Here are some tips to help you cope with the challenges of the enrollment this coming back-to-school season.

It’s back-to-school season again for most students and you know what that means (especially if you are a parent) – stressful days ahead because of the daily preparations for your child’s school needs. But before we get to that, let’s not overwhelm ourselves with the looming tasks, and tick one hurdle from our back-to-school checklist: enrollment. Yup, enrollment can be nerve-wracking, but with a few systematic approaches, you can easily nail your child’s school enrollment like a pro.

Tips For A Hassle-Free Enrollment This Coming School Year

    Probably the first thing you should ask yourself is this – will you enroll your child in the same school or will you transfer them to another? Of course, the requirements will depend on your answer.

    Let’s look at the things that you might need for your child’s school enrollment based on the two scenarios above.

    Enrolling in the same school

    If you are enrolling your child in the same school, you don’t really have to bring with you a lot of requirements except for your child’s report card during the previous year. So be sure to bring it with you at the start of the enrollment period.

    Of course, you also have to bring an initial payment for your child’s tuition. To avoid hassles during enrollment, be sure to bring enough cash with you, or better yet, ask the school beforehand how much you have to pay for your child’s tuition.

    I guess one of the best tips during enrollment is never to wait until the last day. You know, people love to cram and wait until the last day so imagine the long queues that you have to brave if you wait until the last day of school enrollment. If you can accomplish it on the first day, then that’s good.

    Enrolling in a different school (or school transfer)

    The requirements for student transferees are more numerous as compared to continuing students although it can vary from school to school. Here are some of the requirements that you might have to prepare if you are transferring to another school:

    • Filled-out enrollment form
    • Transfer of credentials
    • Transcript of records
    • Certification of good moral character from the student’s previous school (some schools would require a dry seal)
    • NSO birth certificate which you can conveniently order from and have it delivered to your doorstep.
    • Medical clearance
    • ID photos
    • Admission fee

    These are some of the basic requirements for those transferring to another school.

    Is it your first time to enroll your child?

    Lastly, let’s not forget the first-time enrollees such as those in nursery school or kindergarten. Enrollment is not as chaotic as that in big schools because the number of students is few and the requirements are about a handful. Just the same, it’s always good to be prepared if it’s your first time to enroll your child.

    Anyway, the requirements are usually just the following:

    • Enrollment form for the school record
    • NSO birth certificate
    • Admission fee
    • Miscellaneous fees, etc.

    There you go, some of the basic pointers that you should keep in mind during school enrollment. If you have more tips to add, please feel free to do so in the comment section below.
