There are several types of Student Transfers available for your consideration. Please take the time to review each section to determine which request(s) meet your needs. Criteria for each transfer request are different and may have different closing dates.


You will need to know your student's Clayton County Public School's identification number before applying. This will require you to enroll your student in the school he/she is zoned to attend unless he/she is already enrolled. After that, you may only apply one time for each student, so please make sure you have chosen all appropriate transfer types and have completed all fields required before submitting your request. Once submitted, you will no longer have access to change or add any information.


You will receive a confirmation number for reference purposes only. This number does not in any way indicate a decision of approval or denial. For your convenience, we have provided a list of locations, dates and times the school system will make computers and scanners available to the community to assist with this application process.


**If you received a student transfer letter that allows your child to stay at the school until the highest grade at the school, then do not apply again. Your application will not be processed.**


NOTE: Transportation is not provided for the following transfers: Hardship, Employee, House Bill 251 (HB 251) and Special Needs Scholarship (SB 10).


Please ensure that the schools are ranked in the box on the Student Transfer application. Student Services will receive the schools listed as you have ranked them. However, the confirmation page and your email will list the schools you chose in alphabetical order.
