On January 18, 2019, I received a text message from my daughter’s school that the subsidy from Deped Voucher Program (1st semester S.Y. 2018-2019) has been credited to my daughter’s account. I asked what the process is in order to refund. I was told that I should go to the cashier to get a refund form.
Last week, I went to my daughter’s school and asked for a refund form. I was so surprised to find out that I will be getting a refund of PhP9,000 for the first semester. I thought it was only PhP7,000 because my daughter came from a private school in the province.
There are documents that I need to submit in order to claim the refund. It’s good that I was able to keep the official receipts for my daughter’s reservation and enrollment for the first semester. As for the assessment/registration form, I need to get a certified true copy from the Registrar’s office.
I am glad that DepEd has released the subsidy early this year. Admittedly, education is expensive with the addition of two years in High School.
Thanks to the Senior High School Voucher program. This is money I can save and add to my daughter’s college fund.
