E-Prerog Guidelines

  1. Instructors and professors are unable to overbook/add students in their classes.

  2. In order for classes to begin in an orderly manner, no prerog requests will be entertained beginning January 12, 2017, 2:00 p.m.

  3. Instead of falling in line/hunting the professors, students are advised to fill out the survey form. Submit one form for each class you are vying for. For instance, if you want to enroll in Math 1 and the schedule of Math 1 THR or Math 1 THU fits in your schedule, you may submit two survey forms: one for Math 1 THR and another one for Math 1 THU. This will increase the likelihood that you get a Math 1.

  4. Once a slot becomes available, the first student in the queue will be informed via SMS or email. He/She should reply ASAP to signify his intention to avail the course, lest it would be given to the next student in the queue.

  5. It is the students' responsibility to ensure that the CRS will accept your enlistment. Any red tags, such as conflict or ineligibility will nullify your prerog request.

  6. Only then will the student visit the institute for his/her form 5A to be signed. The prerog requests of the same student on the same courses shall be voided.



"While the Institute offers courses in both pure and applied mathematics, there is no division of the faculty into the traditional pure and applied departments. This stems from the common philosophy shared by the faculty that good mathematics in all areas require imagination coupled with discipline and rigorous thinking."IMath Philosophy
