2016 - 2017 Student Transfers

Information about how to submit a transfer request in order to switch schools.

Families who would like their child to attend an APS school outside their assigned attendance area in 2016-17 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 APS administration building, 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE.

Parents will need to know each student’s ID number if they are currently an APS student or have ever attended an APS school. Upon the successful submission of their online application, they should receive a confirmation number.

For more information, call the APS Student Service Center at 855-9050 or 855-9040.

The first window for transfer applications runs through Jan. 31.

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.

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.

How Transfers Work

Transfers are granted based on the space available in a school or program. We use a random selection process and priority system that is in compliance with state and federal regulations.
