The priority window for submitting
2020-2021 student transfer applications is
February 3 to April 3, 2020
Transfer applications submitted are approved pending available space at the desired school. Should a school receive more transfer requests than there are spaces available, approval will be determined through a random, unbiased selection process to establish the order in which transfers will be approved and to initiate a waiting list. Transfer requests received before the deadline will have priority over transfer requests received after the deadline. However, the order in which transfers are received prior to the deadline has no effect on the approval decision.
