U.P. Fiesta Opening Day is on Monday, 11 February 2013, as announced by the University Student Council Chairperson Trisha Ann Samantha Aligato. The program of ceremonies is 9:00 AM - 12:00 NOON. We look forward to seeing high school students visiting our campus on that day to consider UP Mindanao for their college education.
In connection with this, the results of the 2013 UP College Admission Test (UPCAT) are now available online and may be viewed at the website address, http://upcat.up.edu.ph. According to UP Mindanao University Registrar Professor Karen Cayamanda, the names that appear in the list are those who passed the UPCAT cut-off score and also passed the cut-off grade in the UP Constituent University of their 1st or 2nd choice (UP Diliman, UP Los Baños, etc.). However, applicants whose names do not appear on the list may still have a chance. It is possible that the applicant passed the UPCAT but was not accepted in their 1st or 2nd choice of campus due to a higher cut-off grade required by some campuses with overflowing applicants. The measure by which an applicant may know if he or she may be accepted in UP is the University Predicted Grade (UPG), which is in the letter that is sent by the UP Admissions Office by mail to all UPCAT-takers. Applicants with a UPG of 2.800 or better (e.g. 2.700) who wish to avail of a UP education are invited to apply as waitlisted in UP Mindanao. Waitlisted applicants in UP Mindanao have a higher chance of being accepted due to its smaller population. All UPCAT-takers may apply in the UP Mindanao waitlist while awaiting their written notice. In addition, UPCAT qualifiers who were accepted by other UP constituent universities (e.g. Diliman, etc.) but who prefer to study in the Mindanao region for their own reasons can apply as a waitlisted applicant in UP Mindanao.Interested parties may call the Office of the University Registrar at tel. no.
