01 March, 2021

  • Late Registrations – from 10:30 AM until 2:00 PM of 06 March, 2021.
  • Late Registration will incur a Late Registration Fee.
During the REGULAR and LATE REGISTRATION PERIODS, students can register anytime, EXCEPT during the System Maintenance Time everyday from 7:00 PM until 8:00 PM.  During this time, the registration module becomes unavailable.


  1. Most conditions that prevent a student from regular online registration are suspended, including the submission of enrollment requirements covered by promissory notes, and completion of the ORSEM.  Tenure and residency issues continue to be relaxed for this enrollment.
  2. To see the available courses and schedules, go to your Student Access Module then click on the Section Offering,  select your MBA program, then select your courses, taking care to avoid schedule conflicts.
Conflict Checking will still be enforced.  Classes are scheduled twice a week, with the
expectation of both synchronous and asynchronous delivery.  For this reason, schedule
conflicts will still be flagged and disallowed.
  1. Print out your assessment form. You will need this if you opt to pay your fees via over-the-counter bank deposits.  For seamless payment, paying online via credit card is recommended.  You may click here to see the procedure.
  2. If you are paying online via bank transfer/teller, you need to complete your registration 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 will reflect on the next banking day.  Thus, registered courses will be put on hold until the Cashier’s Office receive the respective Bank Payment Reports and confirms the enrollment.


  1. 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 January 28.
  2. Your request 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.


  1. 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 “stops the clock” for that term/trimester only if the student is not currently enrolled for that term/trimester.
  2. Withdrawal. Students may withdraw from some or 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.
  3. 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/trimester with its corresponding effects on retention.
  4. 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 April 22 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 the deadlines indicated  This will be determined on a case-to-case basis.
  5. 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.
  6. Online classes will start on 01 March, 2021.
The deadline for Withdrawal and filing of Leaves of Absence (LOA) is 27 March, 2021


  1. 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, the ORSEM is scheduled on May 29, 2021.
  2. 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.
