PLM is composed of several autonomous colleges and schools in Intramuros, other parts of Manila and in its partners institutions in the Philippines and abroad, each conferring undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. The administration is in the process of building a university system embracing all the districts in the capital city as well as to include a science and technology institute and a polytechnic school on extension campuses.cite web

Education

The PLM education utilizes a semester-based modular system for conducting courses, adopts features of the American system (credits), and offers 53 single-degree undergraduate and 49 masters, doctoral and graduate diploma programs conducted by its 25 degree-granting colleges and graduate schools in its three academic divisions.Barrios, Dr. Romeo M. and Nunez, Dr. Domingo B. "Improving College Teaching via Modules". "Pamantasan StarPost, Vol. III, No. 2". September 2002.]

The academic year of PLM is divided into two semesters, each composed of four and a half months of instruction. The university requires a minimum of twelve units to be considered a full-time student, with the maximum being twenty units. The average PLM undergraduate takes four four courses, or sixteen units. Summer courses are offered in selected courses only.

PLM employs the General Weighted Average (GWA) system and a 1.00 to 5.00 grading scale, with 1.00 being the highest possible grade for a particular undergraduate course. For the graduate level, the Pass/Fail system generally apply.

Curricula

The PLM curricula, from the licensure programs to minimum course requirements, are based from the prescribed curriculum of the Commission on Higher Education, but the PLM education system exercises full autonomy to alter its own curricula.Boniquit, Celeste J. and Macapagal, Ryan T. "PLM Autonomy in Question Over Transparency." "Ang Pamantasan, Vol. XXIV, No. 3". August 2003.]

The different academic divisions offer degree programs based on the curricula proposed by the PLM faculty. Consultations with the business or industry engaged in the particular field or study are also sought. The participative involvement of practitioners in the formation of the courses of study is reflected in skills-oriented, community-directed and value-driven curricular programs of PLM. In 2004, the University's "Medium-Term Development Plan" mainstreamed into the PLM education system some innovative programs and best practices as articulated in the academic programs that are market-based and responsive to the industry needs.

During the first year of college work, students at the Undergraduate schools receive a general education program from the College of Liberal Arts. On April 15, 2005, the 68-unit PLM General Education Program (GEP) was revised. Now, it consists of English, Filipino, Social Sciences and Humanities, Philosophy and Ethics, Sciences, Mathematics, and Personal Financial Management.cite web

Management courses have also been integrated with emphasis on ethics to ensure that PLM graduates are steep with sound values and adhere to the highest ethical standards necessary in their chosen careers.

The students are also required to attend four Physical Education classes, and a choice from among Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) or Civil Welfare Training Service (CWTS) in the Department of Military Science & Tactics and the National Service Training Corps. The PLM ROTC Unit has been consistently hailed by National Capital Region-Regional Community Defense Group as one of the most outstanding ROTC units in the Philippines.cite web

Admissions

Each academic division at PLM has its own admission policy and retention criteria for prospective students. Admission to one academic division does not guarantee admission to another. In order to maintain the student's non-paying status at PLM, his grades should fall within the prescribed General Weighted Average (GWA) of the specific college or school he intends to apply to.

Undergraduate Admission

PLM receives thousands of applications from all over the Philippines every year. Academic screening continues from admission until graduation. Graduates or senior students of the Division of City Schools-Manila and private high schools recognized by the Department of Education results may be admitted as freshmen to PLM based on the following:
* General Weighted Average (GWA) obtained in the Fourth Year Level in High School of 85% or its equivalent
* Performance in the PLMAT

In the previous years, an applicant for admission could either be a Manila resident, Manila-born, or both except for high school students from other cities and provinces who belong to the upper 4% of the graduating class. [http://www.mb.com.ph/issues/2008/09/09/YTCP20080909134642.html Youth and Campus: Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila] . Accessed October 04, 2008.] In 2005, only high school graduates who were residents of the City of Manila were allowed to take the PLMAT, and honor students (Valedictorian, Salutatorian, First to Third Honorable Mentions) who were graduates of the Division of City Schools-Manila were automatically qualified for admission.cite web

Acceptance Rate

For the school year 2006-2007, the acceptance rate of the PLM Main Campus is mere 3 percent; it admitted 2,000 high school graduates, who met the cut-off scores required by the college in which they applied for, out of 6,000 pre-selected applicants, from more than 40,000 college applications nationwide.cite web

In the recent years, there has been a decrease in the number of students from low-income families that pass the PLMAT and an increase in the number of students from middle-income families that enroll at the PLM. Because of this, the administration carried out the "PLM Big Brother" project, which aims to provide review classes to graduating high-school students who come from the poor families in Manila and enable them to be on equal footing with students coming from middle-income families, who normally perform bettern in the PLMAT. This is also a way of upholding the university's life purpose and mission.

The student's academic performance in the General Education Program (GEP) is the basis for his acceptance to the specific college where the degree is offered.

Graduate Admission

Each graduate school has its own criteria for admission, which may include the General Weighted Average (GWA) obtained by the applicant in the college where he received his undergraduate education, recommendation letter from the institution or organization from where he is affiliated with, and an admission essay, panel interview, and/or set of proficiency examinations!

cholarship

The scholarship entitles the student to free tuition fee for "non-paying students" (students who are either Manila-born or Manila-resident) and partial to minimum tuition-fees for "paying students" (students from other cities and provinces) until completion of a college degree. Minimal fees are charged for other services such as library facilities, student publications, student services, and physical education facilities.

