THE University of the Philippines (UP) has started accepting applications for freshmen admission for the academic year 2022-2023.
“Due to the dynamic developments in the public health situation in the light of Covid-19 (coronavirus disease 2019), there is no final decision yet as to whether an admission test will be administered for intake year 2022-2023,” said UP in a statement.
Admission to the university is based on students’ performance in the UP College Admission Test (UPCAT) and their high school grades, but in the absence of the UPCAT, their high school credentials will be the basis to determine their UP Grade (UPG) that would factor on whether they will be accepted into their selected UP Campus and degree program.
Interested applicants must create an account on the admissions portal to upload the necessary documentary requirements including their fully accomplished personal data sheet, high school records, and a Department of Education (DepEd) Certificate of Registration or Permit to Operate if graduating in 2022 from a local HS or their HS diploma if graduated earlier.
There is also a non-refundable application fee for non-Filipino applicants: ₱450 for resident foreign applicants studying in the Philippines and US$50 for non-resident foreign applicants.
The deadline for filing applications is on Nov. 30, 2021.
