Thinking of Shifting or Transferring to UP AIT? Here’s what you need to know.

For students from other UP units and other universities, applicants must have completed the following minimum requirements:

30 units          –           for UP Students (S2, T1)

33 units          –           for non-UP Students (T2)

Applicants cannot make up for any inadequacy in the number of units by enrolling during the Summer after the application period. 

Tourism courses taken prior to application cannot be credited to substitute the courses in the curriculum of UP AIT

The General Weighted Average (GWA) requirements for applicants should be at least:

2.00     –           for UP Students (S2, T1) Download the application documents here.

1.75     –           for non-UP Students (T2) Read this link to access the guide, application form and submission link for T2 Applicants

Applicants must also pass the interview by the AIT Admissions Committee


1. The first screening will be the number of units earned and the GWA.  All applicants must pass the first screening before proceeding to the second level.

For T2 applicants, the screening will be done by the Office of the University Registrar. Once they have validated your credentials, only then can UP-AIT proceed to the second level of screening.

2. The second screening will be the interview. Applicants who pass the first screening will be given a schedule for their interview set by the Admissions Committee.

In light of the restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, interviews will be conducted online. Please ensure that you have a valid and working e-mail account and access to stable internet connection.

3. The applicants will be ranked according to:

60%  of the applicant’s GWA

40%  of the interview grade


UP Students (S2, T1) can email their application to aitois.upd@up.edu.ph from July 5-16, 2021
FOR T2 Applicants:

  1. Hello!
    I noticed on your application form that I need to submit a copy of 2×2 picture with a “printed name on the back”, even if the submission of forms is via email. Can you please clarify the situation? Thank you!


  2. Hello! I am intending for a transfer to the AIT from another university. However, my transcript of records is still in process and may not make it to the deadline? Would it be okay to submit it later? Thank you!


      1. Hi, Good Evening. Im planning to transfer next year to the AIT from another university. I would like to ask, if i pass do i still need to go back to first year or i will be irregular? Thank you


      2. Hello Cristian. Transfer students from other universities are considered freshmen upon their admission to UP. However, their actual class standing will be determined on the units they have previously earned, and units that will be credited to their program of choice.


  3. Hi! Good Evening. I would like to ask, im planning to transfer next year in UP Diliman T2 applicant, can i apply to 2 to 3 degree programs ? Thank you


  4. Hello, Good Evening! I’m a student from UPOU and I’m planning to transfer to BS Tourism during the second semester. The only problem is that because of the different calendars of OU and Diliman, I would still be at my first term while it is already the application period for the course. With this, I would just like to ask if I need to take an LOA for me to be able to successfully apply? Thank you in advance 🙂


    1. Hello Sophie, AIT does not require you to be on leave upon application. However, you must meet the minimum required unit and GWA at the time of application. And if ever your application will be successful, you should be able to get your exit credentials from your UPOU. The next round of applications will be announced next year, most probably around June/July 2022. Thank you.
