Considering the continued threats of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the PSHS encouraged the applicants to download the application form from https://www.pshs.edu.ph/ and email the duly accomplished application form to the campus where they will be applying.
Applicants can also submit the hard copy of the application form to the campus registrar and pay the processing fee to the campus cashier, it said.
