General Information

Host Institution

The beginnings of the Tarlac State University (TSU) are synchronous with the beginning of public education in the heartland of Central Luzon, Philippines, as it was established in 1906. The early and dominant image of TSU among the people of Tarlac was being a trade school, until the onset of the Second World War in 1946. In 1959, it was converted by the Congress of the Philippines into the Tarlac School of Arts and Trades (TSAT). In 1965, through the passage of Republic Act 4337, TSAT acquired its full-fledged status as a college, the Tarlac College of Technology (TCT). In October 13, 1989, Her Excellency Corazon C. Aquino, President of the Republic of the Philippines signed into law Republic Act of 6764, converting TCT into the Tarlac State University (TSU).The University has at present three (3) campuses within the vicinity of the Tarlac City. The Main Campus is a 1.2-hectare property situated along Romulo Boulevard at the Tarlac City proper. The San Isidro Campus is an 8-hectare land. The Villa Lucinda Campus, a 10-hectare land, is 3 kilometers away from the Main Campus.


TSU at present has a population of around twenty thousand (20,000) students enrolled in the 11 Colleges of the University in the different graduate and undergraduate degree programs in Engineering, Education, Arts and Social Sciences, Science, Business Administration and Accountancy, Architecture and Fine Arts, Computer, Technology, Nursing, Public Administration, Law and Criminal Justice of Education.


 All program offerings of the University are approved by the Philippine Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and majority of  programs passed the Level 1,Level 2, Level 3 and Level 4 accreditation status by the Accrediting Agency for Chartered Colleges and Universities of the Philippines (AACCUP), Inc. TSU is also granted Institutional Accreditation Status by AACCUP Inc. The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has given accreditation to TSU to accept foreign students, thus the University caters not only to local students but also to foreign students. The University was also awarded Center of Development by the Commission on Higher Education on its Electrical Engineering program and Teacher Education Program. The University earned the second highest level classification, Level 3A, among the State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in the Philippines. The University is recognized as one of the top ten performing SUCs in the country. 


The latest recognition given to the University was being awarded the Integrated Management System  (IMS) certification, which includes the tripartite international award of the ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management System, ISO 14001: 2015 Environmental Management System, OHSAS 18001: 2007 Occupational Health and Safety Assessment System.   The Tarlac State University holds the distinction to be  the first State University in the Philippines to be awarded this status and privilege.


The University continues its mission to promote and sustain the offering of quality and relevant programs in higher and advanced education ensuring equitable access to education for people empowerment, professional development, and global competitiveness. This mission is consistent with the University vision to be a premier University in the Asia Pacific Region of the world.
