If you are new to New York City public schools or need help with the enrollment process, you've come to the right place. School started September 8, 2016—see below for information about new student registration.
For information about a transfer request, visit the Transfers page.
New students with a zoned school, including those with a NYC Individualized Education Program (IEP), may register directly at that school. Your zoned school is determined by your home address—find out your zoned school by calling 311 or visiting School Search. If you don’t have a zoned school, visit a Family Welcome Center.
Students with a non-NYC Individualized Education Program (IEP) should visit a Family Welcome Center. Students with more restrictive or specialized needs may also visit a Committee on Special Education (CSE) location.
All new students enrolling in high school must register at a Family Welcome Center, including those with an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
If your child is already enrolled in or assigned to a New York City public school, visit your child’s school for assistance.
Please visit the Non-Resident Enrollment page for information about applying for enrollment as a tuition-paying, non-resident student.
As stated in Chancellor’s Regulation A-101, students in temporary housing may not be refused enrollment in a school because of lack of documentation required for registration, including proof of residency.
Next steps if a family in temporary housing lacks documentation: School must provisionally register the student and work with the DOE Students in Temporary Housing liaison to obtain the missing documentation.
