| In 2016, UEF enrolls students based on either their National High School Examination results or their grade 12 GPA.
- Applicants with National High School Examination result must meet requirements of MOET.
- Applicants with Grade 12 GPA must graduate from high school; and the grade 12 combined GPA of the three subjects designated for consideration being equal to or above 18 at the HE level. For the associate level, applicants only need to be a high school graduate. UEF begin receiving applications with high school transcripts from May 2, 2016.
Applicants in both manners are eligible for 100%, 50% and 25% scholarships if their GPAs total 27, 24 and 21 respectively.
