If you would like to apply to attend a New York City public school as a tuition-paying non-resident, please complete the Non-Resident Application by August 31, 2014. You will receive a response in September. If you live outside of New York City and would like to send your child to a New York City school, you must submit a Non-Resident Application. The New York City Department of Education must accommodate all resident students before enrolling non-residents. If you are planning to move to New York City, you do not need to apply for non-resident enrollment. You can register your child for school after you establish residency. For information about registration for new students, visit our New Students page.*** For more information about non-resident enrollment, please read the Chancellor's Regulation on Non-Resident Enrollment. Tuition Rates Non-resident students must pay tuition based on the rates set each year by the State Education Department. The provisional rates are below.
Non-resident students are not eligible to attend and may not apply to attend specialized schools, screened/selective schools or programs, gifted and talented programs, or pre-kindergarten programs. Specialized High School Admissions Test A student cannot take the Specialized High School Admissions Test until he or she becomes a New York City resident. The test is administered just before school begins for ninth and tenth graders who are new to the city; new residents can take the test at that time.
