The dates of orientation and registration will be notified to him or her and published in the academic calendar and information boards of the institution. There will be a school counselor available to prospective students, both before and during the registration period, to guide them in the selection of the program courses, class schedules, requirements and prerequisites, as well as the policy for satisfactory academic progress.
