Academic Policies

A student is expected to register during the dates set for this purpose. A late registrant (one who fails to submit his duly-accomplished registration form to the registrar’s office at a specified date) will be required to pay a special fee of P75.00 for the first day and P25.00 per day thereafter. The registration is complete when the Certificate of Registration (COR) is signed by the chairperson or the authorized encoder and by the student.

1.      Register in your department station, not in any other station.

2.      The Form E6 should be signed by the chairperson as proof that academic advising has been done.

A subject may be dropped or added only by filling out the Request for Class Change Form which can be secured from the registrar’s office or department chairperson office. This form, properly completed, must be submitted to the department chairperson for approval and encoding.

90% refund on the first week

80% refund on the second week

MVC’s grading system includes: A – Excellent; B – Good; C – Average; D – Poor; F – Failed;; WP (Withdrew Passing) and WF (Withdrew Failure) for subjects dropped after the designated dropping dates.

The Grade Point Average (GPA) is computed by the registrar’s office for each student. The following grade point values are assigned letter grades:

Number Letter Grade Honor Points
98-100 A 4.00
95-97 A- 3.67
92-94 B+ 3.33
89-91 B 3.00
86-88 B- 2.67
83-85 C+ 2.33
80-82 C 2.00
77-79 C- 1.67
74-76 D 1.33
73-below F 0

A student is officially enrolled in a class if his/her name is in the final class roster and the subject is printed in his/her Certificate of Registration.

No student should be admitted to class if he/she is not officially enrolled.

A student receiving an unsatisfactory grade in a major subject shall be allowed to repeat it once only. In such a case, the record of the first attempt is not erased, but in computing the GPA the credits and honor points earned on the better effort are used.

In a sequence-type course, a student who earns an F for one semester must automatically repeat that course before being permitted to enroll or remain enrolled in subsequent courses in that sequence.

  • English Plus, English 1, English 2;  English 3, Lit. 1, Lit. 2 can be taken after the first three English subjects in any order.
  • PE 1, PE 2;  PE 3 and PE 4 can be taken in any order.
  • Filipino 1, Filipino 2
  • Math Plus, Math 1
  • For the major subjects, refer to your chairperson.
  • Always get academic advice from your chairperson especially during enrollment.

 If a student has taken any of the specified subjects in the wrong order, he/she must reenroll it. He/She is not charged tuition fee or any amount for reenrollment of a subject for sequencing purposes except in the case of transferees when the error was done by the previous school or if his/her subject or grade cannot be credited, he/she must retake the subject and pay the full tuition fee.

A student may be allowed by the teacher, for a valid reason, to complete his/her incomplete grade within six weeks after the last day of the final exam. Valid reasons refer to illnesses supported by a medical certificate, emergencies in the family like death, grave illness of any of the immediate family members, and other cases which will be evaluated by the Academic Affairs Committee.

The course load is expressed in semestral credits. A semester credit represents a one-hour class per week for one semester, presupposing approximately two hours of preparation per hour in class. Thus, a class with a three-unit credit meets three times a week. A one-unit laboratory meets for three hours.

A load of 21-24 units is considered an average semestral course load. A maximum credit of nine units is allowed during the summer term.

A student with a minimum load of 18 units who receives grades not lower than B- in all subjects including work education is eligible to be on the Dean’s List.

A student is expected to attend his/her classes promptly and regularly. A student who incurs absences, whether excused or unexcused, that exceed 20% of the number of hours required for the course will be given a mark of FA (Failure in Attendance). Three late attendances will be counted as one absence. Leave of absence on the campus does not excuse a student from classes or relieve him of the required class work.

Twenty per cent of classes meeting three times a week at one hour per meeting is 11 absences per semester; classes meeting two times a week at one hour and a half per meeting is seven absences per semester.

All students are required to wear the prescribed college uniform when they are on campus during regular days, except on Wednesday.  All students who come to the campus and attend classes should be properly groomed and neatly dressed.  P.E. uniform ( T-shirt, jogging pants,  and rubber shoes)  may be worn inside the classroom, and or around the campus during  P.E. day/time only.  Whether in uniform or civilian clothes, all students are expected to govern themselves in a manner which encourages respect.  Students are not allowed to attend classes in sleeveless or under-shirts, in short pants or “porontong.”  Skirts or dresses of ladies should be below-the-knee level.  Appropriate footwear should be worn.  Wearing of slippers or wooden shoes (bakya), is not allowed.   Students who are pregnant and /or differently able are exempted from wearing of school uniform, but are required to secure an exemption note from the office of the VP for Student Affairs.

