VMGOMidBRIEF HISTORY

 

The San Jose community college (SJCC) was established under resolution no. 10s’ 1969 of the municipal government of San Jose. The college was established to cater to poor but deserving students in the community, neighboring municipalities and provinces. Courses offered were purely vocational in nature with midwifery as one of their courses. Other courses offered were AB course (2-year preparatory), medical secretarial, practical electricity and auto-diesel mechanic. The municipal governments were to subsidized the operations of the college. However, they were not able to comply. Hence, the college depended on the tuition fees of the students for their operation.

Improvements were to be needed as required by the establishment of republic act 7392, midwifery law of the Philippines. The instructors could not also be given the minimum salary due them.

At the start of the academic year 2000-2001, an agreement was reached between SJCC and occidental Mindoro National College (OMNS) under the supervision of the commission on higher education (CHED). The college was to be absorbed by OMNC.
