The History of University of Saint Louis Tuguegarao 

University of Saint Louis Tuguegarao (USL) was established through the request of His Excellency Msgr. Teodulfo Domingo to have a Catholic school for boys in Tuguegarao in 1965. The request was approved by the CICM Superior General, Fr. Charles Pieters. During its opening, the university has 138 enrolled boys, composed of two sections for 1st year and one section for the 2nd year. The institution grew and opened courses in Civil Engineering, Commerce, Liberal Arts, and Junior Secretarial course. In 1971, the school started to accept girls. The institution was finally granted its university status in 2002 by the Commission on Higher Education (CHEd).
