Reminders:

  1. All freshmen and graduating students must be pre-advised. Check CRS if your adviser has already pre-advised you online. If you are ok with the online advise, you may print your Form 5A and start with enlistment by January 8, Monday. If you want to have changes made in your Form 5A, please contact your adviser via email or in person to make the necessary changes before printing your Form 5A.
  2. Continuing/regular students do not need to be pre-advised. If you do want to be pre-advised, contact your adviser via email or in person to pre-advise you. This can be done manually (adviser can write on your printed Form 5A) or online (adviser will use the online advising module of CRS). Enlistment for continuing/regular students will start on January 9, Tuesday.
  3. For those who would be doing self advising (students with continuing/regular status), you may secure the "Self-Advising" stamp starting January 8, Monday, in Rm 120. However, you can only be auto-enlisted on your designated day (i.e. Jan 9 onwards) as CRS checks for your status (e.g. graduating, freshman, regular, etc.).
  4. You can only be advised by your designated registration adviser, unless there is an official announcement regarding temporary transfer of advising duties.
  5. Transferees and shiftees who are on their first year (first sem) this semester will be advised by Dr. Tess de Leon.
  6. If you are underloading this semester AND you are not graduating this semester, you should submit documents to support your reason for underloading until the end of the 2nd semester of AY 2017-2018. To justify underloading, the submission of pertinent documents to the Office of the University Registrar through the Office of the College Secretary is required as follows:
    • for health reasons — medical certification to be confirmed by the University Health Service;

    • for unavailability of subjects — certification by the scheduler to be noted by the adviser AND copy of schedule of classes;

    • for employment — copy of payroll and appointment papers indicating, among others, the duration of employment.

  7. If you are on your last semester (graduating this semester) and is underloading, there is no need to submit supporting documents. Make sure that your adviser indicates in your Form 5 (during post-advising) that you have no more units left under the "Reason for underloading" section and that your adviser countersigns it.
  8. Overloading means that you are taking either more than 18 lecture units OR more than 21 units (including laboratory units). You will only be allowed to overload if you passed all subjects in the previous semester and have a valid reason for overloading. You need to accomplish an overload form with with a photocopy of Form 5 and grades of all subjects in the previous semester. The form must be approved by the Dean before you will be allowed to enroll in more than the allowed number of lecture/lab units per semester.
  9. All graduating students - both undergraduate and graduate – should submit their application for candidacy for graduation within the registration period. This includes those who applied in previous semesters but did not graduate (you have to re-apply) and those who are enrolling the remaining units of their 300 or 400 course this semester (even if you are not yet sure if you will be able to successfully defend your theses or not).
  10. To help in your finances, you may take advantage of the services, like student loans, from the Office of Scholarships and Student Services (OSSS) at 3rd floor Vinzons Hall.
  11. Room assignments:
