It is an educational assessment scheme that recognizes knowledge, skills & prior learning obtained from non-formal (deliberate and extended by the individual through involvement in systematized workplace-based exercise, non-credit courses and workshops – the accomplishment of which does not lead in receiving official course credit) and informal (subsidiary learning that upshots from life experiences, workplace-based learning, volunteer activities, self-directed learning, family responsibilities, travels, immersions, and others). Moreover, the ETEEAP is available only to Filipino citizens.

The University has four deputized colleges that can award degrees thru ETEEAP, namely: BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION, CRIMINOLOGY, ENGINEERING and ARCHITECTURE.

The UV ETEEAP just recently received the Government Authority to offer additional programs for Bachelor of Elementary Education and Bachelor of Secondary Education. (GA No. 004 series of 2017)
