How to Self-Advise in LST-ISIS
1. Enter your isis account and click on the "Self-Advise" tab. For STB students, choose your year level in the prospectus (1 to 4). Your prescribed courses in the STB curriculum will appear.
2. Click on your program or programs. For each program, drag a recommended course in your prospectus from the right to the section on "Advised Courses" on the left side of the screen. Or specify a Course Field utilizing the drop down menu (Systematic, Biblical, Moral Theology, etc.) then click the Search icon. Or search the catalogue number or course title directly at the top-center section of the screen then click the green + or add button.
Theo 200-level courses are alloted for MA and STB students; Theo 300-level courses for STL, STD and PhD students; Sp for Professional Diploma in Family Ministries; MTP for Certificate in Migration; BPM for Certificate in Basic Pastoral Ministry; SS for MA and PhD Biblical Exegesis.

Electives in the STB Program are those courses which are not required in the STB curriculum, i.e., courses which are not listed in the STB plan of study (click here). Hebrew, Greek and Latin may count as electives in the STB Program. Electives in the MA, STL and PhD programs are those courses which do not belong to one's chosen field of concentration.
In LST-ISIS, ​​MA and PhD students are also assigned with the "NonCert" or Non-Certificate Program. It is from this Program that they advise themselves in non-Ateneo courses​, i.e. courses that are only available at LST. These are​ Theo Meth​ (Methods and Materials of Research)​, PrEng​ (Propaedeutic English)​, Theo Syn​ MA (MA Compre Exam Review)​, Spa 201​ (Spanish and other modern languages)​, etc.​

4. The Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs will confirm your self-advised courses on or before July 25, the first day of online enlistment and sectioning at LST-ISIS. After approval, the notation "Advisement Approved" will appear in the Self-Advise section of your LST-ISIS account.
