General Information on Application and Admission

Who may apply?

Depending on your school and graduation status, you will belong to a particular applicant type. This applicant type will determine your particular application pathway.

  • You are considered a first year college applicant if you are still in the last year of senior high school; or, if you have already graduated from senior high school, you have not yet taken any college or university units/courses before and/or during the application period.

  • You are considered a transfer applicant if you have already taken units/courses in college or university.

Your pathway will also depend on where you are studying.

  • You are considered a local applicant if you are studying in, or graduated from, a school inside the Philippines.

  • You are considered a foreign applicant if you are studying in, or graduated from, a school outside the Philippines.

General Admission Criteria

Admission to the Ateneo de Manila University Loyola Schools is determined by the applicant’s fitness and preparation for the college programs, ability to contribute toward the enrichment of the undergraduate school community, and potential to be of service to others within the context of national development.

The Committee on Admission and Aid is responsible for selecting the new members of the student body. It bases its decisions principally on the applicant’s past academic performance, on the recommendations of teachers, essay, and on information written down on the application form.
