University of Santo Tomas (UST) Admission 2022-2023 Online Application

For the Academic Year 2022-2023, the University of Santo Tomas Entrance Test (USTET) will not be administered in consideration of the quarantine restrictions that are currently in effect in the country.

Instead, admission to UST for the AY 2022-2023 shall be through the University of Santo Tomas Admission Rating (USTAR). The USTAR is a score that will be computed from a number of parameters derived largely from the academic performance and record of the applicant.

  1.  Application to the University of Santo Tomas is done online.
  2. Only College applicants who are currently enrolled in Grade 12 and Senior High School applicants who are currently enrolled in Grade 10 may apply.
  1. The following may apply provided they first secure a clearance from the UST Office of the Registrar before paying the application fee:
    > Passers of the Philippine Educational Placement Test and Alternative Learning System Accreditation and Equivalency (PEPT/ALS A&E certificate is required)
    > Graduates/Completers of previous school years (original Form 138-Report Card is required)
    > Applicants from foreign schools (Form 137-Transcript of Records is required)
    > Foreigners graduating from local schools (passport and ACR I-CARD are required)
  1. College applicants are allowed to choose two programs. Senior High School applicants are allowed to select one track/strand.

* Priority Program. This is the program that the applicant prefers to be admitted to. This is their primary interest in which they intend to further their knowledge and skills.
* Alternative Program. In case the applicant does not meet the criteria of his/her priority program, they will be considered in this program subject to the criteria set by the College. Once an applicant qualifies in their priority program, the alternative program is no longer processed.
* Track and Strands. These are Senior High School programs that equip students for employment, business, or further education. Select a track/strand that is aligned to your college plans or career goals.
