USC Website: Iskolinks, Student Helpdesk, USC Bulletin
This portion of the website will gather available scholarships for UP students. This will serve as a database for scholarships. The relevant links for scholarship applications will be found here as well. A basic student service section that aims to help students with their administrative needs and concerns such as enrollment, shifting, cross registration, dropping, and etc. will be produced as well. Lastly, announcements from the university administration, status updates & statistics on key issues, minutes on general assemblies, and financial reports of the USC will be made available here.
To ensure that students will be receiving information beyond the online spaces, text updates on deadlines, registration, and important dates in the university will be sent to students regularly.
Curriculum Checklist x UPslots x Course Reqs

Pass the Magna Carta, Break the Code
On multiple occasions amid this remote learning setup, the UP administration has outright denied the students’ calls for genuine academic ease in spite of overwhelming clamor from the student body. This exemplifies a key problem; we do not currently possess a codified list of students’ basic rights which we can hold the UP administration legally bound to uphold.
