Interviews 

The purpose of interviews is to guide students in making decisions and in planning for the future. These interviews are given to new students, for those intending to drop their subjects, shift to other courses, transfer to other colleges, and for readmission of returning students. This service is in coordination with the Registrar’s Office and students are being interviewed via MS Teams. 

  

Testing 

As decided by the Council of Deans, Directors and Heads (CODDH), the Entrance Exam is waived due to the health and safety risk of infectious disease in the conduct of testing until further notice.  

In lieu of the Entrance Test, the GTC in collaboration with Center for eLearning (CEL) and Registrar’s Office (REG) implemented the Scoring and Interpretation of Online Survey on Student Readiness. The purpose is to assess readiness of students in online learning and to schedule them for initial or routine interview. 

The online survey on student readiness has six (6) components namely self-directedness, learning preference or styles, study habits, communication and support, technology skills and computer equipment capabilities. The scoring and interpretation is being emailed to student’s LPU MS Office account. For inquiries, email us at lpugtc@lpu.edu.ph
