UP Oblation

The decision came after majority of the University Council members voted in favor of the change. 284 voted for the new academic calendar, 164 did not favor, while two preferred to abstain.

UP Diliman is the last school of the UP System to approve the said Academic Calendar System. It was proposed in order to align UP's calendar to other universities in the world, in view of the integration of  ASEAN economies under Asean 2015.

Sometime in February this year, the UP Board of Regents (BoR) approved the new calendar for UP Los Banos, Baguio, Visayas, Cebu, Mindanao and its Open University. (Source)
