Cagayan de Oro College – Phinma Education Network (COC-Phinma) has formally filed it’s application with the Commission on Higher Education for University Status and the change of name of the school to Cagayan de Oro University- Phinma.
This was recently posted on COC-Phinma’s facebook account. Accordingly, the school administration took some time for the application fue to numerous documents to be prepared for the application.
The image shown above is the front cover of COC-Phinma’s application. It says: University Status: COC’s continuing quest for excellence!
If the application is approved, this will be Cagayan de Oro’s 5th university after Xavier University (XU), Liceo de Cagayan University (LDCU), Capitol University (CU) and Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST). Some friends say that Capitol University originally applied for the name “Cagayan de Oro University” but COC-Phinma objected as it was also in the process of applying for university status with the same name.