Wearing of PE Uniform is allowed during week days except Wednesday, provided that the students can present their Certificate of Registration (COR) to their teachers to prove that they have PE classes either before or after.  When it is not possible for them to wear their uniform:

He/she should write a letter in a one-whole sheet of bond paper stating his/her reason.  Address this letter to the VPAA.  He/she should get the signature of his/her guardian/home dean attesting to the truth of his/her reason.  He/she submits the duly signed letter to the VPAA secretary.  Get from the VPAA secretary a Note of Acceptance.

Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to: falsification of official documents; plagiarism; presenting assignments or reports (laboratory, reading reports, etc.) that are not based on the student’s own work; using materials during a quiz or examination other than those specifically allowed by the instructor; stealing, accepting, or studying from the paper of another during a formal or take-home examination or quiz. Collaborating in dishonest acts is also punishable.

Academic dishonesty is an offense, punishable by warning, receipt of a lower or failing score, dismissal from a class, suspension, expulsion, degree annulment or in the case of falsification of official documents, non-admission, annulment or loss of total credits earned. This is without prejudice to the provisions of the Student Behavior Code.

When for any reason a student’s cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below 2.0, he/she will be considered an academic delinquent and placed on academic probation. He will be allowed to take 19 units if he/she has one F, and 16 units if he/she has two F’s, and three or more D’S of the previous semester.  He/She is not allowed to participate in co-curricular activities involving many hours of preparation and/or causing class absences. He/she is removed from probation after earning at Mountain View College or any school a minimum of 12 credits with a GPA of at least 2.00.

A student who is an academic delinquent for two successive semesters may still be readmitted but is allowed to take a maximum load of 10 to 12 units only. If he\she remains on academic probation for three successive semesters, he/she shall be denied admission on the following semester.

Other marks that will make a student an academic delinquent are: one or more F’s or FA’s and two or more D’s, an F in NSTP and work education.

Academically suspended individuals shall not be readmitted for at least one semester.

A regular academic semester, which is equivalent to five months, is at least 18 weeks or 100 recitation days including the examination days. The summer term is six weeks or one-and a-half months.

The vice president for academic affairs, in consultation with the respective department chairperson and dean, reserves the right to cancel any scheduled class if enrollment is below 25 for a minor subject and 10 for a major subject or if an instructor is not available due to emergency changes in personnel. A non-regular class offering with students less than the required number may be offered upon request provided the students pay the total tuition fees of 25 students for a minor subject and 10 students for a major subject.

When a class is dissolved, the student is automatically dropped by the registration software. He/She will not be charged of tuition fee.

A change in class time can only be approved by the VPAA if all enrolled students affix their signatures as proof that nobody has a conflict with the new schedule. Unless this requirement is met, the change in class time cannot be effected.

Four major examinations are given during the semester. Teachers require an examination pass from a student before he/she is allowed to take any of the exams. No advance examination is given to any student except on cases of illness of the student or death or serious illness of any of the immediate members of the family.

No Student Group Activities Before Major Exams

No student group activity, on and off the campus, is allowed seven days before the prelim and semifinal examinations and 14 days before the midterm and final examinations.

Special Examination

Special examination is given to a student who has missed a scheduled examination for valid reasons such as: death or serious illness of the immediate members of the family, financial reasons as certified by the DSF, or illness of the student. Being not prepared cannot be accepted as valid reason. A special examination fee of P30.00 per unit will be charged. The student pays at the cashier and presents the receipt to the teacher.  Furthermore, special examinations be given within two weeks after the scheduled exams.  Students requesting special exams should write a letter of explanation to the teacher duly noted by their chairpersons, deans and the VPAA.  The parents should be furnished with copies.  Dormitory students who are sick (such as those suffering from headaches, stomachaches, fever, etc.) but have no chance to see the doctor, can get certifications from the home deans.  These should be noted by their chairpersons, deans and the VPAA before they are given to their teachers.

