Maybe I can get some ideas, or answers. My daughter is an incoming 3rd year AB Journ but she wanted to shift to Lit. Her GPA is 2.5 and she was initially told by the the counsellor that she'll be accepted, but was denied by the Dean. What would be the reason for denying my kid who really want to shift since she realized this is what she wants. Also, when she was told by someone at the AB office she was not given the reason for her non-acceptance to Literature. Isn't that our basic right to know? If someone punches me outside there's a preety darn good reason for it and the guy would certainly tell me what. But UST? Is this a normal thing for a Catholic University to simply tell a student that he/she didn't make it? By the way, me and my wife are prducts of UST hence our daughter is enrolled here too. Thinking of all the good values that we got in school. Now, what gives?

This is not the best place to look for answers. Don't take it personally because your daughter could've been denied permission to transfer for a multitude of reasons. If I were you, I'd go directly to the Dean's office.
I'll leave you with an announcement from Faculty Secretary, sir Doma:
Tomorrow, April 11, 2012 is your clearance day. Please be informed that you are required to be in complete AB uniform to be allowed to get your clearance. Make sure you also have your ID to be entertained by the Clearance Staff. JUST BE READY and DON'T BE SURPRISED ANYMORE: Those who still have outstanding balance (unpaid Tuition Fee) and overdue or lost book from the Benavidez Library, should get the official notice from the Clearance Staff tomorrow and address those concerns ASAP. Those who failed to do the Student Satisfaction Survey should check instructions at the Clearance Rooms on what you should do to avoid being blocked from enrollment. An estimated 800 students failed to accomplish the survey despite the extension given to you last March.
SO YOU HAVE ACADEMIC PROBLEMS? YOU FAILED 9 or more SUBJECTS? We have requested your Section Coordinators to be present tomorrow so they can provide you with academic assistance/advising. Those who exceeded the allowable number of failures DEFINITELY HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE TO AB. All that AB can do for you is to allow you to enroll this summer of 2012 just to clear your deficiencies (if you want to do it in UST) but you will be required to sign a waiver indicating that you will have to find a NEW HOME in June.
DID YOU APPLY FOR SHIFTING TO ANOTHER MAJOR within AB? Oh, so sorry to inform you that a good number according to Dean VASCO (Faculty Council Meeting, April 10, 2012) were NOT APPROVED or NOT ALLOWED for various reasons. If you really need to pursue another degree; not the one where you were enrolled for the past 2 years in AB, feel free to seek help from the Dean's Office on how you can apply for your transfer of credentials to the new school where you may enroll this summer or in June to pursue that degree. Those who qualified for shifting should also see the Coordinator of your new discipline/major so you can be properly advised on the next thing to do (subjects to enroll this summer if allowed, or in June)
ENROLLING THIS SUMMER? Those who have failed one or more subjects during the past semesters are STRONGLY ADVISED to enroll those subjects if offered this summer than to be SORRY LATER. "Huwag mong paramihin ang bugok na itlog sa pugad kung ayaw mong malason ang iba pang sisiw." Do something about it now! Summer schedule of fees have yet to be released by the Main Building. Huwag sisihin ang AB Office neither the ABSC, esp. Inna.
ON-THE-JOB TRAINING (OJT)/PRACTICUM: Make sure you have all the necessary papers before you start with your practicum or OJT in any accredited institution by your respective Sections. The MOA should be accomplished in 3 copies but should be filled out and signed by concerned representatives individually. NO PHOTO COPYING of just one copy to make 3 sets. It should bear ORIGINAL SIGNATURES.
So just like that: various reasons. I'm supposed to simply swallow this lame excuse. Well, thank you for trying to give an explanation. I'm currently out of the country, how I wish I could write to someone from AB admin. Tried this before with a simple query but nobody replied. Disappointing to say the least.
