History[edit]

The Catanduanes State University’s beginning dates back to June 18, 1961 when Republic Act 3398, which called for the establishment of Virac National and Agricultural Trade School (VNATS), was enacted.

Ten years thereafter, Republic Act (RA) 6341, which was authored by Congressman Jose U. Alberto, converted VNATS into Catanduanes State Colleges (CSC) on June 19, 1971. CSC started functioning as an educational institution on December 1, 1971, initially offering courses such as Associate in Business Education, Associate in Commerce, Bachelor of Science in Education, and Master of Arts in Education and Master of Arts in Commerce. Additional courses were offered on July 8, 1972 by virtue of RA 6590.

In 1996, Catanduanes State Colleges conformed to Republic Act No. 8292, which provides for the uniform composition and powers of the governing boards, the manner of appointment and term of office of the president of chartered state universities and colleges, and for other purposes

On October 31, 1999 the Catanduanes Agricultural and Industrial College (CAIC) was integrated to the Catanduanes State Colleges. This is Pursuant to Special Provision No. 2 of the CHED FY 1999 Budget under the General Appropriations Act of 1999 (R.A. 8745 or the integration of CHED Supervised Institutions to State Universities and Colleges). Subsequently, by virtue of Board Resolution No. 15, s. 2003 that called for the implementation of an approved and the Revised Organizational Structure, CSC-CAIC Annex was renamed as CSC Panganiban Campus.

The conversion of CSC into a university formally started on March 29, 2011 when House Bill No. 4170 was filed during the First Regular Session of the 15th Congress of the Philippines.
