The University of the Philippines Office of Admissions (UP OAdms) has extended the deadline for the online submission of Form 2 by high schools with students applying to UP from March 31 to April 15, 2021.

In a statement issued on March 29, Monday, the UP OAdms said this will be the final deadline in order for the University to proceed with the processing of applications in time for the opening of academic year 2021-2022.

The extension of the deadline for the online submission of Form 2 was made in response to notices and requests from many high schools to further extend the period for the submission of the grades of their students applying to UP.

UP noted that there has been a slower rate of submissions due to modified work arrangements brought about by the coronavirus disease pandemic.

The declaration of enhanced community quarantine in the National Capital Region, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal, and lockdowns in other parts of the country, will likely further contribute to the delays in data integration and quality check.

UP said that among the 108,350 who applied for first-year admission to the university for the academic year 2021-2022, an estimated 32,200 Form 2 submissions are yet to be received.

The UP OAdms has scheduled the final deadline for submission of application requirements, both Form 1 and Form 2, on April 15, 2021 in order to release the list of qualified UP applicants on or before July 15, 2021.

High schools that have not received any notification, have changed their registered email address, or are having difficulty with online submission are advised to contact [email protected].

Inquiries, concerns and requests for assistance may also be coursed through the Online Helpdesk found in the UP Office of Admissions Facebook page.

The Helpdesk is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
