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."
Life has stored marvelous surprises for each of us. How we relish on its lessons, either delighting on its pleasure or ruing on its ordeals, largely depends on one's values or the lack of it.
We are ushering into an interesting period. Of late, with a sudden incursion into our peaceful domain, our inner resolve has been sorely tested, while our shared conviction was deeply polarized.
None of those elements of subterfuge can blur our vision as we sail through the vast ocean of growth and progress. The wind keeps on blowing behind our sails to usher our ship forward to the glorious destination of academic distinction and service excellence.
As the captain of that ship that is our University, I provide leadership and direction to keep us on the right track. The gale and gust may not always be favorable to us. But the maturity and dedication of fine men and women, like you, who lend their able hands to their captain in steering the ship's thrust, most especially in turbulent times, will always serve as an inspiring atmosphere for me to muster more faith and courage to sail head-on.

PLM comes a long way in translating into reality the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the scholars who hail from the financially-strapped spectrum of the society. It is but fitting that the youth of Manila come to PLM to fulfill the Filipino dream.
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.
