Goldenstate College (formerly Goldenstate Institute)
is a private educational institution in South Cotabato
. It started operations in 1992, offering short term industrial courses
. In its first year, it only had 160 students and 29 instructors. As these numbers increased over the years so did the institute's program offerings. By 2001, Goldenstate was offering a bachelor's degree course in Hotel and Restaurant Management and Commerce. It was the same year when the institute earned its college status. At present, GSC has campuses in General Santos City, Koronadal City,
and San Pablo City, Laguna.
Goldenstate College General Santos City
currently offers undergraduate programs in Business and Management, Hotel and Restaurant Services, Pharmacy, Midwifery, Information Technology, Teacher Education,
and Liberal Arts.
Additionally, the school has a Senior High School program, particularly providing selected strands in the Academic
and the Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (TVL)
tracks. Just like its starting years, GSC has tech-voc courses
available for students who wish to earn their National Certificate (NC).
