National Service Training Program (NSTP) is one of the programs under the University’s Office of the Community Extension Services. This is a constitutionally mandated course or program designed to equip college students with skills and experiences for their meaningful involvement in nation building. The training sessions during the first semester are designed to prepare students for their immersion in communities in the second semester by providing them the basic concepts and theories needed for doing community work.


The University offers three components:

  • Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS)
  • Literacy Training Service (LTS)
  • Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC)
