In Enroll Classes: Step 1.a.1, what is the Class Number for?

If you searched for a course subject via the select subject button, you should have seen the list of class offerings. A sample would be:

step 11

In the above screen, ACCTMAN section 31 is of LEC (or Lecture) type and has an associated class number of 2177 (in parentheses). If you enter this class number in Step 7, this will be another way of selecting the class, instead of clicking the select subject link.

Back to top


In Enroll Classes: Step 1.a.3, what is the Permission Number for?

Permission numbers are basically used to restrict students from enrolling in a class directly without having gained permission from the Academic Assistant. You can leave this field blank because this is not going to used during this online enrollment.

Back to top


Why does the course appear with a space in between some of the letters or numbers?

The course code in animo.sys complies with international standards which require that course codes be composed of two (2) parts: the Subject Area and the Catalog Number. For DLSU, only the Graduate School complies with this standard because their courses follow this pattern, i.e. their first three characters become the Subject Area, while the last four characters become the Catalog Number. For the Undergraduates, the Subject Area was temporarily defined as the first two characters of the course code, while the Catalog Number was set to the last five characters of the course code.

In the online enrollment feature of animo.sys, searching for a class requires that the student enter only the subject area, that is why in the Online Enrollment Procedure:

When finding a course code in a long list of course offerings, the student may opt to use the Ctrl-F function. In the Online Enrollment Procedure, the following is stated (see notes in italics):

Where is the previous curriculum audit link?

Although there is no data available at the moment, you can access your course history (i.e. the new term for curriculum audit) by following the procedure below:

  1. From the main menu on the left side of your screen, click Self Service link.
  2. Under Student Admission, click Student Center link.
  3. Under the first area Academics, click My Academics link.
  4. In the second box, click View my course history link.

During the enrollment for AY 2013-2014, Term 1, data will be available here.

If I enrolled in two subjects with the same time schedule, why does the system only notify me that there is a conflict after I click the Finish Enrolling button?

Whereas online enrollment in MLS was designed to check for conflict everytime a class was saved, animo.sys was designed to check for conflict of classes only after the Finish Enrolling button has been clicked.

I am a BSA major student. What do I do if I am having a conflict in schedule when enrolling my modular subjects?

Please email animo.sys@dlsu.edu.ph to report this case. To facilitate the resolution of your problem, please do not forget to indicate your ID Number in your email.

Back to top


At what point in the new online enrollment process am I assured of a slot in the classes I added?

Similar to the process of checking for conflict of added classes, online enrollment in animo.sys assures you of a slot in your classes only after the Finish Enrolling button has been clicked.

Back to top


How can I be sure that I am already enrolled in my class/es?

In the Add Classes -- 2. Confirm classes page, you should have clicked the Finish Enrolling button and either:

  • After clicking the Finish Enrolling button, the Add Classes -- 3. View results page displays your classes with the status of a green check, i.e. Success: enrolled status OR
  • Access the Enrollment: Add Classes link again:
    • In the Add Classes -- 1. Select classes to add page, the My AY 2013-2014, Term 1 Class Schedule area displays your enrolled class/es with the status of a green check, i.e. Enrolled status.

If neither of the above is true in your case, you have not finished enrolling! Please follow ALL the steps in the Online Enrollment Procedure.

I am a graduating student, where do I apply for graduation? In the old system, there is a question "Graduating? (Y/N)".

There are TBAs in the mock enrollment course subjects. During the actual online enrollment, will there still be TBAs?

There might still be TBAs in the course subjects during online enrollment, but this will be considerably less.

During online enrollment, in case you need to inquire about these TBAs, please coordinate with your Academic Assistant.

Please call the Office of the University Registrar (524-4611 Ext 116) to relay your concern to Mr. Niñolito Ramiro.

V. Others



I find the new enrollment process longer than in My.LaSalle; the new design, not easy to use. Will the design change in the actual online enrollment for AY 2013-2014, Term 1?

No, the design will not change during the actual online enrollment. Your concern is completely understandable. Whenever a new system is used, it seems difficult because you are not familiar with it. In time, you will get used to the flow.

Back to top


The design is simplistic. Will this be changed?

The design of the system cannot be changed drastically. Some changes can be expected in terms of the color scheme, but the overall design will remain.

The changing of the color scheme is being scheduled.

My friend was able to access and enroll in 202.57.58.20 instead of doing it in animo.sys.dlsu.edu.ph. Is it an official site?

No. The official website of the new system is animo.sys.dlsu.edu.ph.

The mock enrollment was previously done in 202.57.58.19, please note that it is a test instance. Guessing and doing your enrollment in 202.57.58.20 or 202.57.58.19 is useless because it is a test instance of animo.sys.

Please check Section III of FAQ: How can I be sure that I am already enrolled in my class/es?
