The New Era Educational Institute (NEEI) was formally opened on June 17, 1975 by virtue of GPR No. 232, Series of 1975 issued by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports (now known as the Department of Education). NEEI initially offered secondary education in Echague (now Carlos Palanca Street), Quiapo, Manila. On June 6, 1977, pursuant to the requirements of the Corporation Law (Republic Act 1459), NEEI was declared as a private, non-stock, non-profit, non-sectarian educational institution. The year 1978 saw the opening of NEEI’s collegiate course offerings at the Evangelical College (EVCO) building along Don Mariano Marcos (now Commonwealth) Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City. Upon the conferment of degrees to 12 collegiate graduates in 1981, the school became known as the New Era College (NEC). On May 10, 1986, the permanent building for NEC was inaugurated, situated in a wide expanse of land along St. Joseph Street, Milton Hills Subdivision, Diliman, (now known as #9 Central Avenue, New Era) Quezon City.
