To register for First Sem AY 2021-2022, you will need to go through "Return From LOA" as indicated in your CRS tag. In this case, no need to go through the medical requirement (PEHA).

  7. Cross-Registration: As per As per OVPAA Memo 2021-122: Given the remote mode of teaching and learning, students may be allowed to cross-register course/s in other CUs, or other Universities if allowed, even if they are enrolled in their home unit, subject to university procedure on cross-registration. You may see more information on Cross-Registration from the OUR website here and application form. For College processing see http://bit.ly/CoEOnlineDocProcess #18.

Part 2: General Registration Notes ​

  1. The online registration process at EEEI is listed below. New normal registration process from OUR can be found here, with flowchart and swimlane.

    Step 1: Pre-advising with EEEI adviser. This step is required for graduating students [less than 42 units to complete the program] and optional for non-graduating students. Look-up your adviser from the list at https://tinyurl.com/EEEIAdvList and send them an email for pre-advising.

    Step 2Enlistment: through student's CRS module during pre-enlistment and waitlisting period, and offering unit or teacher's pre-rog during registration. You may cancel courses through your CRS account during pre-registration. Otherwise, if cancellation is not available anymore through your account, send an email to your registration adviser to request for the cancellation of the course.  You may also request for cancellation of EEEI courses through <enlistment@eee.upd.edu.ph>. For non-EEEI courses, request cancellation through offering unit. 

    Step 3Locking of enlistment: After you have enlisted in all your subjects, click on the "Lock Enlistment" button from your Student Registration module. If you need to have your enlistment unlocked to modify your enlistment, send an email to Mr. Rogelio Lagahit <rogelio.lagahit@eee.upd.edu.ph> to request for "Unlocking of Enlistment". If you choose, "Wait for Scholarship Tagging" in Step 5, you may unlock your own enlistment.

    Step 4Post-advising by the adviser: Send an email to your registration adviser to request for post-advising. Advisers are not automatically notified when you are queued for post-advising.

    Step 5: Queue for Assessment - If student is covered by a scholarship involving free tuition (e.g. RA-10931) or tuition fee reduction, student should check if he/she is already tagged for said scholarship. If student with a scholarship is not yet tagged, choose "Wait for  Scholarship Tagging". Otherwise, choose "Proceed to Assessment". If a student chooses to wait for scholarship tagging, the student will be given an option to either "Unlock for Enlistment" or "Proceed to Assessment".

    Step 6Assessment: After choosing "Proceed to Assessment" you are automatically queued for assessment. The assessors check the queue regularly so please give them a reasonable time to process the assessment before sending an email to follow-up. For regular assessment, the EEEI assessors are Ms. Veronica Centeno <veronica.centeno@eee.upd.edu.ph> and Mr. Rogelio Lagahit <rogelio.lagahit@eee.upd.edu.ph>. Students with scholarships other than RA 10931: Free Education Act, your assessment is with OUR. Students under RA-10931 (you may check tag for this in your CRS account), proceed to step 8.

    Step 7Payment: Only for those students not covered by RA10931/scholarship or who opt out. Follow instructions here on how to process payment. 

    Step 8Printing of Form 5 [optional]: At this point, you are officially registered already. You only need to print your Form 5 if needed. You can print your Form 5 through your CRS account using these instructions.

  2. Change of Matriculation (COM) Flowchart: Only students who are officially registered may process a COM.

    ​​Step 1Enlistment - Cancel / add classes in CRS through offering unit. For the cancellation of EEEI courses, send an email to your registration adviser to request the cancellation of the EEEI course, or through <enlistment@eee.upd.edu.ph>. For non-EEEI courses, request cancellation through offering unit. 

    Step 2Locking Enlistment -  Student locks the CoM Transaction using their CRS account. You will be automatically queued for COM post-advising.

    Step 3Post - advising - Send email to your registration adviser to request for COM advising (it is a different module from "regular" post-advising for registration). Upon advising, the CoM transaction will automatically queue for CoM Assessment. Should there be problems in the COM and you need to modify the enlistment, send email to Mr. Rogelio Lagahit <rogelio.lagahit@eee.upd.edu.ph> to have the Change-Mat transaction unlocked.  This means COM process is back to step 1. 

