Apply for a Transfer

Students who had approved transfers or approved rollover transfers for school year 2020-2021 and dis-enrolled from the transfer school to attend one of the following schools will be allowed to go back to the transfer school for 2021-2022:

  • eCADEMY K8 Magnet or eCADEMY Magnet High School;
  • a charter school;
  • a school in a New Mexico school district; or
  • a private school or home school

Students must enroll at the transfer school by December of 2021 or will lose the approved transfer. (Approved by Leadership, Jan. 13, 2021.)

Families who would like for their child to attend an APS school outside of their neighborhood in 2021-2022 may apply online for a transfer beginning January 1.

About Student ID Numbers

To apply for a transfer, you must have an APS ID Number.

  • New students who need to request a transfer must have a Student ID Number. Please read the directions for new students.
  • Currently or previously enrolled students who don't know their Student ID Number may contact their school or check any of their official school documentation (e.g., IEP's, Report Cards, or Progress Reports).

Remember: Use Your Legal Name

When applying for a transfer, remember to use your legal name and not a nickname. Parent and student names must match the information that is in the APS student information system (e.g., birth certificate, medical information, etc.)
