Resident on Military Installation - Student Transfer Application

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

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

All Applications

  • The enrolling parent needs to create a Student Information System (SIS) Parent Account.  Please contact the enrolled school for an activation key. 
  • Students new to FCPS must be enrolled at a base school before starting the student transfer application process. 

Resident on Military Installation Applications

  • Parents must provide the enrolled school a current resident occupancy agreement from The Villages at Belvoir.  If the lease date is not current a letter from the community management office is also required to document military housing for student transfer consideration. 
  • After the enrolled school has confirmed receipt of the required documentation in the Student Information System, the parent may submit an online student transfer application the following business day.

    • 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.