    Step 4Assessment - After COM post-advising you are automatically queued for COM assessment. The assessors check the COM queue regularly so please give them a reasonable time to process the assessment before sending an email to follow-up. For regular assessment, the EEEI assessors are Ms. Veronica Centeno <veronica.centeno@eee.upd.edu.ph> and Mr. Rogelio Lagahit <rogelio.lagahit@eee.upd.edu.ph>.

    Step 5: Payment (if applicable) - Follow instructions here on how to process payment.

  3. General Education (GE) courses:

    • ​​List of General Education courses can be found here. Taking more than the required number of GE courses is also highly discouraged as slots in GE courses are limited.

    • The following courses are equivalent. If you have completed one, you should not take the other as only the first one will be credited. For instance, if you have completed Comm 3, you should not take Speech 30 as only Comm 3 will be credited.

      1. Math 10 is equivalent to Math 1

      2. Speech 30 is equivalent to Comm 3

      3. Eng 13 is equivalent to  Eng 10

    • Eng 1 has been reclassified as a service course effective 01 September 2020, see OVCAA-MTTP 21-021. Students who took Eng 1 after 01 September 2020 cannot have Eng 1 credited as GE anymore (need CSAPG appeal).

    • Math 2 and Physics 10 are not allowed for EEEI students.      

    • Fil 40 can be credited as Wika 1 and vice versa (based on OVCAA Memo OVCAA-MTTP 20-045)

    • Students in the RGEP curriculum (five-year program), please check these instructions as well as OVCAA Memo on domain assignment of GE courses under the Diliman-21 GE Framework to determine if you have satisfied your GE requirements. 

    • Students in the four-year program must take the following core GE courses: ARTS 1, ENG 13 or SPEECH 30, FIL 40, KAS 1, PHILO 1, SOC SCI 1 or SOC SCI 2, STS 1 or DRMAPS. They additionally need to take two GE Elective courses. Any creditable General Education course (except for Math 2 and Physics 10) in this list may be credited as GE elective​.

  4. Electives

    • Any course not required in the program can be credited as free elective as long as the course prerequsites are met, except for the following:

      • General Education courses cannot be credited as free electives.

      • EEEI does not allow Eng1 to be credited as free elective in our undergraduate programs. 

    • Students who wish to take a language elective as their free elective must finish two consecutive courses of the same language course (e.g. French 10 and 11) for the elective to be credited.

    • The student must meet the course pre-requisite in order for the course to be credited as an elective.

    • There is no limit to the number of times a student may take an EE/ECE/CoE 197 course for credit.

    • Additional instructions for students in the five-year program and four-year program.

    • If a student takes more electives than those required in the program, the following procedure shall be used in selecting the electives to be credited and included in the computation of the weighted average grade:

      1. for students who did not shift programs, the required number of electives will be considered in chronological order;

      2. for students who shifted from one (1) program to another, the electives to be considered shall be selected according to the following order of priority:

        a) Electives taken in the program where the student is graduating will be selected in chronological order;
        b) Electives taken in the previous program and acceptable as electives in the second program will be selected in chronological order;
        c) Prescribed courses taken in the previous program but qualify as electives in the second program will be selected in chronological order.

  5. Notes on NSTP:

    • NSTP is required for all students, both male and female. 

    • Each student is required to take 3-unit courses for 2 semesters (6 units total). Except for ROTC, students may only take these courses after their first year.

    • The following are the components of the program:

      1. Military Training Service (MTS)

      2. Civic Welfare Training Services (CWTS)

      3. Literacy Training Services (LTS)

    • For strict compliance (will require CSAPG appeal otherwise)

      1. Students must take NSTP 1 first before NSTP 2.

      2. Students must take NSTP 1 and 2 from the same component. For example, if a student has taken ROTC or MS 1, he should take MS 2. If a student has taken LTS 1, he should take LTS 2. If a student has taken CWTS 1, he should take CWTS 2.

