Current Year Enrollment 

You can participate in Current Year Enrollment, which is ongoing and is open to all students who are not currently enrolled for 2022-23 already. Families who wish to participate can submit a Current Year Enrollment application online, call the EPC office, or visit the EPC office at 555 Franklin Street, Room 100. Our telephone number is (415) 241-6085. The EPC office and phone line are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. 

An EPC counselor will help you enroll your student at any school that has openings and active transfer requests. Read more about Current Year Enrollment.

Spring Transfer

Beginning September 6, 2022, students who are currently enrolled at a school for the 2022-23 school year can apply to transfer to one school for the Spring semester. Students who attend Charter Schools in San Francisco and Interdistrict students are not eligible to submit a Spring Transfer Request. The application deadline for Spring Transfer is November 10, 2022. Families who receive their Spring Transfer request will be notified the week of December 12.

This is important to understand: Spring Transfer requests are final. If we are able to assign your student to the school you request in the Spring Transfer application, their previous enrollment will be automatically canceled after the end of the Fall semester on December 16. That enrollment change is not reversible
