973.

Ten years later, Executive Order No. 4 placed UP College Tacloban under the administrative supervision of University of the Philippines Visayas.

Admissions[edit]

UP College Admission Test (UPCAT)[edit]

Admission into the University of the Philippines' undergraduate programs is very competitive, with over 70,000 students taking the exam every year, with about 11,000 being accepted. To maintain its high standard of education and to maximize its limited resources, UP has had to limit slots for undergraduate admission to each campus and to its various degree programs by means of qualification through the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT).
