Transfer Requests

Procedures for Initiating a Transfer Request for Incoming Students in Grades K-12

You must first complete the enrollment process via PowerSchool.

Transferred students are not eligible for RISD transportation to or from their requested school.


Even though notification of the decision for most transfers is within sixty (60) days, due to space limitations and/or teacher allocations, some requests may not be eligible for consideration until the beginning of the school year.  Transfers are not considered after the start of a semester, except in extenuating circumstances as determined by the District.
