In line  with the procedures of Loyola Schools, Ateneo de Manila University, MA, PhD and DMin students of the Theology and Ministry Program (LST) are requested to comply with the following guidelines:

1. MA, PhD and DMin students will be allowed to enroll in Comprehensive Exams only after completion of course work. Hence, no course may be enrolled in the same semester as the Comprehensive Exam. For example, in order to take the Comprehensive Exam in the Second Semester, all course work and marks should have been completed in the First Semester.

2. Students in the MA major in Theological Studies, DMin and PhD Programs may enroll in Thesis or Dissertation Writing only after passing the Comprehensive Exam during the previous semester.

3. For MA-TH STUD students who are also in the STB Program, in order to defend their thesis (or its equivalent) in the Second Semester of Fourth Year, they are to: a) enroll in MA Comprehensive Exam in the First Semester of 4th year; b) take the STB Comprehensive Exam in the Second Semester, while enrolling in Thesis Writing 1 and 2 at the Ateneo; and c) enroll in thesis defense and defend the thesis before the end of the Second Semester.

Those who will not be able to defend their MA Thesis or its equivalent in the Second Sem of 4th Year STB should just enroll in STB-MA Compre Exam and enroll in Thesis Writing 1 and 2 and Thesis Defense in the succeeding semester.
