The Alumni Relations Office (ARO) has announced last 21st of September, 2016 that the refund for the payments made by  2008 to 2011 graduates for their memorabilia is now ready for processing.

Prof. Bernadette Canlas, head of the said office, explains that for the refund to be successful, alumni must be able to follow rules promulgated by the PUP Main. “…after [silang] magproduce ng copy ng mga sinend ko (pertaining to three documents the association has received),i-fill up nila ung mga necessary data then punta sila sa school, dalhin sa accounting office, then punta sa akin kasi pipirma ako dun“, she said in an email.

TRANSLATION:(“After [they] produced copies of what I have sent, [they have to] fill up all necessary data then proceed to the school; bring it to accounting office, then to me because I have to sign it.”)

The rules, based on Prof. Canlas statements, can be simplified in six simple instructions: (1) Download the forms which can be downloaded HERE; (2) Print the files; (3) Fill up; (4) Pay PhP 50 for a duplicate copy of your original receipt of your yearbook payment but if you can retrieve your original receipt, you may not do this step; (5) Submit everything to ARO; and (6) Wait for further instruction as to what date will you be scheduled to get your claim. These instructions are for graduates of Taguig Branch only. For PUP Main, click THIS. For other branches and campuses, please ask your respective ARO.

To process a request for refund via a proxy. the representative shall do the same steps as indicated, provided he shall have an authorization letter issued by the person he represent, attached therewith the copy of the representative’s and the alumnus’ valid IDs.

Yearbooks of earlier years are still available for pick up at the Library which can be addressed to PUP Taguig Alumni Association, Inc. (PUPTAAI) Vice President Internal Charolyn De Luna. Meanwhile, memorabilia of classes 2012 to 2013 are now in the printing process. As for class of 2014 to 2016, the university has not issued any statement yet at the time of this posting.

The yearbook refund has been decided upon by the University Board of Regents and was published last July the first, 2016 by its secretary.
