Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do If I cannot print my QVA Certificate?

If for whatever reason you encounter an error in downloading and printing your QVA Certificate, try refreshing your internet browser. Also, check if your computer has a PDF reader. If your parent is accessing it from the office or any workplace, it is possible that there is a restriction coming from the firewall settings; if this is the case, you may check it at home or go to an internet shop to download and print. You may also email a request letter to [email protected] to request a copy of the QVA Certificate.

Do 10 Grade completers from public need to print voucher certificate?

No. You just need to present your Grade 10 Report Card to the school where you want to enroll, together with the other documents that the school may require from you. Your Grade 10 Report Card should bear your Learner Reference Number.

Do 10 Grade completers from Private Schools who are ESC Grantees need to print voucher certificate?

No. ESC participating schools are required to issue an ESC Certificate to its grantees. This certificate is what you will present to the school where you want to enroll.

Do 10 Grade completers from Public Schools by DepEd need to print voucher certificate?

No. You just need to present your Grade 10 Report Card to the school where you want to enroll, together with the other documents that the school may require from you. Your Grade 10 Report Card should bear your Learner Reference Number.

What if there is typographical error in the QVA certificate?

Email a request letter to [email protected] to request the correction of typographical error.

What is the next step after I print the QVA Certificate?

You may now proceed with the enrollment in your school of choice. Present the QVA Certificate to the Admissions/Registrar’s Office together with the other admission documents that the school requires from you.

Is it possible to enroll in a track and strand that is different from what I declared in the voucher application?

Yes. The student is not limited by what he or she declared in the application. Be guided, however, by the terms and conditions for all voucher beneficiaries. That information is in DepEd Order No. 60, s. 2017. Check ovap.deped.gov.ph for more information.

How much is the voucher worth?

That information is in DepEd Order No. 60, s. 2017. Check ovap.deped.gov.ph for information.

Will the money be given to student?

No. DepEd will give the voucher value directly to the school where the student enrolled for Grades 11 and 12.

Do we need to attend the orientation program for voucher beneficiaries, as per DepEd Order No. 46, s. 2015?

There will no longer be an orientation to be conducted for all voucher program beneficiaries but the schools are expected to orient the students on the voucher program terms and conditions, as laid out in DepEd Order No. 60, s. 2017.

Can the applicant edit and save the information they inputted online?

Yes, the applicant can edit and save their answers while filling up the form. If their Current Application Status indicates “Submitted” they can still edit their Online Application Form.
