As people, we’re all prone to changing our minds. Sometimes that change involves studying at the U.P. Diliman instead of at another campus.
If you’re itching to transfer, then you’re in for a meticulous application process. Read on.
Transferring from another UP campus to U.P. Diliman
Prepare the true copy of your grades and your transfer application and send them in to the Diliman campus. After you do that, wait a bit. Once they’ve been accepted, apply for your Official Transcript of Records, your Permit to Transfer and your Student Clearance from your U.P. branch of origin.
Send these in to Diliman and get your College Admission Slip. Turn the slip in to the Admissions and Registration Office, fill up a couple of copies of the student directory, and you’re done.
Transferring from another School to UP
Applicants from other schools need to do a tad more work. Prepare a True Copy of Grades or transcript signed by your school Registrar, U.P. form 3 or 3.1, two recent 2 x 2 photos and one hundred pesos.
After that, play the waiting game for about three weeks, and then inquire about the status of your application. If it’s been accepted, gird your loins, there’s more come.
Get a Transfer Credential or Honorable Dismissal from your original school and turn it in. Fill up two copies of the student directory, and then get an official request for your Transcript of Records and your University Admission Slip.
Next, go for a medical and physical examination from the University Health Service. Turn in the validated medical certificate and the Admission Slip to get your Form 5A. From thereon, it’s registration as usual.
Sound tedious? It can be. The rewards, though, will be well worth the time and effort invested.