1.      A removal examination may be given to students who failed the subject.

2.      A removal examination must be taken within the two weeks after the final exams.

3.      A removal examination, if granted by the teacher, will be administered only once.

4.      A student who takes a removal examination shall pay P30.00 per unit to the cashier. He/She presents the receipt to the teacher before taking the removal examination.

5.      The grade earned from the removal examination is credited to any of the four major exams which the student got the lowest. A recomputation of the final grade will then be done.

When a student wishes to have the unit/units credited for a subject taken from another school, he/she is required to enroll and pay for the tuition fee of the subject and takes the validating examination.  He/she will not be required to attend in the class. The result of the examination will be reflected in his/her records as the final grade. However, the validating examination is given to a student on a case-to-case basis.

Religion Requirements

A student enrolled in a degree program is required to enroll 18 units of religion subjects. These will be taken at the rate of one religion course per semester until the requirement is satisfied. The following religion subjects are required: Christian Beliefs and Contextualized Witnessing, Life and Teachings of Jesus, Daniel and Revelation, Spirit of Prophecy and SDA Church History, Philosophy of Adventist Education and Integration of Faith and Learning, and Health Principles and Christian Home. A student who has about half of his course work taken in a non-Adventist educational institution is required, for each semester enrolled in MVC, to take three units of religion until the 18 units have been earned.

NSTP and Physical Education (P. E.)

Male and female Filipino citizens are required two semesters of NSTP. Four semesters of P.E. are required of all male and female students. These courses should be taken during the first two years. No student is allowed to enroll in the fourth curriculum year without having completed the NSTP and P.E. requirements.

A student who wishes to transfer credits from another institution to MVC must present those credits for evaluation to the department concerned. A validating examination approved by the Academic Affairs Committee may be required.

Admission to one of the schools does not guarantee admission to a specific department or program within a given school. Once admitted, a student wishing to transfer from one department or program to another may do so only upon the consent of the deans/chairpersons involved. The student must meet the admission requirements of the admitting department.

The deans/chairpersons of the various schools/departments reserve the right to review at intervals the student’s work and progress and, in consultation with the faculty, may recommend the student who cannot comply with or meet the minimum requirements set by the department to discontinue taking courses leading to a degree.

Until a student has completed approximately one half of his/her curriculum requirements, he/she is classified as being in the lower division and should take lower division courses with numbers less than 300. When a student has completed his/her second curriculum year, he/she becomes eligible for the upper division status.

Upon formal application to the department chairperson, a student’s academic record is evaluated and the result is endorsed to the registrar for final checking. A student is classified as a junior upon meeting the GPA requirement and outlining a program that can be completed in four semesters and two summers.

The senior class membership is similarly attained through the recommendation of the Department Chairperson and School Dean and by achieving the required GPA (2.50) for the major and 2.00 for the overall, accompanied by a program that can be reasonably accomplished in two semesters.

The responsibility for meeting the requirements for graduation rests primarily on the student. He/She should be acquainted with and fulfill all specified requirements to complete the degree.


1.      Form 137-A/Transcript of records

2.      Satisfactory completion of the courses specified in the curriculum leading to the degree.

3.      Attainment of an overall GPA of 2.0 for all class work and 2.5 in the major field

Graduation with Academic Honors

A student who completes a baccalaureate degree with a GPA of 3.25 and above will be awarded the following:

  • Summa Cum Laude, GPA of 3.75 – 4.0 (75% of the subjects earned in MVC and 25% from any school)

GPA computations for academic honors will include credit earned from sister denominational institutions.

The original records must never leave the registrar’s office.  Before they are filed, records from other schools sent by mail are inspected if they are properly authenticated and signed by the proper school authorities.  Hand-carried records found to be fraudulent undergo investigation. A corresponding disciplinary measure is given to a student committing the act of fraud.

At the request of the student, the registrar’s office will release a Transcript of Records (TOR) at P75.00 per page for an original copy and P40.00 per page for an authenticated photocopy. A TOR will be issued only to the student who has settled all financial obligations to the College.  A request for the TOR should reach the registrar’s office at least ten working days before it is needed.
