The University of the Philippines (UP) announces the opening of online applications for Admission of first-year students for AY 2022-2023. UPCA stands for Univesity of the Philippines College Admission (UPCA)



NO UPCAT For SY 2023-2024

This year, there will be no UPCAT same as last year. Students only need to apply and the UP Council will assess and evaluate the student’s credentials.

If you still did not know, UP decided to not administer a College Admission Test (UPCAT) for the School Year 2022-2023 because of health and logical issues brought about by the pandemic. It was a unanimous vote by the University Councils of all the UP constituent universities.

Additional Assessment for First-year students

Since first-year students don’t have an admission exam, the University Council approved an additional assessment for students to qualify for a degree program. Applicants will be notified of the assessment after the evaluation of their High school grades.
