Question: I just want to ask if the given Applicant Number, can it be used with other positions?
Yes. Each applicant is given only one (1) UAN valid upon application and for 1 school year if UAN starts with T, and valid for 1 year if UAN starts with N.
Question: Please send me the e-pds so i can print it together with my application number. / Bakit po until now wala pa rin po ung PDS na galing sa website nyo po?
We do not send to you your ePDS directly. The email that gave you your UAN also provided the link to download your ePDS (PDF version only).
Question: May ibang paraan po ba para makakuha kami ng application number? (Is there other means of acquiring the application number?)
No. There is no other way of acquiring the UAN except through the online application system because it is auto-generated upon submission.
Question: Saan ko po makikita yung application number ko? (Where can I find my application number?)
Your Unique Applicant Number (UAN) is seen in the following:
- Application Dashboard (written in GREEN TEXT)
- UAN email after you have submitted your application online.
- Upper right hand corner of the generated Personal Data Sheet. (The link is also
provided in the UAN email)
Question: Dun po sa sign Up application po mali po ung nilagay ko na TIN #. ok lng po ba un, at palitan ko na lang sa may PDS ko po?
(In the Sign-up application I entered a wrong TIN, is it ok to correct it in my PDS?)
You can input your correct TIN in the PDS.
Question: I can’t access my account. Your site always say I’m not registered yet but once I try to register again it says my email and tin already exist.
This happens when you have already registered your data but may have skipped or forgotten to check the verification email sent and proceeded to the login page. It is an important step to confirm that the email address you registered exist by clicking the word ‘here’. After which, you are directed again to the site to login. Please take note that the verification link is only valid for one click.
Question: How to correct the confirmation key? How to make it valid?
The link ‘here’ in the confirmation email sent to you after you successfully registered your data is only valid for 1 click. Clicking it again will cause this message. Send your complete name and email address to [email protected] with the subject REQUEST RESETTING OF PASSWORD.
Question: My work experience did not appear in my e-PDS, what should i do?? I tried to update it but still my work experience is empty. Pls. give me advice for this matter.
When encoding your work experience or any other data in your PDS, please refrain from typing in apostrophe (‘), quotes (‘ ‘), double quotes (“ “) and double dash (–).
Question: Hanggang kailan po ang deadline ng pagregister online? (When’s the deadline for the online registration?)
None. There is no deadline for the online registration. However, you need to abide by the deadline set by the Division Offices for the submission of your documents.
Question: Pwede po ba ako makarequest na maitransfer sa new account ko na _______ ang application number ko. Hindi ko n po ksi maopen yung nailagay kong email ad ko sa application.
This is a wrong assumption that the UAN is transferable and that a UAN can be issued to an email address that was never verified.

Please register again, this time using a valid, existing and correct email address and TIN. Regardless if the TIN had been previously used in the registration, as long as it is not yet linked to a verified user the TIN remains available.
UAN is one of the requirements sa mga applicants. However, it should not be a hindrance/reason para hindi tanggapin ang applicaion ng isang applicant. It can be submitted to the Division Office as soon as they received it. The deadline that you set for your applicants should not be the deadline for submission of the UAN. You just have to make sure (maybe asking them for proof) that they indeed registered or already submitted online. Thank you. – Asec Mateo’s Office
Please be informed that you should be able to proceed with your application [submit documents, take the English Proficiency Test, undergo demonstration teaching and be interviewed] while your Unique Applicant Number (UAN) is still being processed. However, you are expected to submit your UAN to the Division Office as soon as you receive it via email or in your dashboard.
- Carefully fill out each field. Do not write “-NA-” just leave the fields (to which you don’t have answer to) blank.
- Use an active email address (preferably which is after your name) so that you can easily monitor and see the confirmation number they will send you.
- IF you haven’t received any confirmation/verification yet, try to have a look at the SPAM folder as some free email account services automatically filters some emails and considers it as a SPAM.

- If you have inputted the wrong data on PDS and could not change it, you can have it corrected by sending an email to [email protected] The subject of the email must be DATA CORRECTION. Make sure to give your complete name.

- You registered an incorrect email address (eg. [a] your email is [email protected], you registered [email protected]; [b] your email is [email protected], you registered [email protected] (take not of the double ‘r’);

I always experience a 404 error on my browser. What causes this and how should I get rid of it?
Some issues that you encounter with your DepEd Online Application can be solved by changing your browser settings, refreshing the page, or clearing the browser cache and cookies.
A force refresh or reload will cause the browser to re-check with the web server to make sure it has the latest copy of the web page you are viewing. Here are keyboard shortcuts for force refreshing your browser:
- Windows: Ctrl + F5
- Mac/Apple: Apple + R or Cmd + R
- Linux: F5
Clearing Your Browser Cache
If you are experiencing problems displaying DepEd Online Application Website, clearing the browser cache is a good first step to try to resolve the issue.
Each time you access a web page, your web browser stores a temporary copy of the files needed to display the web page to you. Those temporary files are called the browser cache. If your cache is not updating properly or if it’s stuck, you could be viewing an older version of some of the supporting files that run DepEd Online Application Website. If you clear the cache, this will force your browser to fetch all of the files for a website again, so you will see the most recent version of the page.
Instructions for clearing your browser cache will be different for each browser and version.
Note: It is also possible for your Internet Service Provider to create a cache at the network level. This means that instead of viewing the WordPress.com web servers for some files, the ISP has created a cache to store files on their network to try to reduce bandwidth costs and also to make loading some web pages faster.
If you are still having trouble, here are a few more things you can try:
- Upgrade your browser and Flash Player to the latest version available.
- Try an alternate browser. If it works, then the issue is with the browser settings. Look for troubleshooting tips on your browser’s support documentation.
- Try an alternate computer in the same location. If another computer works, then the issue is computer settings on the first one.
- Try an alternate location that has a different Internet Service Provider. If it works, the issue is with your local network.
