Ateneo College Suspends Entrance Test for SY 2022-2023 Applications

Ateneo de Manila University is once again suspending the administration of the Ateneo College Entrance Test (ACET) as part of the first-year and transfer application process for School Year 2022-2023.

This is still due to the prevailing health emergency that will prevent the effective and safe administration of the entrance exam.

The application period for first-year college entry will open in early September 2021, with the exact date to be announced separately. Transfer applications, meanwhile, will be announced at a later date. More details regarding this year’s application cycle will be released in due time.

This will be the second year the ACET has been suspended as part of the Ateneo college application process. Similar to last year’s process, acceptance to the Loyola Schools 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.

To guide prospective students the University will regularly release updates and guides at the Ateneo college application portal,
