Rules and Procedures
Academic scholars are selected every semester. Students who are enrolled in degree courses are eligible to qualify.

After careful evaluation of the records of all students who qualify, the Registrar will post the list on the bulletin boards around the campus.

Students who top the list will enjoy the benefits of free matriculation and miscellaneous fees for the semester.

The 2nd and 3rd students in the list will be entitled to a discount amounting to half the matriculation fee.

To qualify as an Academic Scholar, a student should have a minimum load of eighteen (18) units for the semester.

Also, the student should maintain a minimum grade of 88% for all academic subjects and a minimum of 85% for non-academic subjects (P.E. and ROTC). Moreover, a student should not have any dropped subjects.
