UP Visayas signed a Memorandum of Agreement with St. Anthony’s College (SAC) of San Jose de Buenavista, Antique for UPV to develop an electronic registration system called eRegistration System for Educational Institutions or eRSEI to be used by SAC. In return, SAC will provide the funds, the environment, infrastructure and other support needed by the UPV IT personnel to develop the program. The MOA was signed on August 16, 2016, UPV Miagao campus.

UPV Chancellor Rommel A. Espinosa signed the MOA together with Rev. Fr. Edione R. Febrero, SAC College President while Prof. Emilia Encarnacion Yap, UPV Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Ms. Leda T. De Gracia, SAC Vice-President for Administration served as witnesses.

Febrero and Espinosa both expressed that a fruitful collaboration between UPV and SAC would go beyond the MOA signing.

The UPV team who will develop the eRSEI is led by Ms. Rina-Joy Ambatang as project leader and lead developer; Herbert Nalagay and Vanessa Coo as application developers; Sharon Millan and Jose Neil Hortillo as quality assurance specialists; and Pablo Española, Sr. as systems analyst/quality assurance specialist.

UPV has long been using an online registration system called the Computerized Registration and Student Information System (CRSIS) which was developed by the UPV Data Information Systems Office in collaboration with the UPV Office of the University Registrar. It was implemented in 2005.

Also present during the signing were SAC Finance Officer, Mr. Ruben Seballos; SAC Community Extension and External Relations Officer, Mr. Pedro Altar III; UPV Vice-Chancellor for Research and Extension, Prof. Ricardo Babaran and several UPV staff.
