If you have dual citizenship – that is, a Filipino AND a Something-Else citizen – you will need to do the following after you received the letter informing you of your acceptance to the Ateneo de Manila University:
1. Confirm your slot
The decision letter from the ADMU will tell you how to do this. Be sure to follow the instructions to the letter and submit all the required forms by the designated deadline. The slots in each course or program are given away on a first-come, first-served basis; if you don’t immediately confirm your slot, you may lose your place in the course of your choice and you will thus have to settle for a spot in a different course. This course may not be as ideal as your original course, in which case you will have to file for a request to change course or wait until after your first year to shift courses.
2. Present the following documents at the Office of the Registrar.
You will need to go to the Office of the Registrar and present the following so you may be enlisted as a Filipino student:
- Philippine Passport (photocopy)
You must submit a photocopy of your Philippine passport and keep the original passport handy for verification purposes.
- Foreign Passport (photocopy)
Since you are a dual citizen, you will also need to show the Office of the Registrar a photocopy of your foreign passport. Of course, you’ll need to have the original with you for verification purposes.
3. Enroll for your first semester in the university.
Do this and let your ADMU student life begin!
