Family Relocation (B) for Remainder of School Year - Student Transfer Application

A step-by-step tutorial for filling out the online student transfer application

A student transfer request may be considered for a family who relocates from one school boundary to another in Fairfax County within the last 90 calendar days of the school year. In these cases, families are requesting that the student remain enrolled in the current school of attendance for the remainder of the school year.

Before starting the application, make sure you have done the following:

  • Updated residency documentation (e.g. lease, deed, rental agreement) must be provided to the enrolled school and updated in the student information system in order to submit an online student transfer application.
  • The enrolling parent needs to create a Student Information System (SIS) Parent Account.  Please contact the enrolled school for an activation key.
