Enroll in School
To register and enroll in a Salt Lake City public school, prospective students must be at least five years of age on or before September 1 of the school year for which enrollment is sought. The following documentation is required (see below for more details).
- Proof of residence or an approved exception
- A certified copy of the student’s birth certificate or other reliable proof of the student’s identity and age
- A certified and complete immunization record or official immunization exemption
All students may attend their designated neighborhood school without consideration of enrollment capacity. Students who wish to attend a school other than their resident school may submit a Standard Open-Enrollment Application to Student Services during the early enrollment period, December 1 through the third Friday in February, for the upcoming school year. A student may also request a late enrollment transfer by submitting the same form at any other time of year.
Under the McKinney-Vento Act, homeless students are entitled to immediate enrollment and full participation in school even if they are unable to produce records normally required for enrollment.
Online registration is now available. If you have any problems with the online registration process, please call your school's main office.
After you have completed your student’s online registration, you will need to print and bring the signature forms and proof of residence to the school your student will be attending. Many schools also offer assistance in their computer labs during their respective registration dates.
