Message Regarding Appeals/Reconsiderations for Admission

Dear Appellants,

The Office of the University Registrar UP Manila has received a total of 1,455 appeals/reconsiderations for admission this Academic Year 2020-2021.

For those whose UPGs are below the cut-off, we regret to inform you that we really do not accept appellants below our cut-off of 2.580 for non-UP personnel dependents and 2.650 for UP personnel dependents.

As you may have already learned from our previous announcement, we only have about 50 slots available which means that we will only be able to accommodate around 3% of the appeals, as of now. But, depending on the turn out, we may be able to accommodate another 3-5% more of the appeals after the enrollment. This means that appellants with UPGs lower than 2.250, which is the 8% cut-off, will have a very slim chance, or no chance at all, of being placed in any degree program. Even those with UPGs higher than 2.250 are not sure of getting into a degree program. We therefore suggest that you pursue your other options.

For those who indicated Doctor of Dental Medicine as a choice in their appeals (and if their UPGs are 2.450 or higher), please wait for the College of Dentistry to contact you for the dexterity exam and interview. The college will determine the number of appellants that will be considered to take the dexterity exam.

Due to the limited workforce and the demands of other tasks at hand, we would only be able to inform those whose appeals will be considered in the coming days and weeks. Also, for this reason, we are asking for your understanding because we are having difficulty answering numerous e-mails sent and phone calls made to our office.

Thank you very much.

1. New Instructions Regarding First Year Enrollment Under the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ).

2. Addendum

3. Message from the Office of the University Registrar.
****DETAILS are in the READ MORE SECTION********

1. New Instructions Regarding First Year Enrollment Under the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ)

The regular enrollment of first year students will go on as scheduled from August 5, 2020 to August 12, 2020. Due to the difficulty of submitting hard copies of the entrance credentials because of the MECQ, online submission within the specified dates is encouraged. Hard copies should be submitted once the quarantine is eased. Please submit the scanned copies within the specified dates (whether complete or incomplete) via email to upm-our@up.edu.ph with the same subject as in the original instruction with the addition of the degree program such as “UPM Entrance Credentials 2020-2021-BS Biology.”

Note: No need to worry if the hard copies were already sent and sending the scanned copies online will not be possible. There will always be someone in the office to receive the hard copies.

2. Addendum and Clarifications on the Enrollment of First Year Students

1. The regular enrollment period of those already assigned with degree programs is from August 5 – 12, 2020. This means that we should receive the hard and/or soft copies (may be all hard or soft copies or combination depending on the availability) of the entrance credentials during these specified dates. A communication from our office will be sent if we do not receive anything after August 12, 2020.

2. Regarding the RSA contracts, all three copies (whether all downloaded with original signatures or photocopied from the original) should be notarized.

Thank you very much. Keep safe and well.

3. Message from the Office of the University Registrar
This message is both for clarification and appeal to everyone concerned. The office at this point is involved in many processes including shifting and transferring, First Year Students Admission and Appeals, Graduation, and the provision of our basic services. The staff are currently reporting on a skeleton workforce and are working on the numerous requests for documents we received during the lockdown. At this point, only 1 or 2 are assigned to answer the numerous emails and phone calls that we receive and it is quite impossible for us to answer all of them. We are therefore appealing to everyone to understand our situation as we try our best to provide our services during these challenging times.

Here are the status of the different processes:

1. On Shifting and Transferring
All applications are being screened and recorded in a database that will be sent to the colleges for the final screening. Confirmatory emails on the receipt of the applications are sent once the applications are recorded and this will continue for the next 1-2 weeks before transmittal of the database to the colleges. We are therefore looking at the 3rd or 4th week of August for the release of the results in time for the regular enrolment on the first week of September.

2. On the Admission Process
The Office of Admissions extended the confirmation of successful applicants until July 21 and reached out to those who did not reply to the offer of the University. This delayed the assignment of slots to the DPWAS qualifiers which we finished just this week. We were not able to accommodate all requests for placement into BS courses because we do not have available slots for all. We prioritized the DOST scholars but still not all were assigned to their desired degree programs because we have more scholars as against the available slots.

Enrollment of first year students will start on August 5 onwards and will be done by our Student Records Evaluators (SRE) upon receipt of the entrance credentials from the students (please see First Year Enrollment Instructions in the OUR website).

Regarding the appeals/reconsideration process, we received more than a thousand applications which is way above what we expected. We will not be able to acknowledge all these applications but rest assured that we are checking and recording all of them. But just to give a general picture, around 90% of UPM successful applicants confirmed their slots and UPM was assigned 44 slots for the automatic admission under the Iskolar ng Bayan Act. Meaning there will be less than 50 remaining slots that the appellants will compete for. We are currently recording the appeals/reconsiderations applications and we will have to do an initial screening to determine the applications that will be sent to the degree programs for the final screening. An email notification will be sent to those who will be cut from the list starting August 7, 2020.
