The University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman released Wednesday, February 15 the corrected academic calendar for the second semester and midyear term of academic year 2022-2023.
The new calendar was approved by the UP Diliman Executive Committee at its 321st and 330th meetings on March 14, 2022 and January 15, 2023, respectively, for submission to then UP President Danilo Concepcion. Concepcion approved the changes on February 8.
It applies to all units in the constituent university except the Master of Business Administration and Master of Science in Finance programs of the Virata School of Business, the Master of Management program of the UP Diliman Extension Programs in Pampanga and Olongapo, the Professional Masters in Tropical Marine Ecosystem Management of the College of Science, and the Archaeological Studies Program.
Classes for the second semester at UP Diliman began on February 13 and will end on June 15.
According to the corrected calendar, students have until next Monday, February 20 to file for change of matriculation (CoM) for the current semester. Other deadlines this semester include the filing of application for graduation on February 28, dropping subjects on May 17, and filing for leave of absence on May 31.
Graduating students this semester, on the other hand, must clear their deficiencies by June 24.
The University also set a Lenten break for students during the second semester from Holy Monday, April 3 to Easter Sunday, April 9.
Most changes in the corrected calendar can be found in the midyear term. Certain activities for the midyear were pushed to later dates, including the registration period (July 12-13), start of classes (July 17), deadline for CoM (July 21), deadline for filing of application for graduation (July 28), and deadline for dropping of subjects (August 10).
Some dates, however, were moved earlier such as the deadline of graduating students to clear their deficiencies (August 16), deadline for filing of LOA (August 17), and the end of classes (August 18).
Following a memorandum from UP Diliman Chancellor Fidel Nemenzo, the campus fully reopened on Monday.
“Guided by a shared responsibility to our community, everyone is advised to continue complying with health and safety protocols and adopt helpful practices such as getting vaccinated,” Nemenzo said in his memo.
“Faculty, students, and staff are urged to take an active part in the collective effort to prevent a surge in COVID-19 in the implementation of [face-to-face] class activities inside and outside the campus,” Nemenzo added.
