    • Select “Renew Request” instead of “Start a transfer request” if you are requesting a renewal of a student transfer and your student continues to meet the same student transfer criteria as indicated in the original student transfer application.
    • If your child appears under the viewing parent (burgundy) tab then you may not proceed with application submission. The enrolling parent needs to submit the application on behalf of the family.
