On May 30, USJ-R officially announced its schedule and procedure for the enrollment for the online summer class this year.
We heard your concerns and collectively came up with answers for the frequently asked concerns.
ONLINE CLASS SETUP
What to expect from USJ-R online summer classes?
Video conferencing with teachers is expected to take place during the class hours stated on your study load. Students and teachers will not necessarily virtually meet every day. In consideration to the students’ capacity to go online, the teachers can set a customized and flexible arrangement as not to compromise the desired learning competencies.
There will be a midterm and a final exam.
The University will implement the same grading system.
Teachers will be utilizing e-learning management systems to keep track of students progress in completing the desired learning outcomes.
Having a smartphone and access to the internet is the minimum requirement in order to participate in an online class. You can download supplemental mobile apps so you can comply with the course requirements.
Apps and websites
Students are advised to download the following learning management system apps: Moodle (for college) and Quipper (for senior high). For video conferencing, the University recommends Google Meet because it consumes lesser data. The students may also install Google Docs or other similar apps to help accomplish tasks. These apps can be downloaded for free.
Signal Strength Problems
Teachers are advised to be considerate with this matter. Students may voice out their concerns regarding to this so an arrangement can be done.
Subjects involving practicum and laboratory which cannot be implemented online will be moved in the next semesters. The respective departments will take care of this matter. Reach out to your respective colleges for more details through their official Facebook pages. (List of official pages here)

How much is the payment for the online classes this summer?
The total amount varies depending on the number of units you want to take. Since the classes are online, the total school fee is lesser than the regular face-to-face summer class.
How much will we pay for miscellaneous fee?
Deductions have been made to the miscellaneous fee. It is lower since students cannot use classroom-based facilities. However, some student services can still be offered online so a minimal miscellaneous fee exists.
Can I ask how much will I pay before enrolling to the online summer class?
For a customized computation, please contact the Accounting Office. (Click here to contact them)
I am a scholar and I still have an outstanding balance from the previous semester. Can I enroll?
By default, one cannot enroll if one has an outstanding balance of more than 10%. If you are a scholar and your tuition is not yet paid by the government or your company sponsor, reach out to the Scholarship Center so you can enroll this summer.
When will the online summer class end?
The Registrar has set it to end on July 24, 2020.
What will happen to students who cannot enroll in the summer class when the prospectus states they have to take subjects this summer?
Do not worry. The Department will plot the subjects so those who were not able to take it this summer can take it in the succeeding semesters. Overload for the next semester is also an option.
What if I want to shift to a different degree program this summer?
The system is not yet ready to entertain program shifting. If you have plans to shift, reach out to your current department chair so you will be given subjects which can be credited to the new degree program you want to take.
When will be the enrollment for new students?
We are still preparing the schedule and list of requirements. We will post an update about this soon.
Do you offer scholarships?
