Specific Guidelines on Student's Identification Card

The ID of a student is issued by the Registrar.

The duly authorized staff of the student’s college library countersigns his ID upon presentation of his Form 5 provided he has no outstanding account with the U.P. Library.

The ID of a cross-registrant from within or outside the University and that of a special student and/or non-degree student is countersigned by the duly authorized staff of his college library (e.g. he was advised in that college or his Form 5 is signed by the secretary of his college). If however, he was advised by the Registrar his ID is countersigned by the Main Library of the Constituent University where he is enrolled provided he has paid his library fee and has no outstanding account with the U.P. Library.

The ID of a student on residence will only be countersigned upon payment of his library fee as manifested in his Form 5. Otherwise, he is treated as an alumnus or former student.

A student who has no ID (e.g. new student or one who has lost his ID) may be issued a temporary ID (Green) by his college library or, in the case of a cross-registrant, a special student, or a non-degree student, by his college library upon presentation of his Form 5 and receipt from the Registrar that he has paid for his ID and which should include a “1x1” ID size picture, provided that he has paid his library fee and has no outstanding account with the UP library. If however, he was advised by the Registrar, his temporary ID card is issued by the Main Library.
