The Ateneo de Davao University seeks to enroll students of good character and demonstrated citizenship who enjoy being part of a community that welcomes and encourages the participation of each of its members. Students should have strong academic ability and should be seeking to build a record of personal achievements appropriate for college admission.

Admission is determined by the applicant’s fitness and preparation for the college programs, ability to contribute toward the enrichment of the undergraduate school community, and potential to be of service to one’s fellowmen within the context of national development.

The Committee on Admission and Scholarship is responsible for selecting new members of the student body. It bases its decisions principally on the results of the Qualifying Examination for AdDU College (QEAC), on past academic performance, on the recommendation of the teachers, and on information contained in the application form.

The University has four types of application for admission. (1) International applicants are those students who are non-Filipino and are not permanent residents of the Philippines under 13a to 13g visas and Filipinos who reside outside the Philippines. (2) Domestic applicants are Filipino citizens who reside in the Philippines. (3) Audit applicants are those students who intend to study in a non-degree-seeking program. (4) Transfer applicants are those students who have studied an undergraduate program in another higher education institution prior to application.

A small number of transfer students are accepted into the College. Criterion for such is above. In addition, the applicant must have finished a semester with at least 15 academic units in another university. If accepted, there is no guarantee as to the number of courses that will be validated from the previous school.
