FAQs on UP High School in Iloilo Admission

HOW CAN I APPLY FOR ADMISSION TO UPHSI?

The University of the Philippines Visayas has adopted a policy of democratized admission for students in the high schools of the U.P. System. Under this policy, "Every high school in U.P. is a program for helping socioeconomically disadvantaged but academically-qualified students gain access to tertiary education in U.P." 

Pursuant to the U.P. Policy for Democratization of Admission, the UP High School in Iloilo admits incoming Grade Seven students from low-income families. As such, the High School is an experimental laboratory for innovative teaching strategies designed to make up for this disadvantaged group's training in order to better prepare them for access to tertiary education, particularly in U.P.
