Ateneo college application period for SY 2022-2023 begins September 6

The application period for first-year college admission for School Year 2022-2023 will begin on Monday, 6 September 2021.

As previously announced, the Ateneo College Entrance Test (ACET) has been suspended as part of the application process, due to the prevailing health emergency that will prevent the effective and safe administration of the exam.

Similar to last year’s process, acceptance to Ateneo de Manila University will be based on academic and non-academic performance from Grades 9 to 11; batch ranking at the end of Grade 11; personal admission essays; recommendation letters; extracurriculars; and disciplinary records. The application process will also be fully online.

Application period for transfer entry will be announced separately.

Further details will be announced on the opening of applications. To guide prospective students the University will regularly release updates and guides at the Ateneo college application portal,
