PRC requires schools to submit notarized lists of graduates


The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) reiterates the implementation of Commission Resolution No. 2008-475, requiring registrar of schools, colleges and universities to submit a certified and notarized list of graduates of courses or holders of degrees who are possible examinees of licensure examinations.

The list, noted by the President/Chairman of the Board of the academic institution, should indicate the following information/column in excel file format:

First Name (F_name), Last Name (L_name), Middle Name (M_name), Course, School, Date Graduated (Dt_grad), SO No. (SO_no), SO Date (SO_date)

It must also indicate whether the necessary transcript of records had been issued to the graduates/degree holders and be submitted both in hard and digitized copies to within fifteen (15) days from date of conferment.


The need to revive and enforce the policy is to ensure that all examinees taking the licensure examinations have been conferred with the required academic degrees by their academic institutions.

“Applicants for licensure examinations whose names do not appear in the list of graduates of courses or holders of degrees provided by the academic institution from which they represent to have finished their course or obtained their degree shall not be allowed to take the licensure examination”, the PRC said.
