Dresscode for Scholars
University Dress Code
Undergraduate students shall, at all times, attend their classes in their prescribed uniform, unless the student has a written permit from the OSDS, which must be shown upon demand by the University authorities.
They must wear the prescribed uniform during weekdays should they wish to enter the University, regardless if it is their free day.
PE, CWTS and ROTC uniforms are not to be used as substitute, unless it is the only class/subject they have for that given day. If their first class is PE, the shirt may be worn upon entry to the University but not the shorts and should immediately change with their proper uniform right after their PE class.
Laboratory uniforms/attires are allowed to be worn during their laboratory classes only.
For students who will have their thesis defense, presentations, On-the-Job Trainings and any activity which require them to wear corporate attire, skirt length should not exceed two (2) inches above the knee and the neck line of the blouse should not be plunging.
PLM Identification Cards
All students shall wear their official identification cards at all times, within University premises or during University sanctioned activities. No student shall use the ID or registration form of another, and/or lend his ID or registration form for somebody else's use. They must bring at all times their registration form and present it to the Guard on duty should they be required to do so.
Salient Provision: Among other provisions, the Revised PLM Student Manual underscores that the Scholar's Uniform shall be worn during weekdays, even during free days.
