Transfers

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

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

Applying For A Transfer

  • Students who currently have an approved transfer DO NOT need to reapply unless they want to change schools.
  • 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.

Apply Online

Families who would like their child to attend an APS school outside their assigned attendance area in 2018-19 may apply online for a transfer beginning January 1st.

Apply In Person

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.

About Student ID Numbers

Parents will need to know each student’s ID number if they are currently an APS student or have ever attended an APS school.

If your student does not have an APS ID number complete the Request for APS Transfer ID number online or contact the Transfer Office for information on how to be issued an ID number at (505) 855-9050. ID numbers will NOT be issued over the phone. Upon the successful submission of the online Transfer ID Request Form, the student should receive a confirmation number.

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

How transfers are granted

Transfers are not on a first-come, first-served basis; requests will be processed as having been received on the same day in January.

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. Learn more about transfers.
