The University of Southeastern Philippines was established by virtue of Batas Pambansa Blg. 12 signed on December 14, 1978. On the first meeting of the Board of Regents of the University held on April 25, 1979, the creation of the College of Arts and Sciences was approved.

Board Resolution No. 28, s. 1981 also approved the offering of the following academic programs in the College: AB English, AB Political Science, BS Mathematics, and BS Biology.
