General Information on Freshman Admission

The University of the Philippines (U.P.)

The University of the Philippines is a center of the arts and sciences, the professions and health sciences, agriculture and forestry, fisheries and aquaculture. It has about 4,710 faculty and 46,192 students in nine campuses all over the country. The four biggest campuses are in Diliman in Quezon City, Los Banos, Manila and Iloilo/Miag-ao. There are also five regional campuses: Baguio, Cebu, Davao, San Fernando in Pampanga and Tacloban. Altogether, the University has 56 colleges offering 413 degree programs.

As the premier State University, U.P. offers a wide range of degree programs, conducts basic and applied research, and performs many public service functions. Aspiring for academic excellence, it maintains a high standard of education. For this reason and on account of its limited resources, U.P. has found it necessary to set quotas (i.e., upper limits on freshman admission) for each campus and for some degree programs (referred to as quota programs). "Non-quota programs" impose no upper limits. Some degree programs are offered in just one campus while others are offered in two or more campuses.
