    • Hi, Shy!

      Try to send an e-mail at the Registrar’s Office. We believe they’re the ones who handle the class schedules, and they usually have a copy of the different course curricula as well. If you send a formal request, they might send you a copy. You can find their e-mail address on the post above.


  16. goodmorning po Sir/Madam:

    • Hi, Maricon!

      You can find the admission requirements for transferees on PUP’s website. As for the tuition fee, last time we checked, it was still at PHP 12.00 per unit. We’re not sure if there has been any increase since then, though. πŸ™‚

  17. Kapag kumuha po ako ng form saan po ako pupunta atsaka ano po kailangan dalhin please reply ASAP

    • Kuha po sna ako form para po sa high school

    • Hi, Kelvin!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      As much as we’d like to help you with your concern, we’re not affiliated with PUP so we’re not in the position to answer that question for you. It’s best if you’ll contact them directly using the contact information above so they can give you a more accurate and detailed response.


  18. meron po bang course sa pup na bachelor of science in geography??thanks po..

  19. umm..kaylan po yung pasahan ng requirements sa PUP Sta.mesa?? At saka po saan makakakuha ng application form?

    • HI, Yvette!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      Admission for SY 2013-2014 has not yet been announced. We believe all PUP applications are now processed online. Prospective students can apply through this page:

      There’s supposed to be an “Apply Now” button at the bottom of that page, but it seems to be currently missing; we’re guessing probably because the application process has long been over. We’re not so sure about that, though, so it’s best if you’ll contact PUP directly so they can give you a more accurate response.

    • Hi, Milan!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      As far as we know, that depends on how many units will be credited from your previous course. Usually, the more units get credited, the faster you can graduate. Tuition fee is PHP12.00 per unit, but we’re not sure if that also applies to international students. We’re not connected with PUP, so It’s best if you’ll contact them directly using the contact information above so they can give you a more accurate and more detailed response regarding your inquiries .

      Good luck! πŸ™‚
