UP academic calendar shift

The Philippine Collegian, the official student publication of UP-Diliman, posted Thursday the announcement in its official Facebook page:

NEWSFLASH: From Student Regent Krista Melgarejo: The UP Board of Regents has approved the shift of the academic calendar in UP from June to August. In the meantime, UP Diliman will keep the same calendar, due to opposition registered by sectors.

UP’s announcement followed Ateneo’s.

Earlier, the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) posted that its Board of Trustees approved its academic calendar shift. The only difference is the effectivity of implementation.
