MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has allowed 24 colleges and universities to conduct limited face-to-face classes starting the second semester of School Year 2020-2021.

CHED said in a statement Friday that selected allied health-related degree programs such as Medicine, Nursing, Medical Technology or Medical Laboratory Science, Physical Therapy, Midwifery, and Public Health were prioritized to conduct limited face-to-face classes.


It also said that this move will enable students to achieve key learning outcomes on specialized laboratory courses and hospital-based clinical clerkship, and provide additional manpower to the country’s health system as the country faces a pandemic.

Colleges and universities allowed to resume limited in-person classes are the following:


  • Mariano Marcos State University – Batac (Region I)
  • St. Louis University (CAR)
  • Our Lady of Fatima University – City of San Fernando (Region III)

The above-mentioned higher education institutions (HEIs) already complied with the “stringent retrofitting and health standards” imposed by CHED along with the Department of Health (DOH), and the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, according to chairperson Prospero De Vera III.

“These HEIs have fully complied with the CHED-DOH guidelines and have been inspected by CHED and their LGUs so they can now bring their 3rd and 4th year students for hands-on training and laboratory classes in a limited face-to-face system,” the CHED chief said.
