Higher Education Institutions in the Philippines are being confronted by transformations caused by a process of interaction and integration among different nations driven by international commerce. With the modified global learning, colleges and universities have to capacitate themselves to offer quality degree programs which will be attuned to world class standards. The Commission on Higher Education in the Philippines has supported the development of higher education institutions by engaging them in the process of promoting a culture of international quality. The study conducted determines the compliance of the subject universities on certain standards of a university system as aligned to becoming a globalized structure. The study is anchored on the framework of Provus’ Discrepancy Model for Curriculum Evaluation Method. Based on this pattern, particular discrepancies can be determined and resolved between a pre-determined set of standards and what actually the current status of a particular area being studied. A survey was conducted to ascertain the extent of compliance of some university campuses to the standards of a University System. The respondents of this study are composed of university presidents, vice presidents for academic affairs, planning officers, deans, directors, heads, coordinators, faculty representatives and student Leaders from universities and colleges that belong to university systems. The continuing development plan crafted by the researcher could be a significant basis for other institutions to transform towards a globalized system.
