April 26th

Central Philippine University - CPU


This is what we all have been waiting for, but let's hold our horses for one bit, and try to understand the following:

This April 28, Centralite will officially have the FIRST BATCH of yearbook distribution at the Alumni Promenade and Concert Park (APCP). Yehey! ONLY 720 COLLEGE GRADUATES however will receive their yearbook on this date (Read till the end to find out when the second batch will be). To be guided properly, please read through the steps in getting your yearbook.

STEP 1: Secure your requirements
All claimants should ready their SCHOOL ID and must not have an outstanding balance.

Possible Scenarios: (1) If someone will get the yearbook on behalf of the claimant, an authorization letter and an ID of the authorized should be presented. (2) If the student has an outstanding balance, he needs to settle his balance first. To know if he has an outstanding balance, please check with the finance office or speak with your respective editor. (3) If claimants settled their accounts between February 2019 till present, they should bring a PHOTOCOPY of their receipt.

STEP 2: Get your claim number.
We will serve by first-come-first-serve basis. To claim a number, the claimant has to line up at the facade of the APCP. You can only enter through the facade, the entrance in between the two restrooms. Your requirements will be checked, and if you are eligible to get a yearbook, a number will be given to you. ONE PERSON can only claim ONE NUMBER. NO FIXERS.

STEP 3: Line up in your respective station.
Please check the other post for your station number. Everyone is divided in alphabetical order.

STEP 4: Present requirements
A distributor will be assigned to every station.The distributor will ask you to present your ID again. Then, if you need to provide proof that you paid your last balance with CPU, submit a photocopy of your receipt. If you are a representative, you also have to leave your letter to the distributor.

STEP 5: Claim your yearbook!
You have to affix your signature; you have to smile, and bring your yearbook with you. Before you leave, you may take a selfie or grouphie by the exit! You surely are lucky for being one of the 720!

STEP 6: Exit the Promenade
To avoid heavy traffic, everyone will be required to exit on one side only. If you have concerns related to the yearbook, there is a desk where editors may attend to you.

WHAT: Yearbook Distribution (First Batch)
WHEN: April 28, 2019 at 10AM till 12N (Distribution of claim number starts at 9:30)
WHERE: Alumni Promenade and Concert Park
WHAT TO BRING: School ID (if necessary, authorization letter and photocopy of receipt)
HOW: Follow the guidelines

P.S. The second batch will be on May 8. ALL SUBSCRIBERS of all levels (elementary, junior high, senior high, college, post-grad) will be able to claim their yearbook upon completion of above-mentioned conditions. Please wait for further announcement.
