The duly authorized staff of the library countersigns his ID card upon presentation of his Form 5 provided he has no outstanding account with the U.P. Library.

The ID card of a cross-registrant from within or outside the University and that of a special student and/or non-degree student is countersigned by the duly authorized staff provided he has paid his library fee and has no outstanding account with the U.P. Library.

The ID card of a student on residence will only be countersigned upon payment of his library fee as manifested in his Form 5. Otherwise, he is treated as an alumnus or former student.
