The My School DC mid-year application is the application for students in PK3 – Grade 12 who move into the District or who seek to transfer from their current school to another DC public school (DCPS or charter) midyear. The application is used to apply to all participating schools. No application is needed for K-12 students who wish to transfer into their DCPS in-boundary school. Locate your DCPS in-boundary school by entering your address into the School Finder.
For the 2020-21 school year, the mid-year application period extends from October 6, 2020 through March 19, 2021. Please note that offers from a waitlist are never guaranteed and are infrequent after October 6. To learn more about how waitlists work, click HERE.
Important: The mid-year application is ONLY for the 2020-21 school year already underway; not for the upcoming school year. Any student new to DC or seeking a transfer for the current school year must complete a mid-year application by calling the My School DC Hotline at (202) 888-6336 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Families seeking to apply for school year 2021-22 can do so beginning December 14, 2020.
