The PLSP Graduate School held its first comprehensive examination at the PLSP University Library on March 11 and 12, 2023, and was successfully completed its first round of final oral defenses in the PLSP Audio-Visual Room on March 18, 2023.
Graduate students took the face-to-face comprehensive examination for two days, the first of which was spent on core and cognate and the second on major courses. Each course received an hour, but MOR and statistics received two hours each.

Pre-oral defense proceedings were last held in February of 2023, with the concurrent university president, Dr. Sigfredo C. Adajar, serving as the over-all chair of the oral examination.

Twenty-nine professional students—eight from the Master of Arts in Education, twelve from the Master of Business Administration, and nine from the Master of Public Administration—with the first university president, Engr. Arthur B. Almario as chair of the oral examination, Dr. Preciosa D. Villacruel, Dean of the PLSP Graduate School; and representatives from the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation.
