Process to Request a Student Transfer

The deadline for priority transfers and general transfers for lottery has been extended to March 1.

The Austin ISD will begin accepting transfer requests for in district students for the 2021-2022 school year beginning on Tuesday, January 26, 2021. Non AISD employees may request out-of-district transfers for their student(s) beginning Monday, February 1, 2021. 

A transfer request may be submitted via the Online Portal, fax or US postal mail (see below).

In-district applications for priority transfers and non-priority transfers that are to be considered in the lottery process will be accepted through March 1, 2021. All requests received during this time period will be given equal consideration regardless of when they are submitted.

*Please print the form at 100%, actual size or fit to page.

Please provide proof of residence and a picture ID. A birth certificate will need to be provided for students who are new to the district.

Schools Frozen to Transfers in 2021-2022

Each year, the School District determines which schools will be frozen to transfers because they have, or are expected to have, enrollments that exceed their capacities. Also, some schools are frozen to maintain stability in tracking patterns.

  • High Schools: Akins, Bowie
  • Middle Schools: Gorzycki, Lamar, Lively
  • Elementary Schools: Baranoff, Cowan, Kiker

Frozen schools may still accept applications for magnet, application or dual language programs. Families should contact the school directly for more information.
