On May 2002, VSU implemented RA 9163 or the National Service Training Program (NSTP) Act of 2001, which became law on January 23, 2002. VSU then created the National Service Training Program Office (NSTPO) to supervise the implementation of the program and its component programs, namely: Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC), the Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS) and Literacy Training Service (LTS). A student can then take any of the three programs for his/her training as a requirement for graduation. However, due to limited trained faculty for literacy, VSU implemented only the ROTC and CWTS. Both ROTC and CWTS component of the National Service Training Program (NSTP) implemented the program in accordance with the approved Program of Instruction. Trainings were conducted at the designated rooms and other venues appropriate for the number of trainees per training day. For ROTC, demonstration and practical exercises were done at the VSU parade ground or oval.

During the past years VSU-ROTC has been awarded as the BEST ROTC UNIT of REGION VIII during the Regional Annual Administrative and Tactical Inspection (RAATI). Since 2002 there was no national annual administrative and tactical evaluation, the VSU ROTC Unit is still the National Best ROTC Unit. CWTS on the other hand, has been recognized as active partners in development by the host barangays in Baybay City. Host barangays since 2003 until second semester of SY 2005-2006 includes; 13 Barangays in Baybay, Leyte (Candadam, Gabas, Guadalupe, Pangasugan, Patag, Marcos, San Agustin, Bunga, Cogon, Hibunawan, Maganhan, Gakat, San Isidro), and 1 in Albuera, Leyte (Tabgas) respectively.
