On Suspension of Classes 9 months ago

Please be informed that the suspension of online extramural class meetings will be on a per class basis -- your instructor will inform you via email (or text message/LMS announcement) should a class meeting be cancelled. This is because there are classes that agree to meet even if there is an announced suspension of classes and there are also classes that has assigned class work which may be done offline and will therefore consume a session. For your information and guidance.

Please keep safe.


AUGUST 15 (Sunday, 10 am): Module 1 Classes (no prerequisite classes)

AUGUST 22 (Sunday, 10 am): Higher Module Classes (with prerequisite classes)

Classes will start on September 11 and will run until November 13. 


Step 1: Create an ExCRS account

(Skip to Step 3 if you already have an ExCRS account)

Sign up for an ExCRS account online at uplinguistics.com. This is the only way for you to create an ExCRS account as the Department office is closed until further notice.

Prepare image files (JPG/PNG files that are not more than 2MB; do NOT upload PDF files) of your recent photo and a valid Philippine government-issued ID (with birthdate) for upload. Students (up to age 18) may upload their school ID or birth certificate in lieu of a government ID. You also have the option to take a webcam photo instead of uploading a recent photo.

Note to those below 18 years of age: Due to the collection of personal information, those below 18 years of age are required to inform their parent/legal guardian that they are creating an ExCRS account. Upon joining a class, minors may be requested to have their parent/guardian sign a consent form. We also offer Kids & Teens Classes during the Summer (April-May) and Midyear (June-July) terms. Young language learners from age 7 to 16 will be advised to enroll in the Kids & Teens Class. If an age 7 to 16 student is enrolled in a regular extramural class, the instructor and/or Department may remove you from the class and advise you to transfer to the Kids & Teens Class or to a different section.

These are the required information from the student: (1) NAME, (2) EMAIL, (3) PHONE NUMBER, (4) ADDRESS, (5) BIRTHDATE, (6) GENDER, (7) OCCUPATION, (8) AFFILIATION (School/Company/Organization; Write N/A if unaffiliated), (9) INDUSTRY (e.g. Education, Finance; Choose OTHERS if your industry is not available from the options or if unsure which industry you are in), and (10) PERSON TO CONTACT IN CASE OF EMERGENCY with CONTACT DETAILS (mobile number preferred).

Foreign nationals will be asked to present their residence permit/Philippine visa when creating an ExCRS account and upon enrollment in a course. The languages used for instruction are English and/or Filipino.

UPD students are still required to create an ExCRS account as this is a different registration system used by the UP Department of Linguistics for its Extension Program.

Step 2: Activate your ExCRS account

(Skip to Step 3 if you already have an ExCRS account)

Check your email for the activation link from linggextrams@kssp.upd.edu.ph and activate your account. The activation link is sent to your email as soon as we have successfully created your account. This may take up to 15 business days depending on the number of requests received so we advise that you create an account days before the start of registration. Please disable email services such as Boxbe as this will prevent you from receiving the link.

Use the activation link only ONCE and do not use this link to log into your account. You may access your account at uplinguistics.com after activation. Do not forget to check your SPAM folder too as the link might have been redirected there.

Send a follow-up email to linggextrams@kssp.upd.edu.ph if you have not received the activation link after 15 business days. Check the information you entered prior to sending your request as most issues arise from providing a wrong email address and incomplete name. Other issues include invalid/expired government ID. Make sure that the information you enter is the same as the one shown on your submitted government ID.

Step 3: Enlist in a class

During the registration period, log in to your ExCRS account at uplinguistics.com to register for a class. Check the list of offered classes and reserve a slot. Upon reservation of a slot, the student will be assigned a unique reservation code.

Please keep in mind that slots are taken on a first-come, first-served basis and reservation is done through the student’s ExCRS account. There are classes that no longer accept registration a minute after the registration starts due to high demand, so take note of the start date and time of registration.

If the class you are attempting to enroll in is already full, you may try to go on the waitlist. If a student with a reserved slot cancels their slot or their slot becomes forfeited due to non-payment within 2 business days, your waitlist rank will either go up or you will be granted a reserved slot if your waitlist rank was previously Rank 1. A maximum of 10 students may join the waitlist and class slots will be restricted to 18 students (15 students for Kids and Teens classes; note that some instructors may prefer more than 18 students in their class).

If your status changes from being WAITLISTED to RESERVED, you will receive an email notification or you may log in to your account to check your status. DO NOT PAY IF YOUR STATUS IS WAITLISTED. PAY ONLY WHEN YOUR STATUS IS RESERVED. You may check your status by logging in to your ExCRS account.

