Welcome to the Pamantasan -- where the brightest scholars from the financially-strapped spectrum of the society are educated and steeped in golden values to become "pantas" or "men of enlightenment and wisdom."
PLM is a pioneer, a leader, and a model institution of higher learning in the Philippines.
PLM is acknowledged as the premier scholars' university of the capital city of the Philippines whose academic excellence the Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) recognizes as "beyond reproach and a class by itself."
Institutional linkage at the global front is a strong pillar in PLM's pursuit of academic excellence. Faculty and student exchanges with Asian and American universities, started a few decades back, have built strong relationships with the international academic community. Today, with the arrival of distinguished foreign guests into the portals of this academe, we are affirming our dedication to tread the world map through sister-university relations.
As we exchange ideas on excellence and on how PLM has achieved dynamic growth to solidify its domestic foundations (as among the top universities in the Philippines) while blazing the internationalization of its presence, we feel the atmosphere of synergy to aid one another in our shared journey to strengthen further the passion for excellence and expanding connectivity to other institutions worldwide.
PLM is now racing its way towards its 50th anniversary or Golden Year. Milestone as that occasion will be, PLM cannot simply rest on the laurels reaped over the last 5 decades. We seek to bring luster to the precious golden jewels of PLM by strengthening its domestic roots and by expanding its realms beyond our current horizons. [More]

With its public service orientation and advocacy, PLM may be the last frontier of knowledge in the country.

What the public says about CEP »
The PLMAT is a 2-hour examination consisting of sub-tests on language proficiency, reading comprehension, mathematics, science, and reasoning, written in English and Filipino. Processing usually starts on the 2nd week of November, and administered in December and January.
An applicant's score is weighted against a standardized PLMAT score. If the score satisfies the suggested cut-off score, the examinee successfully qualifies for enrollment.
The range of cut-off scores approximates the applicants' expected performance in the University. Examinees who successfully achieve a score that is equal to or better than the standardized cut-off score are expected to exude the capacity to hurdle the rigors of an excellent yet exacting university scholarship at PLM.
