The Iloilo State University of Fisheries Science and Technology (ISUFST) is gearing up for its second entrance examination for the upcoming school year 2024-2025, to be held this Saturday, May 4. This second batch provides another opportunity for prospective students who missed the first entrance exam.

Due to strong public demand, ISUFST extended the application period for the entrance exams until April 26, allowing more students and their families a chance to be part of the dynamic learning environment offered by the university. Applications were accepted both online and in-person, signaling the university’s flexible approach to accommodate interested applicants.

The entrance examination will take place across all five campuses of ISUFST, with results expected to be released by May 10. Following the entrance exams, students will undergo subsequent testing phases depending on their program of choice, including aptitude and skills tests scheduled from May 13 to May 18. The selection process will culminate with interviews from May 27 to May 31, leading to the announcement of the final list of admitted students on June 5.

Dr. Michael B. Dizon, Director of the University Learning Assessment Center (ULAC), emphasized the significance of this second examination: “The second batch of examination is worth it for those who missed the first. It’s a big chance and a rare opportunity. The university will only accept 900 freshman students for SY 2024-2025. Therefore, this will be a selection of the best students as part of the admission process.”

The university president, Dr. Nordy Siason, Jr., also expressed his enthusiasm for the additional exam batch, highlighting the university’s commitment to academic excellence and accessibility. “We’re thrilled to offer this second chance in response to high demand, reaffirming our commitment to academic excellence and accessibility. This initiative ensures every aspiring student can join our programs that hope to form leaders who pursue excellence in all areas, poised to impact our community positively,” said Dr. Siason.

ISUFST, which traces its roots back to 1957 and became a university in 2023, offers a wide range of programs accredited by the CHED Certificate of Program Compliance (COPC) in fisheries, agriculture, educaiton, management, and technology, among others. The university’s extensive curricular offerings, including new post-graduation programs planned for the next school year, are designed to prepare students for diverse professional fields.
