IFSU brings admission, enrolment closer to students amid COVID-19 pandemic

With the regulated movement of people and limited public transportation due to COVID-19 pandemic, Ifugao State University (IFSU), in particular, Lamut and Lagawe campuses, launched its mobile enrolment dubbed, ‘IFSU mobile admission and enrolment campaign,' to cater to students who are unable to travel to the University for admission and enrolment purposes for the 1st Semester of the Academic Year 2020-2021.

“Our current situation should not in any way disrupt our students’ education. ’IFSU mobile admission and enrolment campaign’ project is a pragmatic way of bringing our admission and enrolment services closer to and help ease the process for our major stakeholders, our students. We deem this as an effective approach to reach out to our students, especially those located in remote areas,” remarked Dr. Eva Marie Codamon-Dugyon, University President.

The Department of Registrar and Admission Services (DRAS), Department of Student Services and Development (DSSD), and representatives from each college make up the team that facilitates these activities with the close supervision of the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA).

According to the DRAS, said off-site (off-campus) enrolment is scheduled on separate dates per municipality. As of press time, the team is at Lagawe Plaza, Lagawe, Ifugao.

The team already served students from Banaue, Hungduan and Hingyon during the previous days. ‘Enrolment on Wheels’ will be at Kiangan Municipal Gym, Kiangan on July 3 (Friday), Asipulo on July 7, Cordon (AM) / Diadi (PM) on July 10, Mayoyao on July 14, Lamut (cluster1) on July 16 and Lamut (cluster 2) on July 17.

Meanwhile, the College of Health Sciences (CHS) - Lamut Campus earlier initiated an off-campus enrollment for the 3rd Term/Summer Class for S.Y. 2019-2020. At least 171 of Bachelor of Science in Nursing students from the different municipalities of Ifugao and outside the province were enrolled.

Said ‘IFSU mobile admission and enrolment campaign' is being conducted in coordination with Municipal and Barangay Local Government Units. The University strictly adheres to standard prevention measures against COVID-19 such as wearing of facemasks and observing physical distancing during the mobile admission and enrolment.
