ADMISSION INTO THE UNIVERSITY

A. Through the UP College Admission Test (UPCAT) - Choice of Campus and Degree Program

You are eligible to apply for first-year admission to UP through the UPCAT for SY 2025-2026 if:
  • You are a senior high school student expecting to graduate in 2025 in time for the opening of SY 2025-2026, OR you are a senior high school graduate from 2024 or earlier provided you have not taken any college courses before the opening of SY 2025-2026; AND
  • You have final grades in Grades 8 to 11 by end of SY 2023-2024; AND
  • You have not completed your application in UPCA 2021, UPCA 2022, UPCA 2023, UPCAT 2024 nor taken the UPCAT before.

The UPCAT consists of 4 subtests: Language Proficiency (in English and Filipino), Reading Comprehension (in English and Filipino), Science, and Mathematics. Standardized UPCAT scores are combined with the composite of final grades in Grades 8 to 11 to determine the admission score ("UPG"). To implement the policy of democratic access, UP also considers socioeconomic and geographic factors in its admission process. (https://upcat.up.edu.ph)

SELECTION for a Campus

Admission into UP is very selective due to high demand. Applicants come from very diverse backgrounds but they are all ranked based on indicators of academic preparedness for university life.

  • Selection for admission to a campus is based on the applicant's rank, campus quota and/or cut-off grade.
  • A successful applicant can receive an offer of admission to only one of the applicant's UP campus choices.
SELECTION for a Degree Program

The successful applicants for a given campus are ranked according to grade predictors and quotas of their chosen degree programs. Some degree programs are more competitive due to high demand.

  • Applicants should choose only degree programs they are interested in. If an applicant is not successful for his/her first choice of campus, the process continues in order of priority of the remaining choices.
APPLICATIONS

All forms for UPCAT shall be submitted online (except for certain regional areas). Applicants shall electronically accomplish Form 1 (Personal Data Sheet) in the period April 15 - May 15, 2024 and Form 2B (High School Record) on August 12 to September 15, 2024, and upload their photo and electronic signature. Some questions in Form 1 will be used for research and have no bearing in the evaluation for admission. However, we encourage applicants to fill out information as completely as they can to enable the University to conduct better analyses of data. High Schools shall be requested to (i) log on to the School Profile link beginning April 15, 2024 to accomplish Form 2A (High School Profile) to inform and/or update the university on the most recent school information relevant to the application, and (ii) submit to UP beginning August 12, 2024 a certified copy of the applicant's Student Permanent Record/Form137/SF10, signed by the authorized school representative and enclosed in a sealed envelope with a wet signature of such representative on the flap.

APPEALS

In the event you are not admitted into the degree program and/or UP campus of your choice, the UPCAT portal will provide you with access to the DIWA Portal which indicates degree programs with available slots and/or UP campuses for which you are eligible to apply. This portal, which is also managed by the UP Office of Admissions, makes use of the same email address and password that you used for submitting your UPCAT application. In order for UP to process your appeal, we will require you to indicate two (2) degree programs and/or a UP campus through such portal. In case your appeal is successful, you will be required by this portal to state whether you are accepting or declining the slot within a specified deadline, and if applicable to you, your assigned learner reference number (LRN).
