The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila has updated the list of freshmen students eligible for admission for Academic Year 2021-2022.

As PLM recognizes the right of every Filipino citizen to free quality tertiary education, it accepted over 6,000 applicants for the upcoming school year.

“PLM is taking yet another bold step of accepting a high number of students despite the pandemic. As a publicly funded academic institution, PLM recognizes the right of Filipinos to accessible quality education and help them realize their dreams to become professionals and leaders in their chosen fields,” PLM President Emmanuel Leyco said.

“This recognition becomes especially important amid the unprecedented challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic,” he added.

Please note that the course assignments on the list were determined based on student preference and academic qualifications, and the university’s technical capabilities and academic resources.

Two-thirds of the successful applicants are female while the rest are male. Bulk of the incoming students are residents of the City of Manila, in keeping with the University’s mandate of providing access to education to those residing within the city.

Nearly half of them pursued the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Strand in high school, followed by about one-fourth who took up Accountancy, Business and Management.

By academic unit, the PLM Business School will accept 28% of the incoming freshmen, followed by the College of Engineering and Technology (23%) and the College of Education (14%). Top course choices were Accountancy, Civil Engineering, Nursing and Psychology.

Online freshmen enrollment starts on July 19 through the PLM website. Students must fill up the online forms and upload an e-copy of their Grade 12 card or Form 138, as well as a copy of their PSA birth certificate.

If the Form 138 is not yet available, students may present their certificate of graduation or any similar document issued by their high school. They must submit the Form 138 within the first semester to complete the registration process.

Students should expect that the upcoming semester will continue to be administered through virtual and distance learning methods as the local COVID-19 outbreak is yet to be contained and mass gatherings remain limited.

Since its creation in 1965, PLM continues to fulfill its mandate of contributing to nation-building through the provision of quality education to the Filipino youth.
