Rationale for CHED Priority Courses

The CHED Priority programs aim to direct/steer higher education qualified applicants for financial assistance under the CMSPs to enroll in public or private higher education institutions (HEIs) offering recognized/authorized undergraduate priority programs.

The determination of the programs was the result of the discussions and deliberations conducted by the Technical Working Group (TWG) Members composed of representatives from CHED and UniFAST Secretariat in coordination with the Resource persons from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Science and Technology (DOST), National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), in line with the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2023-2028 on manpower demands based on the Labor Market Information (LMI) Report of DOLE.

Scholars who are enrolled in any of the priority programs listed in this CMO may avail of the benefits under the CMSP provided that the financial assistance under the Tertiary Education Subsidy (TES)-UniFAST will not be duplicated.

In the case of scholars with financial assistance under the CMSP who are already enrolled in SUCs and LUCs and enjoying the benefits of Free Tuition and Other school fees (TOSF) under R.A. No. 10931, they can still be granted financial assistance in the form of stipend the amount of which would depend on the type of CMSPs they were able to qualify.
