Please be informed that as of this date, Colegio de lIigan of lIigan City has pending application since 2019 for its institutional recognition. In effect, the four (4) programs currently offered by the institution, namely: BS Criminology, BS Social Work, BS Midwifery, and BS Agriculture have not been issued with Certificate of Program Compliance (COPC).
