Overall, results show that the Organization and Administration, and the Guidance Program were considered good. The future seems to be promising for the SAS in the UEP system. The sustainability of programs rated Excellent is a morale-booster for the student services providers and those rated below this level can be regarded as positive motivation that can propel the SAS to come at par with attainable world-class SAS programs.