When in doubt, check your ExCRS account to know your registration/class status.

Step 4: Download Payment Slip

Download the payment slip (aka billing statement ) from your account. Note that the PAYMENT SLIP button will only appear when you have reserved a slot. Go to MY CLASSES and then at the rightmost column, click on PAYMENT SLIP. Mobile phone users may need to scroll to the rightmost of the page to access this button.

Note for N5 Intensive Class Students: The course fee is Php 10,500 as the N5 course is composed of three (3) modules — Japanese 1, 2, and 3. Each module is Php 3,500. The N5 Intensive Class may not always be offered and payment for this class is non-refundable. Check your schedule prior to enrollment in this class as this requires a commitment of 45 class sessions for a period of around 6 months.

Step 5: Pay for your slot/s


You have 2 business days (weekends and holidays excluded) to pay for your slot AND to request payment verification, otherwise, it will be forfeited. Pay and do Step 6 no later than 5 pm on the day of your reservation code expiry. The date of expiration of your slot (reservation code) is displayed on your ExCRS account so don’t forget to check it.

Payment may be done via:

(1) Landbank over-the-counter transaction (cash/check deposit) http://bit.ly/DirectBankDeposit

(2) Online bank transfer via PESONet only to Landbank http://bit.ly/BankTransferLandbank

(3) Landbank Link.BizPortal (Landbank ATM Card or VISA Debit Card; Cash payment via Landbank ATM or 7/11 convenience stores; Other Banks via PCHC PayGate: Union Bank, Robinsons Bank, BPI, RCBC ATM cards) -- with a convenience fee. http://bit.ly/LinkBizPortal

Payment via credit cards and installment is NOT an option yet.

Do not forget to get proof of your deposit -- validated bank deposit slip, transaction slip, a screenshot of PESONet pending/successful transaction, email, and/or SMS. Details should include the date and time of the transaction, and the amount transferred. These will be required in the next step. Note: If sending a pending transaction proof, email your successful transaction notification as soon as you can to linggextrams@kssp.upd.edu.ph.


(1) GCash and Paymaya payments are NOT allowed.

(2) Only PESONET transactions are accepted. DO NOT USE INSTAPAY — the transaction will not be accepted.

(3) You may use Unionbank, Eastwest, CIMB Bank, PNB, Metrobank, Robinsons Bank, ING, Bank of Commerce and of course, Landbank online bank transfers. Always check your bank updates as some may disable their PESONet facility.

(4) You may opt for cash payment at 7/11 but you have to go through the process of filling out a transaction request at Link.Biz. Note that your ExCRS reservation code and your Link.Biz reference may have different expiry dates. We will not extend your reservation code expiry. For more details, check http://bit.ly/LinkBizPortal. At 7/11, you have to process your payment request at their kiosk first (do not forget to include the applicable convenience fee), look for the MYEG PH biller, and then pay at the counter. PLEASE DON’T FORGET YOUR RECEIPT.

After payment, you are not done yet. Please do Step 6.

Step 6: Request to verify payment

Fill out the Verify Payment Request Form at bit.ly/verifypaymentrequest in order to initiate the process of verifying your payment by the UP Diliman Cash Office. You will upload your payment slip and proof of deposit/transaction. Make sure that the date and time of the transaction are included in the details of your proof.

Requests for verifying payments should be done no later than 5 pm on the day of your reservation code expiry. Failure to accomplish the form may result in your slot/s being forfeited.

Step 7: You are now enrolled!

After receipt of your Verify Payment Request, give us some time to process the requests. You will receive an email confirmation when your status changes to ENROLLED. You may also check your ExCRS account to know your status. Please note that this enrollment is provisional and is still subject to payment verification by the UP Diliman Cash Office. Should there be a problem with your payment, the Department or the UP Diliman Cash Office will get in touch with you. Otherwise, you may look forward to the start of the class.

Your instructor will email you the class details at least a day before your class starts. You may also get in touch with your instructor by emailing him/her. You may view the email address of your instructor by logging into your ExCRS account.


For those with a background in the language and would like to enroll in a higher module, you may take the self-assessment check at http://bit.ly/extramsplacement. Results will not be emailed but instead will be reflected on your ExCRS account no later than the start of registration.

The Self-Assessment Check will be reopened on August 1st and will be closed on August 11th (Wednesday, 5 pm).

Please note that we will NOT process any refund or transfer of class requests due to incorrect class placement when the class assignment was based on the student's responses in the self-assessment form.

Extramural Classes students who wish to continue to the next higher module need not take the placement exam when your class standing is already PASS.

Enrollment is closed.
