Welcome, future Lasallians!

In the coming months, you will be making one of the most important decisions of your life - choosing the right university for you.

This task is made extra challenging with what is happening in the world today. The global pandemic forced us to rethink, recalibrate, and focus on what was important in our lives. With the challenges, we discovered new things about our abilities in responding and adapting to whatever the situation requires of us.

Lasallians R.E.A.C.H.

In response to the challenges in academic learning brought about by the pandemic, De La Salle University launched the Lasallians Remote and Engaged Approach for Connectivity in Higher Education (R.E.A.C.H.). We are now responding to this situation by fully adopting an alternate mode of education that DLSU has initiated more than ten years ago, which is technology-enabled or blended learning.

For DLSU, this is the most viable and flexible alternative for our students. It emphasizes the importance of engagement between faculty and students. Learn more about Lasallians R.E.A.C.H.


DLSU will not administer the DLSU College Admission Test (DCAT) for A.Y. 2021-2022 Freshman Admissions due to the current situation in the country. Admission to the University and the chosen degree program will be based on an applicant’s high school academic records and other criteria, such as recommendations provided by subject teachers/high school principals and guidance counselors, class rank, and all pertinent information indicated on the application form. You may view the complete admission procedures here.
