Frequently Asked Questions

What is New MSU SASE?

The New Mindanao State University (MSU) System Admission and Scholarship Examination (SASE) is an exam conducted by all units of the MSU System in their respective responsibility centers. Students who make it to the cut-off score as determined by the highest and the median scores will have a chance of being admitted in the MSU System Unit of their choice. Scholarships are also available to those who qualify the scholarship requirements of the MSU System and of the various scholarship sponsoring organizations.

Who are qualified to take the New MSU SASE?

Only students who are enrolled in Grade 12 of the K-12 program are qualified to take the exam.

Do students who wish to transfer to MSU-IIT have a chance of being accepted?

With the New Curriculum to be implemented in 2018, there is a very slim chance for transferees to be accepted. Course offerings for SY 2018-2019 will only be for the 1st year students (NEW CURRICULUM) and for the 4th year students (OLD CURRICULUM).

Do MSU-IIT students who have filed for Leave of Absence and who would seek for readmission be accommodated by their respective departments?

For those in the 4th year level, you may visit your respective departments and seek for Acceptance Note from your Class Advisers,  duly noted by your department chairperson.