      3.  Both 3-unit courses must be from the same component of the program and from the same college, e.g. if the student took CWTS 1 from the College of Engineering, he/she must take CWTS 2 from the College of Engineering as well.

    • Engineering students are strongly encouraged to take CWTS from the College of Engineering.

    • If the student is a transferee and has taken NSTP 1 in his/her previous university, the student must write a letter of appeal to the CSAPG requesting for the previously taken NSTP 1 to be credited. This must be processed as soon as possible and can take any NSTP 2 course in UP Diliman. Otherwise, they are to take NSTP 1 again in the University.

  6. Physical Education (PE) courses: See here for more information.

  7. Underloading: The following undergraduate students are considered underload:

    • registered in less than 12 units during remote learning (15 units if regular semester, not remote learning)

    • in residence

    • registered with regular load at the start of the regular term (eg 12 units or more for 2nd Sem AY 2020-2021) but who DRP course(s) which will lead them to have less than  the minimum load remaining over the the semester (eg, total units enrolled - total units DRP < 12  units for remote learning, 15 units for normal semester ) 

      Students who are underload will be automatically disqualified from graduating with Latin honors, unless the semester of underloading is their semester of graduation and they have no more remaining units to take. Underloading is strongly discouraged as it has implications in satisfying the 24-unit rule. In certain cases, underloading can be justified. Fill-up the college underloading form and submit the pertinent document below within the semester of underloading to to EEEI through this form. The Institute will send the form and attachments to the Office of the College Secretary. 

      • ​for health reasons - medical certification to be confirmed by the University Health Service

      • for unavailability of subjects - certification by the adviser on no more courses to take due to seasonal course or not meeting the prerequisite

      • for employment - copy of payroll and appointment papers indicating, among others, the duration of employment

  8. Waiver of prerequisite is only applicable if the student has fully attended the prerequisite course in past semesters. Note that the institute rarely allows waiving of prerequisites. The student who is granted permission under these rules is required to enroll in the prerequisite course simultaneously with the course to which the former is a prerequisite, or immediately in the next semester. You may find instructions on how to apply for Waiver of Prerequisite at bit.ly/CoEOnlineDocProcess (alt link) item #11.

  9. Enrolling in subjects outside the curriculum is allowed up to a maximum of 6 units only per semester for enrichment/shifting reasons and must satisfy the following:

    • You must be in good academic standing and up-to-date with the requirements of their curriculum

    • You may enroll a maximum of 6 units outside their curriculum per semester as long as the total load does not result in overload for that semester

    • You must understand the consequences of enrolling in courses outside the curriculum, like added burden on academic load and possible delay in graduation.

    • Additional courses to be registered are subject to the final approval of your registration adviser. 

    • If you want to deviate fully from the curriculum (eg not take any major courses) or are decided upon shifting out, you are only allowed to do so under the Voluntary Shifting Out Status.

  10. Students who are in good standing and have decided to shift to another course outside EEEI should apply for the Voluntary Shifting Out status or apply directly to the department offering the course. More information on VSO can be found here.  Note that there is a University rule requiring students completion of at least thirty (30) units in the first program before they can apply for shifting in another program.

  11. Rules specific for graduating students (both undergraduate and graduate programs):

    • Students must file for candidacy for graduation during the semester they are expected to graduate, on or before the deadline set by the University as stated in the Academic Calendar. 

    • Residence requirements prior to graduation: No student shall be graduated from the University System unless the student has completed at least one year of residence work, which may, however, be extended for a longer period by the proper faculty. The student must have been in residence in the semester of graduation.

    • LOA is NOT counted towards residence requirements (see memo), except if it is due to enrollment as exchange student.

    • See University Requirements for Graduation and Rules for Graduation with Honors. Note that residence requirements immediately prior to graduation has been reduced to one semester, eg the student must have been in residence in the semester of graduation.

  12. The definition of senior standing for the three programs in the five-year curriculum are as follows:

    • For BS CoE and BS ECE: must have taken EEE 51, EEE 101, EEE 105, and EEE 107

    • For BS EE: must have taken EEE 103 and any 3 of the following: EEE 53, EEE 101, EEE 105, and EEE 107
