Registration and Enrollment Process for Regis Term 4, AY 2020-21
21 April, 2021
|MEMO FOR||:||The AGSB Community|
|REY R. REYES, APS Registrar|
|SUBJECT||:||Registration and Enrollment Process for Regis Term 4, AY 2020-21|
|There is a new process for Registration and Enrollment which shall still be implemented entirely online.|
Starting Term 4 of the Regis program, 4, a PRE-REGISTRATION period will be added to the enrollment process. AGSB is implementing a pre-registration in order that students can be better guaranteed of slots in the subjects they identified during the pre-registration period.
Even with this change and in continuing compliance with government and University guidelines relative to the COVID-19 pandemic, AGSB shall continue to adopt an entirely online process for pre-registration, registration and enrollment. Conditions that prevent a student from regular online registration such as the submission of enrollment requirements covered by promissory notes, tenure and residency issues, and completion of the ORSEM, are still suspended.
The following policies shall govern the Pre-Registration, Registration and Enrollment Process:
PRE-REGISTRATION (April 26- 28, 2021)
- The pre-registration period for the incoming Regis term shall be from April 26 – April 28, 2021, from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
- During the pre-registration phase, students will be able to see all the courses offered, including their schedules, for purposes of enlistment. The names of faculty will not be available at this time. Since schedules are determined with the expectation of both synchronous and asynchronous delivery, students cannot select classes with conflicting or overlapping schedules. Regis students cannot take more than 2 courses during a term.
- Students who anticipate conditions that will impede their ability to pre-register (i.e. curricular exceptions, overload, probationary status, etc.) may file their requests for exemption with the departments from April 22 to 24. Approved requests will be included in their pre-registration via Direct Registration.
- Process. Go to your Student Access Module then click on the Section Offering,select your MBA program, then select your courses. There will be no limits declared on class sizes for the courses offered. There will be no closed sections resulting from maximum class sizes during the pre-registration period.
- A student may change, add, or remove any enlistment without having to worry about closed sections as long as this is done within the pre-registration period. While this is similar to the process followed during previous enrollments, students cannot proceed to Assessment and Payment until these are enabled during the regular registration period.
- At the end of the pre-registration period, courses with less than 10 enlistments will be dissolved. Those who enlisted in dissolved courses will be notified by e-mail at least 1 day before the start of the regular enrollment period.
REGULAR REGISTRATION (8:00 AM on May 6, until 2:00 PM on May 8)
- Those who availed of pre-registration enlistment will see their registered courses in the Student Access Module. From there, students can print their assessments and pay thru any of the payment channels available. The only time an enlistment will be missing is when the course was dissolved (see #5 PRE-REGISTRATION).
- During the regular registration period, all the courses shown in the Student Access Module will contain the number of remaining open slots.
- Students who have not availed of pre-registration may still register, subject to the availability of open slots. At this time, students may still change, add, or remove any of their pre-registered courses. HOWEVER, those who wish to change or add courses can only do so from courses with open slots.
- Process. Go to the Student Access Module then print out your assessment form. This will be needed by students who opt to pay their fees via over-the-counter bank deposits. For seamless payment, paying online via credit card is recommended. Click here to see the procedure.
- If you are paying online via bank transfer/teller, you need to complete your payment not later than 3:00 PM to avoid the bank’s payment cut-off. For details, you may refer to the Off-Campus Tuition Payment Options and Procedures. Payments made using this option are validated the next banking day. Thus, registered courses will be put on hold until the Cashier’s Office is able to validate the payment and confirm the enrollment.
- Late Enrollment is scheduled from 10:30 am on May 10, and ends at 2:00 pm on May 15. All the processes allowed during the regular enrollment period apply during the late enrollment period. The assessments during the late enrollment period will include a late enrollment fee.
- The process for petitioning for the opening of a course by a group of students remains the same as in previous enrollments and can be addressed to the Chairs starting on May 6.
- As in previous enrollments, there is a System Maintenance Time every day from 7:00 PM until 8:00 PM. During this time, the registration module becomes unavailable.
ASSISTED / DIRECT REGISTRATION (May 6-15)
- For those who cannot register online due to curricular exceptions, cross-enrollment requests, probationary status, over-tenure status, or returning from LOA, among others, simply fill-out the Request for Direct Registration online form at the Registrar Online Services webpage, which opens 10:00 AM on May 6.
- Requests will be processed during the support services schedule (indicated below) on a first come, first served basis. To see the status of your request, simply click on Monitor DR approval status on the same webpage. Please be reminded that only requests made through this online facility will be processed. No requests or follow-ups through email will be entertained.
|Support Services will be available Mondays through Fridays from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.|
WITHDRAWALS AND LEAVES OF ABSENCE
- A Leave of Absence (LOA) is filed when there is an expectation that students will not resume classes in the next or subsequent terms/trimesters. Filed LOAs usually indicate the duration, and when students intend to return. The LOA extends or “stops the clock” on the 5-year Maximum Residency as contained in the student handbook,.A LOA filed before the start of a term/Trimester “stops the clock” for that term/trimester. A LOA filed after the start of a term/Trimester and before the deadline “stops the clock” for that term/trimester only if the student is not currently enrolled for that term/trimester.
- Withdrawal. Students may withdraw from some or all of their classes within a prescribed withdrawal period. Withdrawing from all enrolled courses (total withdrawal) after classes have started does not automatically make the withdrawal a LOA. The effect of an approved withdrawal is a WP (Withdrawal with Permission) grade in the Transcript of Record. A student cannot have a grade entry in the TOR (effect of enrollment) and be on LOA (not enrolled) at the same time.Withdrawals filed until May 15 shall be entitled to 80% Tuition Refund. Those filed after May 15, even if approved, are no longer entitled to refunds per handbook policy.
- The policy on attendance is still enforced. Students who have completed their enrollments but will be unable to attend classes for justifiable reasons may apply for withdrawal subject to the refund policies contained in the student handbook.If students stop attending classes without filing a withdrawal, they will get failing grades (either 0.0 or UW) at the end of the term with its corresponding effects on retention.
- While there is a deadline for the filing of withdrawals or LOAs, AGSB continues to be guided by the need for leniency in the implementation of these policies as contained in the Dean’s April 22, 2020 memo. Therefore, if the reason for the withdrawal or LOA is COVID related, the application will be considered and approved even if this is filed past the deadlines indicated This will be determined on a case-to-case basis.
- Approved withdrawals or LOAs filed for COVID related reasons effectively extend the student’s Residency Period on top of the other provisions in the student handbook.
- Online classes will start on 10 May 2021.
|The deadline for Withdrawal and filing of Leaves of Absence (LOA) is June 5, 2021.|
ORIENTATION SEMINAR (ORSEM)
- All new students / first-time enrollees are required to attend the next Orientation Seminar (ORSEM) to be scheduled by the AGSB Student Council. This applies to those who were new students during the last enrollment. For current students who have not attended this yet, please wait for the schedule of the next ORSEM.
- The ORSEM attendance is a requirement for students to register online in subsequent enrollments. Old students who have not yet attended this are advised to comply. After this enrollment period, AGSB will re-impose the ORSEM requirement as a pre-condition to online registration.
