The study aimed to assess the influence of instructional and administrative supervision on institutions' performance in private higher education in South Central Mindanao in terms of program accreditation and passing the national licensure examination.

This research utilized ex-post facto research and the descriptive-correlation method. The research respondents were the 410 school heads. The collected data were analyzed using SPSS.

School heads demonstrated adequate instructional and administrative supervision of the teaching-learning process in private higher education institutions. Moreover, higher education programs are primarily level 1 and level 2 accredited. Many of these programs are primary education, engineering, accountancy and business, nursing, and graduate degree programs. The majority of the HEIs had 50% and below the passing rate in the various programs that require licensure examinations for the last three years (2014, 2015, and 2016), while few HEIs had a passing rate of more than 50%. HEIs passers were mostly graduate in education, accountancy, nursing, medical technology, engineering, radiologic technology, pharmacy, social work, physical therapy, nutrition, and dietetics.

Although higher education institutions obtained lower accredited programs, instructional and professional development supervision are good predictors of accreditation programs and licensure examination. Monitoring and leading activities are good predictors of program accreditation, while monitoring and organizing are good predictors of the licensure examination.

It is recommended that supervision must be sustained and strengthened among regulated HEIs to get their programs accredited and improve performance in the licensure examination.
