Is there a school uniform?

Students of the School of Hotel, Restaurant, and Institution Management (SHRIM) have uniforms that are enforced strictly. This is because they are being trained to meet the expectations of the industry.

Students of the School of Management and Information Technology (SMIT) and School of Diplomacy and Governance (SDG) are required to come in business attire on some days of the week.

Other schools, such as the School of Design and Arts, don’t have uniforms, but the College has a dress code that students must follow. The dress code helps ensure that students come to school in proper attire.

Do you accept international students? 

For undergraduate programs, yes, we welcome international students. We also assist our students in applying for student visas. To qualify as an international student applicant, you need to:

  • Be a Grade 12 Senior High School student eligible to proceed to college and have not yet enrolled in any tertiary education institution in the Philippines or abroad
  • Have a valid passport with a corresponding tourist visa
  • Documents submitted from outside of the Philippines must be authenticated or apostille stamped by the Philippine Foreign Service Post
  • Documents in non-English language must have a corresponding English translation

Do you accept transferees? 

For undergraduate programs, yes, we welcome students from other schools who wish to transfer to Benilde. 

Are there scholarships for transferees?

We do not have scholarship grants for transferees and second-degree students.

Do you accept working students? 

Yes, working students can apply to Benilde. We classify working students as those who are at least 19 years old and are engaged in part-time or full-time work. You can apply to an undergraduate degree program of your choice as long as you can keep up with the course schedule. You can also choose to apply to our Career Development Programs (CDP), which are conducted as night classes and only offered to working students.

International student applicants with tourist visas (9a) or student visas (9f) are not allowed to enroll in CDP in compliance with an immigration law that prohibits student/tourist visa holders to work while studying in the Philippines.

If you are a working student who is a high school graduate that has not yet entered tertiary education, follow the application procedures and requirements for first-year college applicants

If you are already enrolled in a tertiary institution and want to transfer to Benilde, follow the application procedures and requirements for transferees.

Are there scholarships for working students? 

Yes, working students applying to Career Development Programs can apply for a BASAP scholarship.

Do you accept student-athletes?

Yes. Students who wish to apply as athletes need to go through a tryout session scheduled by the sports consultant with the team they aspire to be a part of. To apply as an athlete, you must:

  • Be 17-19 years old for first-year applicants or 18- 21 years old for transferees
  • If you are below 18 years old, you need to submit a waiver form signed by your parent or guardian
  • Take the Philippine Physical Activity Readiness Exam (PPARE), a self-screening tool that will determine the safety or possible risk of an individual based on their health history, current symptoms, and risk factors; the sports consultant will use this as a guide in training the student-athlete
  • Submit a medical certificate

The results will be immediately relayed through text or verbally at the time of the tryouts. Email for further questions and inquiries.

Aside from this, aspiring athletes will also go through the same application process for first-year or transferee applicants to become a Benildean.

Are there scholarships for athletes?

Right now, since sports events are still limited due to the pandemic, we’re not yet offering scholarship grants to athletes.

Do you accept exchange students?

I graduated from high school before the implementation of the K-to-12  program; can I apply to Benilde?

We only accept applicants who graduated in Senior High School under the DepEd K to 12 Curriculum.

If you are a high school graduate under the old basic education curriculum, you need to go through a bridging program first before you can apply to Benilde.
