For the coming school year, students interested in enrolling in a Salt Lake City school who live outside the district or school boundaries may apply for an out-of-resident transfer during the Early Enrollment (Open Window) period from December 1, 2017, until 4 p.m. on February 16, 2018. Applications are taken in the Student Services Department of the Salt Lake City School District Administration Building, 440 East 100 South, Salt Lake City, Utah. Applications will not be accepted after 4 p.m. on February 16, 2018.

Students may apply for enrollment in schools designated as “Open” to transfer. Selected schools and programs may be at capacity for the coming school year and not available as a choice for out-of-resident students. A list of available schools and programs or other information pertaining to the open enrollment policy may be obtained after November 30, 2017, from the Student Services Department at the above address or by calling 801.578.8206 or 801.578.8475.

Students who wish to attend a school outside their neighborhood boundaries are currently enrolled in 6th grade must apply for transfer to the middle school of their choice and 8th grade students must make application for their high school of choice during the Open Window.

A $5.00 processing fee will be charged at the time of application and may be waived for qualified applicants.

Parents and students will be notified in writing by March 31, 2018, of acceptance or rejection of the request for Open Window transfer to that school.

A currently enrolled non-resident student shall be permitted to remain enrolled, subject to the same rules and standards as resident students, without renewed applications in subsequent years UNLESS any of the following occurs:

  • The student graduates or is no longer a Utah resident;
  • The student is suspended or expelled from school; or
  • The district determines that school enrollment will exceed the open enrollment threshold.

If the transfer of a currently enrolled student is being rejected for the coming year, parents will be notified in writing by March 15, 2018.
