Bicol University Handbook (REPRINTED VERSION 2019)
This recent edition of the student handbook captures all the essential policies and regulations of the University with reference to pertinent Board
Resolutions and national laws, especially R.A. 10931 or the Universal.
Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act. It aims to serve as a guide for all students of the University, from the basic education department to the College of Medicine.
Since this is a comprehensive manual, not all specific rules and protocols
observed by the respective units may be included, so these concerned departments are encouraged to disseminate them through a separate information bulletin or during their own orientation programs at the beginning of the academic year. It is to be noted, however, that no information to be shared must run contrary to the provisions of this manual.
May all Buenos find this handbook a useful and reliable companion in their

Ultimately, may this document serve as a means for students to uphold the ideals of the University and exemplify the four pillars of Scholarship, Leadership, Character and Service.
