Withdrawal Procedure for Students Leaving ISM
 
For those students who will be withdrawing from Internaonal School Manila this year, the following procedure applies:
 
Parents are obliged to inform the School ocially through a WITHDRAWAL NOTIFICATION FORM, before the second Friday of May, if their children will not be returning to ISM.
 
Failure to do so will lead to a deducon of US$1,000 from the Facilies Upgrade Deposit (FUD), in compensaon for having held aspace for the child and thus prevenng the School from oering that space to another child prior to the summer holiday break.
 
The Withdrawal Nocaon Form can be obtained from the Admissions Oce or directly from the ISM websitewww.ismanila.orgunder Admissions > Re
-
Enrollment & Withdrawal > Withdrawal

The School Oce, upon receipt of the Withdrawal Nocaon Form, will iniate the student clearance procedure whichrequires a Middle or High School student to have the
Student Clearance Slip

For Elementary students, the Elementary Oce will handle the withdrawal clearance.
 
Note that school transcripts and records will be available from the parcular school oce approximately een workingdays aer the child’s last day of aendance at ISM.
 
Please coordinate directly with the parcular School Oce if yourequire other arrangements.
 
STEP 2:
 
If required, and when completed, the
Student Clearance Slip
must be taken to the Cashier’s Oce.
 
Only aer the Cashierhas received and signed the completed clearance form will the child’s transcript or school records be released from the Elementary,Middle or High School Oce.
 
Please note that one copy of the transcript is provided free of charge, addional copies cost P100each, payable at the Cashier’s Oce before release.
 
Please coordinate directly with the parcular School Oce if you requiremore than one copy of school records.
 
STEP 3:
 
In order to receive your Facilies Upgrade Deposit or FUD (formerly the Special Project Deposit) refund, the following mustbe submied to the
Cashier’s Oce:
 1) Signed Student Clearance Slip
 
2) Signed Facilies Upgrade Deposit Cercate
 
Please note that the FUD refund will not be released before your child’s last day of school and may take up to thirty (
30) days
. Onlythe person whose name appears on the FUD Cercate may claim the refund at the Cashier’s Oce.
 
Please call the Cashier at 840
