- Students must bring (together with the enrolment requirements) the original copy of their QVR (Qualified Voucher Recipient) Certificate which is provided by DepEd (Department of Education) on the enrolment day.

2. What will happen to the voucher amount given by DepEd if the student is granted an ETY SHS Scholarship by the University?

- A student who is considered a qualified voucher recipient shall not be given any assistance by DepEd once granted full scholarship by the University. Should the student, in any circumstance, be revoked of his or her scholarship, the DepEd voucher assistance will take effect instead.

3. Can students change their preferred schedule after one semester?

- Students can no longer change their schedule for the reason that during enrolment their class schedule for the whole year (first and second semesters) will already be given.

4. What will happen to the fees paid should the student wish to discontinue his/her studies at Mapúa for Senior High School?

- Should the student wish to discontinue his/her study at Mapúa in the middle of the school year, payments already made will not be refunded. Moreover, the student must pay the remaining balance for the same year. Otherwise, school records will not be released.

5. Will Mapúa accept Senior High School transferees?

- Yes. Students transferring should present the following during application: (1) original report card (2) original certificate of good moral character (3) letter of intent addressed to the Senior High School Principal.

6. Can a student shift to another strand after one semester?

- Yes. Students can shift to another strand after one semester. Upon shifting, students must accomplish all specialized courses necessary for the chosen strand. The University does not guarantee that the student will finish within the 2-year Senior High School period, this is for the reason that the availability and number of courses to be enrolled per semester (including summer) will be considered.

7. Where can we buy books necessary for Senior High School?

- Books will be available for purchase/claiming at the Mapúa Bookstore at the start of classes.

8. Is there a school uniform requirement?

- Like college students, Senior High School students do not have any uniform requirement except for their P.E. uniforms which may be purchased at the Mapúa Bookstore once the enrolment period begins.
- Since there is no school uniform requirement, students are expected to dress properly and appropriately. Mapúa is lenient on how the students dress themselves but rest assured dress codes will be implemented.
