Heads of Vocational Schools
- In view of the emergency situation caused by the recent earthquake where schools, colleges and universities, both public and private, are seriously or totally damaged and can no longer operate during the first semester in the current school year, temporary admission of student transferees to schools in other places may be permitted subject to the following conditions:
- In the elementary and secondary levels, no student should be refused admission subject to the capacity of schools in terms of teacher and facilities to accommodate student transferees. However, they are considered temporarily enrolled until such time that the school records are submitted within the current school year.
- In the tertiary level, student transferees may be admitted temporarily with certification from the administrators of the schools they have come from pending submission of credentials. In quota courses, schools may admit student transferees subject to available slots from their quota.
- Tuition and other school fees, however, may be refunded by the school of origin to student transferees according to the school’s policy and standing DECS regulations on such matter. The school to where the student has transferred shall collect tuition and other school fees corresponding only to the period of studies remaining for the first semester or the school year in 1990-1991.
