If the required documents cannot be submitted, your application cannot be processed. For example, for Filipinos (other than naturalized Filipinos), a certified true copy of the birth certificate from the National Statistics Office (or a photocopy provided that the true copy can be shown for verification) is the only acceptable document to prove nationality. Therefore, in this case, we will not honor a passport to establish an applicant’s nationality.
For those applicants claiming dual citizenship, a letter from the Solicitor-General of the Department of Justice of the Philippines attesting to his/her nationality is required.

The entrance examination is usually given on the second Saturday of January every year. The precise date of the examination will be posted on our website: http://medadmission.ust.edu.ph
For students who have taken the MCAT, the results of this test may be considered in lieu of the entrance examination score.
Yes. The application fee is two thousand pesos (PhP 2,000), for local citizens; three hundred twenty US dollars (USD320) for applicants from foreign countries.
In addition, the following applicants will have to pay an Out-of-State fee of US $10,000, but only if accepted into the medical school:
Application fees should be paid as soon as the application form is received. Deadline for payment of the application fee is on the posted deadline for submission of all required documents.
Out-of-state fees are paid upon enrollment.
Aside from the application fee, there are no other fees related to the application process that have to be paid.
However, once accepted to the medical school, a reservation fee of PhP 30,000 will have to be paid within one week of the release of the list of successful applicants. Please note that the reservation fee, although non-refundable, will be deducted from the matriculation fee for the first semester of the first year.
Application fees are non-refundable.
Out-of-State fees, paid on enrollment, are likewise non-refundable.
Applicants are chosen based on the following criteria:
The order in which these criteria are listed reflects the relative weight assigned to each. Graduates of UST will be awarded loyalty points; however, these points are not sufficient to outweigh poor scholastic performance in college, a low NMAT score, or a low rating in the entrance examination.
A dilemma exists for students graduating in June or July, since classes in the medical school begin in June. In order to resolve this, it has been decided upon that these students may enroll, provided that they secure a letter from their dean stating that they are expected to finish their course by June or July. This letter should be submitted together with the other documents required from the applicant. If the student is not able to graduate by June or July (e.g., due to failures), his/her slot and other non-refundable fees that have been paid will be forfeited.
For those graduating in August (or beyond), please apply for the next school year.
