The Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST) officially became the University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines (USTSP) after Republic Act No. 10919 which was approved by Congress July 27, 2015 lapsed into law last July 21, 2016 without the signature of the President of the Philippines in accordance with Article IV, Section 27 (1) of the Constitution.

In due time, we might see changes in the signage and logos displayed in the campus.

See below the first page of RA 10919.


In Section 4 below, it states USTSP’s main campus will be at Alubijid, Misamis Oriental. It can be recalled that the Alubijid campus has been on the drawing board for some time already (Details HERE).


The Claveria-based Misamis Oriental State College of Agriculture and Technology (MOSCAT) was amalgamated into USTSP. Likewise, existing MUST campuses in Jasaan and Alubijid as well as the Balubal Community College will become part of the USTSP.

See final page below showing the signatories. Note encircled date and notation at the bottom.
