DepEd Enrollment Guidelines for School Year (SY) 2024–2025 | DepEd Memo No.032 s2024

The Department of Education (DepEd) released guidelines for enrolling students for the school year 2024-2025 through DepEd Memorandum No. 032, s. 2024 – Enrollment Guidelines for School Year (SY) 2024–2025. This is to guide all public schools and community learning centers (CLCs) on how to handle enrollment.

The school year 2024-2025 will start on July 29, 2024, as per DepEd Order No. 003, s. 2024 titled Amendment to DepEd Order No. 022, s. 2023 (Implementing Guidelines on the School Calendar and Activities for the School Year 2023-2024). Therefore, enrollment in all public schools will take place from July 3 to 26, 2024.

Enrollment for School Year (SY) 2024–2025 can be done in three ways:

  • a. In-person Enrollment;
  • b. Remote Enrollment (short messaging services [SMS] or any messaging applications, or email using the school’s official numbers/accounts or email addresses, among others); and
  • c. Dropbox Enrollment (located in schools, barangay halls near the school).

Private schools, state/local universities and colleges (SUCs/LUCs), and Philippine Schools Overseas (PSOs) can follow their own enrollment procedures but must report their enrollment numbers by July 22, 2024, to their respective division offices. PSOs must submit their numbers to the Private Education Office (PEO).

For public schools, a Basic Education Enrollment Form (Enclosure No. 1) is needed for new Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 7, and Grade 11 students, and for those transferring schools.

A Confirmation Slip (Enclosure No. 2) is needed for students continuing in Grades 2-6, Grades 8-10, and Grade 12.

For the Alternative Learning System (ALS), a Modified ALS Enrollment Form (Enclosure No. 3) is required.

All documents and eligibility requirements listed in DepEd Order No. 03, s. 2018 must be submitted by October 31, 2024. If a Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Birth Certificate is not available, a late registration birth certificate from the local civil registrar or a Barangay Certification with basic child information can be submitted.

Public schools must follow the No Collection Policy (DepEd Order No. 19, s. 2008), which means no fees can be collected as a requirement for enrollment.

Schools must enforce the Kindergarten cut-off age as per DepEd Order No. 020, s. 2018.

Only authorized school personnel should handle the transfer of student records. Schools cannot require students or their parents/guardians to do this.

School division superintendents and school heads must run campaigns to inform the public and encourage parents/guardians to enroll their children.
