Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, University Councils across the UP System unanimously decided not to hold the UPCAT for the admission of First Year students in AY 2021-2022. Instead, the UP Office of Admissions is currently modifying the freshmen admissions system for the next intake year.
UP officially welcomed in an online ceremony its newest batch of Oblation Scholars, freshman qualifiers with the highest UPCAT scores and University Predicted Grades.
The University of the Philippines is advising UPCAT applicants who shared their UPCAT Online credentials—usernames and passwords—to unauthorized third parties to immediately change the usernames and/or passwords to their other accounts in order to safeguard their data privacy rights. When practicable, users should activate a two-step verification or other modes of multifactor authentication in order to protect their accounts.
The University of the Philippines Office of Admissions is postponing the release of the UP College Admissions Test (UPCAT) 2020 results, which was originally scheduled on 30 March 2020. Please wait for further announcement.
