Transfer Application Now Available
Apply online or at APS administrative offices. New this year: Students need ID numbers to apply.
Families who would like their child to attend an APS school outside their assigned attendance area in 2017-18 may now apply online for a transfer..
Applications also may be completed in person in the Student Service Center on the first floor of the Albuquerque Public Schools administration building, 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE.
New this year: Parents will need to know the APS ID number for their child if they are currently an APS student or have ever attended an APS school. If a student doesn't have an APS ID number, contact the Student Service Center at 855-9050 or 855-9040.
The first window for transfer applications runs through Jan. 31. Upon the successful submission of their online transfer request, they should receive a confirmation number.
Transfers are granted on a space and program available basis using a random selection process (lottery) and priority system which is in compliance with district, state and federal requirements.
Transfers are not on a first-come, first-served basis; requests will be processed as having been received on the same day during each transfer window.
Students who currently have an approved transfer don't need to reapply unless they want to change schools. However, students who are transitioning from elementary to middle school or middle school to high school DO need to apply for a transfer if they want to attend a school outside their assigned area.
For more information, call the APS Student Service Center at 855-9050 or 855-9040.
