College Admission Application

Requested from UP by G. Cayasan at 09:25 AM on Jul 18, 2022.
Purpose: College Admission
Date of Coverage: 07/16/2022 - 07/17/2022
Tracking no: #UP-353128735173

Cayasan 09:25 AM, Jul 18, 2022

Hi, I would like to request information regarding university application and entrance exams. I see a lot of information on the UP admission website but I don't see anything that caters to high school graduates pre-K12. I graduated high school on 2013, and during that time, although I was not able to take the UPCAT exam, I was able to take the DOST scholarship exam, and passed based on merit. I only got the chance this year to be able to get a college education because my aunts pledged to finance my studies, so I am checking for information online in order to enroll in UP.
