Training Day Announcements

UP ROTC still accepting students

Quoted from UP Diliman CRS:

“The NSTP Common Module will end on 27 October 2014 (Monday). Academic units must redistribute students from their NSTP common module and generic pairs to their corresponding program components using the Class Redistribution module.

The NSTP Change of Matriculation period for the First Semester AY 2014-2015 is scheduled on 27 October 2014 (Monday) to 31 October 2014 (Friday). Students may opt to change their NSTP program components during this period.

Redistribution process is same as the ChangeMat process. It’s not too late to take the challenge and be a better person than you are today. Enlist UP ROTC. For inquiries you may visit Vanguard Bldg Room 105 or contact CMaj Joy Avelino at (0905) 434-1840
