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.)
