Recognizing the extreme challenges of remote learning in the middle of a pandemic, made worse by the recent typhoons, UP has announced additional flexible academic measures for the remainder of the first semester of AY 2020-2021. This includes the extension of the deadline for the submission of grades and a policy of no failing grades to be given to students this semester.

After a succession of typhoons battered the country, the UP administration has declared the week of 16-21 November 2020 a period of recovery for the UP community to allow affected faculty, students and staff to get back on their feet and the rest of the UP community to continue with its disaster relief-related activities. Synchronous and asynchronous classes, as well as the submission of all course requirements, are suspended during this period.

Sa diwa ng pagmamalasakit at pagdadamayan, kagyat na naglunsad ng iba’t ibang relief operations ang komunidad ng UP para sa ating mga kababayang lubhang naapektuhan ng pananalasa ng mga nagdaang bagyo. Upang pag-ibayuhin ang pagtulong para sa pagbangon ng ating komunidad at mga kababayan, itinakda ng UP System Administration ang Nobyembre 16-21, 2020 bilang “RECOVERY PERIOD”, panahon upang maipagpatuloy ang mga sinimulang donation drives, paghahanda ng mga relief goods at pagdadala ng mga ito sa mga evacuation centers, gayundin ang pagtulong para sa rehabilitasyon ng mga apektadong komunidad.
