THE CITY of Malabon University will close down seven programs in a bid to regain institutional recognition from the Commission on Higher Education.

CMU said that after losing its free education benefits from the government for failing to submit documents, the dissolution of programs that has no government recognition is needed.

More than 1,000 students are expected to be affected by the closure.

These programs are psychology, industrial security management, multimedia arts, business analytics, cybersecurity, electronics engineering and computer engineering.

No enrollees for these programs will be accepted starting the second semester of the Academic Year 2022-2023.

Students enrolled in these programs will be transferred to programs with government recognition or to a different school where they will be directed to start college anew.

“In order to regain back UniFAST benefits, CMU must attain institutional recognition, wherein government recognition and certificate of program compliance are needed to be attained by its existing programs, which the previous administration failed to secure,” CMU said in a statement.

“These changes are part of the transition that CMU needs to undergo towards a better, honorable, and indigenous CMU,” it added.
