ACET Schedule and Important Dates

Last updated: July 6, 2009

Studying at the Ateneo de Manila University requires no small amount of discipline and organization, particularly when the hell weeks come along.  In fact, new students will quickly realize that the need to develop these traits comes way before they’re even accepted into the college.

To help, the university’s Office of Admission and Aid has released the latest application schedule for the year.  Let’s take a closer look at it and get organized.

The ACET Application Period

June 15, 2009 – August 14, 2009:  for incoming Metro Manila freshmen, school year 2010 – 2011

June 22, 2009 – August 14, 2009:  for incoming provincial freshmen, school year 2010 – 2011

June 15, 2009 – December 16, 2009:  application form issuance for transfer applicants for school year 2010-2011

November 16 – December 16, 2009:  registration for transfer applicants for school year 2010-2011

If the early bird gets the worm, then the early applicant gets the first crack at a much-coveted slot in the university.  Ateneo has a bit of a head start over other universities in this respect.

Regardless of whether you’ll be coming from Metro Manila or the province, keep in mind that the deadliest deadline for sending in your completed application forms is at 5:00 p.m.

ACET Testing Dates

September 19 and 20, 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m./ 1:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.:

for Metro Manila incoming freshmen, school year 2010-2011

September 19, 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.:  for Metro Manila incoming freshmen, school year 2010-2011

January 16, 2009, 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.:  for provincial transfer applicants, 2010-2011

January 17, 2009, 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.:  for Metro Manila transfer applicants, 2010-2011

The ACET schedule is a little different from other universities’ entrance exam schedules in the sense that you only get one weekend for it this year.  Please note that the applicable provincial testing centers are the ones in Zamboanga City, Naga, Iloilo, Davao, Cebu and Cagayan de Oro.  For more information on other testing centers, kindly visit this site.

As is the case with the application period, the transfer students get a different schedule.  Depending on where they’ll be going, they’ll be taking on either January 16 or January 17, instead.

Releasing of Results

My contacts at the Loyola Schools Office of Admission and Aid have told me that the release date for the ACET results will be around the second week of January 2010.  Since the transfer applicants get to take the test a bit later, they’ll get wind of their results sometime in May of the same year.

As of the time of this article’s writing, no specific release dates have been given, so feel free to check with the nice folks at the said office.  You may get in touch with them in a number of different ways.

If you’d rather drop by in person, the Metro Manila campus is located along Katipunan Avenue in Loyola Heights, Quezon City.  Alternatively, you may call them at 426-6001. It’s a trunk line that connects to all school departments, so just press the appropriate number or ask the operator to connect you to the College Office of Admission and Aid.

  1. Ateneo de Manila University has now opened the ACET application period for School Year 2011-2012. Aspiring ADMU freshmen and transfer students can now get their application form from ADMU Loyola Heights Campus, Quezon City (Office of Admission and Aid, Kostka Hall).

    Read ACET for SY 2011-2012 Application Ongoing for the most recent ACET (SY 2011-2012) application and exam schedule.

  2. When will the application forms for ACET sy 2011-2012 released? If it is already released, when will be the deadline of it?

    Thank You

    • Hi Josef,

      Ateneo de Manila University hasn’t yet released official word about their next ACET. However, ACET application forms normally become available mid-November and submission deadline is usually set one month after the application period commences (so that would be mid-December).
