Incoming Freshmen Students
The admission for freshmen students conforms to the admission/entrance requirements adopted by all institutions of higher learning in the Philippines as mandated by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). To be admitted to any of the programs/courses of the Institution, enrollees must be high school graduates from public or private schools recognized by the Department of Education (DepEd), whether general, national, vocational, trade, agricultural, fishery or newly nationalized high schools.

Qualified individuals interested in certain special courses without concern to earn credits may be admitted as Special Students. Under this status, they attend classes and take part in the course in which they are registered/enrolled but receive no credit for the work done.
A cross-enrollee is one who is a regular student of another school admitted to enroll one or more subjects in the University due to justifiable reasons. Before a student is even considered for admission as a cross-enrollee, he/she should present a certification of permission from the Registrar of the College where he/she is regularly enrolled.
A student employed in either private or public institution shall be subject to the usual admission requirements.
The admission of foreign students into any academic program or course in the University is governed by Executive Order no. 285 dated September 4, 2000.
The Executive Order provides that only aliens who seek temporary stay in the Philippines solely for the purpose of taking up a course higher than high school at a university, who are at least 18 years of age at the time of enrolment and have the means sufficient for their education and support of study shall be governed by the regulations on the admission of foreign students.
Foreign students shall communicate directly with the University and shall comply with the University’s requirements which shall include the following documents:
- Five copies of students’ personal history statement (PHS) duly signed by them, both in English and their national alphabet accompanied by their personal seal, if any, and containing among others, their left and right thumb prints and a 2x2-inch photograph on plain white background taken not more than six months prior to submission.
- A notarized affidavit of support including bank statements or notarized notice of grant for institutional scholars to cover expenses for the students’ accommodation and subsistence, as well as school dues and other incidental expenses.
- Scholastic records duly authenticated by the Philippine Foreign Service Post located in the student applicants’ countries of origin or legal residences.
