The Professional Regulation Commission reported a 39.43% passing rate (250 passers out of 634) who took the LLE in 12 locations across the Philippines. Mandated by Republic Act No. 9246, librarianship is a regulated profession in the country, with the LLE as a requirement for registration.

With this feat, the UP SLIS continues to lead in LIS education as the CHED Center of Excellence in Library and Information Science. Congratulations to our new registered librarians!
