To improve and ease the difficulties during the enrolment period, the Office of the Registrar has adopted changes in the enrolment process especially involving the dissolution and fusion of subjects this semester, AY 2013-2014 according to the Acting Registrar, Prof. Jerson N. Orejudos.

In an interview, Orejudos explained that the needs of students change during the enrolment period every semester hence the need for dynamic policies that would respond immediately to specific concerns. He further said that his office aims for a “win-win” solution in every issue.

“Basically, the enrolment process is still similar. However, there are major changes when it comes to adding more slots when a class is already filled up,” Orejudos said.

In the past, the controller can add slots to classes that are already full. However, starting this semester, a written request from the Department Chair should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office so that slots can be added to the already filled up classes.

In the case when a subject is dissolved, the Chair will need to also write the Registrar about its dissolution and of the students to be transferred to (open sections)” Orejudos said. The letter should contain the names of the affected students and the corresponding sections where they would be transferred. He added that in such cases, the students will no longer be required to secure load revision forms, hence, saving them time, effort and money.

Wala ng mataas na pila (There will be no more long queues),” he said.

The students for the Graduate programs will also be affected by the said changes.

Meanwhile, the Registrar’s Office reported a total of 12, 357 enrolees, a drop of 866 from last semester’s total enrolment figure of 13, 233.

Orejudos said that the drop during the second semester is “normal”.

Every second semester, the number of students always drops. This attrition is brought about by students graduating in midyear and those who fail in the previous semester, he added. –Amado C. Guinto, Jr. for OC-OPI
