St. Paul University Quezon City, popularly known as St. Paul QC, is a Catholic women's college in Quezon City, Philippines. It is one of the more popular women's colleges in the Philippines.

History

The college was established as St. Paul College Quezon City Branch in 1946. The founders were the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres (SPC), a congregation founded in Chartres, France, by Father Louis Chavet in 1698.

On 29 October 1904, seven Sisters of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres, France who were coming from their mission in Vietnam established the first SPC foundation in the Philippines in Dumaguete, Negros Oriental. The seven sisters were Mother Marthe de St. Paul, Superior, Sr. Marie Louise du Sacre Couer, Sr. Ange Marie, Sr. Anne de la Croix, Sr. Charles de Genes, Sr. Catherine, and Sr. Josephine.

The grade school was initially offered to boys and girls. Eventually, the high school and college levels were exclusively offered to women, making the school a full women's college in 1966.Official prospectus, St. Paul University Quezon City, 2006.]

The college enjoys a full autonomy status from the Commission on Higher Education of the Philippines. It is also awarded a Level III Accreditation (the second highest possible level) by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (PAASCU).Official prospectus, St. Paul University Quezon City, 2006.]
