REPORT ON FIRST SEMESTER REGISTRATION AY 2012-2013I. CONTEXT
Last February, during the Student Faculty Dialogue, the Administration and thestudent representatives did not reach a resolution on whether the bidding systemwould be retained or not. The body decided that the LSG would conduct a survey todetermine the advantages and disadvantages of bidding from the perspective of thestudents and their preferences. The survey results, which were submitted to theAdministration, showed that the students still prefer the bidding system. Towards the end of the Second Semester of AY 2011-2012, the Administrationcommunicated its intent to abolish the bidding system. In April, during the LSGCentral Board courtesy call with the Dean, when the bidding system was brought up,the CB was told that the bidding system would be retained for the then incoming juniors and seniors and only the incoming freshmen and sophomores would beblocked. The Central Board then, during its Semester Planning, created proposals tobe submitted to the administration to improve certain aspects of the biddingprocedure.Before the proposals were presented, the Administration finally decided toabolish the bidding system and, instead, employ block enlistment for 1

yearand manual enlistment for the seniors. The LSG CB, then met with the CollegeSecretary to iron out the details of the new registration procedure, put in safeguardsand try to make the manual enlistment as efficient and less taxing on the seniors aspossible.However, despite all plans made to assure that registration would go assmoothly as possible, last minute changes and lack of experience in handling themanual enlistment, all contributed to a chaotic first day.After registration, the LSG CB constantly met with the Administration to ensurethat the manual system will no longer be employed and to find another system that isfair and efficient to which the Administration agreed.
 
II. SUMMARY OF COMMENTS FROM STUDENTS
 The first year registration was held up by Form 5a printing problemsencountered by new UP students. This led to the Registration Committee’s decision tonot strictly follow the numbering system. The Failure of the OCS to submit the Lawclass schedules to the CRS also contributed to the delay because the RegistrationCommittee had to enlist every student to each of their subjects. The registration of the sophomores and the juniors were not as eventful. TheRegistration Committee and the LSG batch representatives were able to enlist thestudents the previous day to their subjects which marginally reduced the registrationtime. The problems encountered were mainly with regard to those taking backsubjects. Those who did not undergo the appeals process were the ones who hadmost difficulty as their schedules had to be fixed on the registration day itself. Thestudents also prefer the previous system where everything was done in the first floorof the Library (including talking to the College Secretary and fixing schedules with theLSG) because it is more efficient because there is no need to transfer from one roomto another. The major problem encountered was during the registration of the seniors. Themanual enlistment system was very difficult to conduct as there are almost 200seniors and each person had to be manually enlisted to each subject, taking intoaccount their preferences and the fact that the number of units were limited to thatprescribed by the curriculum. OLA schedules also had to be taken into consideration.Seniors felt compelled to resort to camping out the day before theirregistration day by the first-come-first-served manual enlistment in order to ensure tosome extent that they would get their preferred electives. The overnight campoutwas a danger to the security of the students and the College because the studentsstayed in the parking lots around the Law complex. The problem with underloading and overloading in the seniors’ case stemsfrom the breakdown of the units per subject. Since there were implied combinationsof subjects due to the schedules, many people were forced overload or underload byone unit. The scheduling of the subjects was also a problem because the SLRschedules conflicted with some of the electives. Even if the SLR schedules were notreally followed during the semester, the CRS did not allow the students to enlist in theelectives and/or the SLR professor. The students suggested changing the SLRschedules to Saturday 6-8pm so as not to conflict with other subjects. The first day of registration (for seniors and freshmen) also took a very longtime due to the fact that there was only one assessor. It was inefficient and the OCSshould employ more people during registration. This can be done by hiring temporarystaff or assigning more staff to the OCS during registration.
