Ugnayan at Patnubay: UP Diliman COVID-19 Student Handbook (pdf, website)
This handbook collates information on public health measures, applicable laws and guidelines, and support services and programs for students offered by the University. Believing in a holistic approach to health, as students are affected not only by COVID but also by general academic concerns and issues, the UPD Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs has assembled such information in two parts: guidelines for UP students on COVID response; and reintroduction of UPD services for academic support, financial support, mental health and wellbeing, and student discipline. This handbook includes a collection of memoranda pertaining to adjusted academic policies for the semester.
