Thank you po. Dream school eh, though I might want to go to UPD someday. ^^ Of course! Malaking tulong po sa 'kin ang academic clinic! In fact, my lowerclassmen ask me for advice and UPCAT updates, and I know all those thanks to AC. ^^ Yes, I see those. I read them often and share them with my batchmates. ^^

USTET Application: Frequently Asked Questions

Is there an extension of the submission deadline for USTET requirements?

There is no official deadline extension for the requirements.  There are, however, special cases wherein the school accepts late submissions depending on the applicants’ reasons for doing so.  The process is a bit of a strict one, though.

 

All applicants have to do is to submit a letter to the dean of the specific college they’re applying for.  This letter must give their valid reasons for submitting late.  If the dean approves, the students may proceed with the rest of the application process as normal.  If not, then the school will advise students to reapply to another college within UST, as this is pretty much a refusal of their initial application.

 

Is there another USTET schedule?

There is one, in a sense.  UST offers special testing schedules for foreign students and applicants with special cases.

 

Regardless of their reason, students who wish to take the USTET on a date other than the official one must check with dean of the specific college they’re applying for (especially in July).  As with the case of late requirement submissions, the dean will be the one to determine the new schedule for them.

What do I do if I lose my USTET test permit?

UST will be happy to provide you with a new test permit, provided you submit certain other requirements in terms.  You will basically need three things:  an affidavit of loss (duly notarized by a lawyer), a couple of recent 2 x 2 ID photos and a 150-peso permit replacement fee.  Simply show up at the admissions office with these and claim your new permit there.

What do I do if I forget my USTET username/password or confirmation number?

Applicants need not worry about forgetting these because no online registration process exists.  The application system is done manually (even for foreign students).

 

There is, however, such a thing as a reference number for checking one’s application status online.  If ever you lose or forget this, simply call the UST Admissions Office at (02) 406-1611 local 8276 or (02) 309-7211 and  request for a new one.  They’ll provide it for you free of charge.
