The Students Admissions Office (SAdO) is responsible for the recruitment, selection and admissions programs of freshmen, transferees, and upperclassmen. It is also in-charge of all matters pertaining to the scholarships of the university.
Specifically the office will:
- Communicate programs of study, admissions expectations, and other facets of University Life to prospective students and other stakeholders;
- Admit new undergraduate students in accordance with the admissions expectations of the University;
- Manage and administer the scholarship program in conjunction to guidelines and policies set by the University;
- Strengthen university relations by providing admission and scholarship information to faculty, administration, Board of Trustees, and providing data to various departments to facilitate recruitment efforts.
Some of the projects are:
Cavite Association of Schools’ Student Admissions Officers (CASSAO). This association was recently created to establish strong academic linkages among colleges and universities in Cavite. One of its aims is to share intellectual, physical, human and other resources to member schools. To achieve its goals, the association holds seminars on marketing strategies and techniques that would increase the enrollment of the member schools.
Cavite Intersecondary Schools Athletic Association (CISAA). This is an annual sports affair that involves secondary schools in the province. Through this, SAdO is able to promote amateur sports, discover and develop promising athletes and help improve athletic programs of the member schools. All secondary schools in Cavite are eligible members of the association.
DLSU-D Open House. This annual activity aims to strengthen DLSU-D's bond with its feeder schools. The university opens its door to prospective students who are given the opportunity to see for themselves what the school can offer. Free seminars on instruction for the high school teachers and leadership trainings for the officers of the student body are also provided during the activity.
DLSU-D Caravan. This activity promotes the university by visiting different secondary schools in CALABARZON, other provinces in the country and abroad. It aims to inform potential students of what DLSU-D has to offer to them and eventually become the school of choice. This was also conceptualized to maintain good university relations to its identified public.
Academic Competitions. The competition is open to all junior and senior high school students who are enrolled in any public or private school within the province of Cavite . Through this, the university provides a venue for high school students to apply their skills in English, Filipino, Social Science, Mathematics, General and Physical Science. Winners of the contest may eventually join the university as scholars. Here, they will further be nurtured so they can maximize their intellectual gifts.
