This came along with DLSU’s announcement that it has officially opened its freshman admissions for the upcoming Academic Year 2021-2022.

“This year, the University adopts a new admissions process and will not administer the DLSU College Admission Test (DCAT) due to the current situation in the country,” the University stated.

In place of the admission test, the DLSU said that applicants will be evaluated based on their academic record and other submitted credentials. 

“Admission to the University and the chosen degree program will be based on an applicant’s high school academic records and other criteria, such as recommendations provided by subject teachers/high school principals and guidance counselors, class rank, and all pertinent information indicated on the application form,” the DLSU said in its website.

Interested applicants for academic year 2021-2022 can view the procedure and guidelines at the DLSU website, while freshmen can apply online through the DLSU Online Application Facility.

Graduating students from public high schools can also apply for free, while details for scholarships are also available at dlsu.edu.ph/scholarships.
