Does Benilde follow a semester, trimester, or quarter system for the school calendar?

Benilde follows a trimester schedule. There are 14 weeks in one calendar term followed by at least a 1-week break. The midterm exams happen on the 7th week and the final exams on the 14th week.

For undergraduate programs, we have a bridging term that happens 2 to 3 weeks before the next academic year. It allows students to catch up with back subjects in the Foundation/Core and General Education courses. It also gives students a headstart in courses that are output-intensive. These are identified in the program flowchart.

What is a trimester?

A trimester divides the school year into three parts. It is usually composed of 14 weeks (or three months and two weeks), with the midterm exams scheduled on the 7th week and the final exams on the 14th week. Students take different subjects every term.

Does Benilde accept students with special learning needs?

As an inclusive educational institution, students with special learning needs are very much welcome in Benilde. We also have dedicated offices that provide support and services for their needs like the Center for Inclusive Education (CIE).

What is the difference between De La Salle University-Manila and De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde?

De La Salle University-Manila and De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde are both members of De La Salle Philippines (DLSP) and are managed by the De La Salle Brothers. In the Philippines, there are 16 De La Salle District Schools.

DLSU-Manila and Benilde do not offer the same degree programs. DLSU-Manila offers more traditional degree programs such as engineering, business, and the sciences. Benilde offers non-traditional, innovative, and industry-responsive degree programs such as hotel, restaurant, and institution management, multimedia arts, fashion design, export management, among others.

If I get accepted in Benilde, does it also mean that I’m accepted in other De La Salle Philippines schools and vice versa?

Each school under De La Salle Philippines has its own application procedures and admission qualifications. Getting accepted into one school under DLSP does not guarantee acceptance into other DLSP schools.
