UP Diliman COVID-19 Student Handbook

A year after the first cases in the Philippines and the first declaration of community quarantine, the recent resurgence of COVID-19 cases as well as emergence of new variants of the virus has caused fear and panic across the nation.

Key to our collective coping during this time is access to correct information.

To provide this for UP Diliman students, the UP Diliman OVCSA collated information on public health measures, applicable laws and guidelines, and support services and programs for students offered by the University.

You may access the digital version of the handbook at or download it at

We hope that these will help to reassure and guide students in making informed decisions and getting the help and support that they need, wherever they are and whatever their circumstances.

As a University, we are continuously evaluating our guidelines and protocols to ensure that compassionate policies are being implemented, and that honor comes first before excellence.

Through this pandemic, UP will stand together, and UP will fight.

Memorandum No JTB 2021-005: UPCEd Academic Ease

I am appealing to the faculty to allow flexibility in light of the increasing COVID-19 cases in the University. The CESC has received various reports regarding students and family members being affected by this Pandemic. Thus, I am endorsing the Student Council’s appeal to the College of Education faculty to:

1) provide access to all class materials for all students;
2) make attendance in synchronous sessions optional, instead of required;
3) move all deadlines at the end of the semester; and
4) explore other ways of engaging with students instead of relying on synchronous lectures.
I would like also to reiterate the email of VC Payongayong dated April 4, 2021 to “continue to practice compassion, respect and mutual care such that students and faculty with special needs in this time of pandemic will be afforded consideration”.

Thank you and keep safe.
