you by that date, then payment has to be made on or before June 30. Otherwise, it can
be any time before enrollment for AY2020-2021, as you cannot be enrolled unless you are
cleared of your accountabilities.


Official Receipt

Q: I have already sent the proof payment to PSBA-Manila, will the School issue an official
receipt to me?
A: Yes, an Official Receipt will be issued once the payment has been validated against
the School’s bank statements. A scanned copy of the OR will be sent through email.


Rebate/Refund

Q: Will there be a tuition fee refund charged for second semester of AY2019-2020?
A: There will be no tuition fee refund. Tuition fees go to the salaries and benefits of
employees and Faculty members. Even during community quarantine, the academic staff
and support staff continue to work to ensure the delivery of School services. However, in
consideration of the adverse economic impact brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic,
the School implements the following:

  • 20% of the Miscellaneous Fees amounting to Php1,588.00 shall be applied as
    rebate or refund to Undergraduate Program students.
    – Rebate to be applied to existing financial obligations or to School Fees for
    the first semester of AY 2020-2021.
    – Refund for graduating students (but if they still have financial obligations
    with the School, the amount will be offset against their balance).
  • As has been previously communicated, the School accepts partial payment of
    students’ financial obligations through submission of Promissory Note (PN). The
    PN will be submitted through email (psbamanilahr@gmail.com), addressed to the
    Office of the President. The PN must be duly signed by your parent or guardian.
    Proof of identification (scanned copy of student ID and government ID of the
    parent/guardian) must be attached to the PN.

Academic Year 2020-2021
