REGISTRATION BULLETIN for this semester here.

Registration flowchart for undergraduate students here.

Regular registration period is from January 9-12, 2017. The registration period has been extended until January 18, 2017 (Wednesday). All other events such as the Start of Classes, Withdrawal of Enlistments, and Change of Matriculation deadline remain per UPD Academic Calendar.


1. For those who would be doing self advising (students with continuing/regular status), you may secure the "Self-Advising" stamp starting Aug 1, Monday. You may also get a copy of the underloading acknowledgment form tomorrow. However, you can only be auto-enlisted on your designated day (i.e. Aug 2 onwards) as CRS checks for your status (e.g. graduating, freshman, regular, etc.).

2. You can only be advised by your designated registration adviser, unless there is an official announcement regarding temporary transfer of advising duties.

3. Transferees and shiftees who are on their first year (first sem) this semester will be advised by Dr. Tess de Leon in Rm 409.

4. 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 2016-2017. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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)

7. There will be no enlistment/validation holding area in Rm 120 anymore as we are doing auto-enlistment rather than the traditional e-prerog/enlistment procedure. You may check your CRS account every now and again to see if you have already been auto-enlisted.

8. 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.

9. You are tasked to print your Form 5A.

10. Room assignments:

(i) Rm 429: Validation and checking; Stamping of "Self-Advising".
(ii) Rm 123: Assessment holding area (there shall be NO students/bystanders around Rm 220)
(iii) Advisers' rooms: will be posted at EEE 1st floor lobby
