As posted on its official website, the university also announced that the application period would see the return of the Ateneo College Entrance Test (ACET) after it was suspended for two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The revived ACET is a refreshed version of the examination, seen to help assess applicants better,” Ateneo said.

Aside from performance in the ACET, acceptance to the 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.