Retention Policy

On October 21, 2005, the revised retention policy per Board of Regents' Administrative Order No. 19, which requires freshmen to maintain a General Weighted Average (GWA) of 2.25 and a grade of 2.50 in the higher years on a semestral basis to attain a "Good Standing (GS)" status, initially took effect at PLM. According to the new guidelines, students who fall short of the required GWA are now allowed to shift to another academic program at PLM that has a lower retention criteria and will not lose their "non-paying status". The "Warning status" was removed and students who fail to meet the criteria of GS are automatically given the "Probationary status". Probationary students may regain their GS status immediately after a semester of satisfactory performance.cite web

] If a probationary student flanks a certain subject or has incurred a GWA that is below the acceptable standards required by the academic program or college, he is instantly subjected for expulsion, and is given the option for transfer to another university.

Every college has imposed its own retention criteria. For instance, in the PLM College of Accountancy & Economics, a GWA of 2.00 must be maintained without failing grades in all major subjects. In the PLM College of Mass Communication, students must maintain an average of 2.25 or better without failing grades in all major subjects or must not have more than two major subjects with grades of 3.00 or a combination of 2.75 and 3.00. Psychology students must maintain a mark of 2.50 in all psychology subjects and 2.00 in English or major subjects for Bachelor of Science in Tourism, Hotel and Travel Industry Management. In the case of the PLM College of Nursing, students with a GWA of 1.75 or better but with failing grades are considered disqualified from the said program.cite web

Any student may shift from one college to another during the second semester but must satisfy the specific criteria of the degree program and be able to finish the program within the prescribed time frame.

In the previous years, students who failed to meet the PLM standards were given reconsiderations to be readmitted in the University. However, this practice is no longer permitted under the current academic policy so as not to compromise PLM's status as one of the country's top universities.cite web

Enrollment

Enrollment scheme

PLM has a three-step enrollment scheme:
* college advising process - this is conducted at least a day prior to the scheduled enrollment day; the grades of the student are assessed to determine whether that student falls into the "paying" or "non-paying" status
* enlistment process - the student is given the enrollment stub to be presented to the Cashier
* payment process - the enrollment stub is presented to the Cashier for payment of the required amount and/or the "Student's Enrollment Assessment Form" are printed by the Registrar's Computer Services

tudent enrollment

For the last three years, there has been a gradual decrease of student enrollment at the PLM Main Campus. This has been ascribed to the University's student selectivity and retention policy.cite web

tudent life

Students of the PLM have access to a variety of activities while not attending class. The campus' proximity to several attractions in Manila makes excursions to local museums, theaters, or other entertainment venues relatively quick and easy.

The PLM Main Campus offers intramural sports, cultural shows, 390 free Internet stations,Mayuga, Jonathan. " [http://www.businessmirror.com.ph/0201&022008/headlines012.html Tamano vows ‘heights of excellence’ for PLM] ." "Business Mirror, Vol. III, No. 86". February 01, 2008.] wireless fidelity facilities, and over 50 student and employee organizations. There are also religious groups such as "Youth for Christ" and "Bible Readers' Society". Fraternities and sororities play a role in the university's social life. There are also engineering projects teams, including the "Microcontrollers and Robotics Society", which placed first in national-level competitions, and debate teams such as the "Speech and Debate Society" and the "Economics Society". The university also showcases many community service organizations and charitable projects, including the "PLM Samaritans" and the "Brotherhood of Medical Scholars".

The university sponsors and implements a comprehensive student services program coordinated by the Office of Student Affairs. The PLM President's Committee on Arts and Culture (PCAC) is responsible for building up the artistry and craft of the PLM students through its different cultural organizations such as the "Hiyas ng Maynilad Dance Troupe", "PLM Rondalla", "The PLM Chorale", and the "Mabuhay Marching Band". "Magwayen Creative Scholars' Guild" is the pioneer theater arts group of PLM created in 1998.

The student government at PLM is the "Supreme Student Council", governed by a student elected as president. Aside from the Supreme Student Council, which acts as the central student government body within the PLM, there are college-based student councils as well. Two (2) primary student political parties annually participate in the student council elections, namely " [http://www.geocities.com/tugon_rescue/ Partidong Tugon] " and " [http://bukluran.wordpress.com/about/ Bukluran Party (Solidarity)] ".

A longstanding goal of some members of the student government and political parties is to create a student designated seat on the Board of Regents, the university's governing body. Such a designation would achieve parity with other State Universities that have student regents.

Athletics

PLM regularly organizes inter-university invitational games and dual meets in some sporting events, participates in the Manila Youth Games, and conducts its very own "Student Intramural Games" that is participated in by more than 10 college teams of the PLM Main Campus.

The University is not a member of any athletic associations in the Philippines. Due to the high cost of membership for the University Athletic Association of the Philippines, joining the said league has never been a priority of the PLM administration.Rebuca, Bridgette Ann M. "PLM: Staring at the big leagues." "Ang Pamantasan, Vol. XXIII, No. 3". September 10, 2003.]
