An applicant for admission to the law course is required to take the Law Entrance Examination (LEX). The LEX is administered by the Office of the Dean to all applicants in line with the need to maintain the quality of the students admitted into the College of Law. A minimal exam fee is collected upon every applicant and the tests are held from March until June for First Semester and from October until first week of November for Second Semester.
The applicant must submit the following:
- Official Transcript of Records (one (1) original or certified photocopy);
- Certificate of Good Moral Character (issued by the last school attended);
- NSO Birth Certificate;
- Certificate of Transfer Credentials (Honorable Dismissal) from the former school, and three (3) copies of 2X2 recent photo.
Admission of transfer students from other law schools shall be decided on a case to case basis by the Dean based on the applicant’s credentials and personal qualifications and subject to appropriate conditions.
The transfer student must submit the following:
- Certificate of Transfer of Credentials (Honorable Dismissal) from the former school;
- Certificate of Grades;
- Certificate of Good Moral Character;
- NSO Birth Certificate;
- Certificate of Eligibility for Admission into the Law Course (Form C-1), if the applicant has previously obtained such certification from his former school; and
- Three (3) copies 2X2 recent photo.
The College allows cross-enrolment to another school in recognition of the academic freedom of the students. In like manner, she entertains the cross-enrollment of students from other institutions.
Students are not allowed to cross-enroll to another school except in meritorious cases as determined by the Dean as follows:
- If the subjects are not offered in the College; and
- If the subjects are offered, but their schedule conflicts with the student’s other classes.
Admission to advance standing in any of the college will be granted to students who have completed in another school fifty percent or less, of the required units for graduation. (Special cases may be referred to the Dean or Head of the Department concerned and/or the Commission on Higher Education for approval).
Students who wish to take special courses under some professors in the university, after having offered evidence of their ability and academic preparation, must secure permission from the Dean of the College in which the students will register, and from the professor of the course for which they are registering.
Special students will not be given final examination in the course for which they have registered and upon registration, are required to sign a waiver to this effect. They will be subject to the same disciplinary and academic regulations as other students, and will pay the usual college registration fee in addition to the fee for each registered course and the incidental fees.
Subsequent compliance with entrance requirements, after the special course have been taken, will not validate the work done by the student while enrolled under the above conditions.
