No student shall be recommended for graduation unless he has satisfied all academic and other requirements prescribed thereto.
Candidates for graduation who began their studies under a curriculum which is more than 10 years old shall be governed by the following rules:
1. Those who had completed all the requirements of the curriculum but did not apply for, nor were granted the corresponding degree or title shall have their graduation approved as of the date they should have originally graduated.
2. Those who had completed all but two or three subjects required by a curriculum shall be made to follow any of the curricula enforced from the time they first attended the University to the present.
During the first three weeks after the opening of classes in each semester, each Dean or his duly authorized representative shall certify to the University Registrar a list of candidates for graduation at the next commencement. The University Registrar, in consultation with the chairmen of divisions or departments concerned, in the case of students majoring in their respective departments or divisions, shall then inquire into the academic record of each candidate with a view to ascertaining whether any candidate in such a list has any deficiency to make up and whether he/she has fulfilled all other requirements which qualify him to be a candidate for graduation. If there should be any question regarding a candidate, his name should not be deleted from the list of candidates for graduation, but footnotes to that effect should be given. Ten weeks before the end of a semester the University Registrar shall publish a complete list of duly qualified candidates for graduation for that semester.
All candidates for graduation must have their deficiencies made up and their records cleared not later than five weeks before the end of their last semester, with the exception of those in academic subjects and work in Physical Education and Military Science, in which the student is currently enrolled during that semester,
No student shall be graduated from the University unless he/she has completed at least one year of residence work which may, however, be extended to a longer period by the proper faculty. The residence work referred to must be done immediately prior to graduation.
1. A student transferee from schools other than the University of the Philippines. This residence requirement is in addition to completion of at least 50% of the required units for the course; and
2. A student who has been readmitted after being absent without official leave (AWOL).
