Open Transfer District Openings and Guidelines

April 8, 2022

With the enactment of Senate Bill 783 (2021), the Legislature made comprehensive reforms to Oklahoma’s school transfer laws, namely revising the requirements for accepting and denying student transfers and requiring school districts to set and list enrollment capacities on their websites. These changes, among others, went into effect on January 1, 2022, and make students eligible to request a transfer to any district in the state, regardless of where they live.

EKCO has compiled a list of a select number of districts across the state with links to their district's open transfer page, the # of openings that they have, how to apply, if they have a wait list available, and their 2022-2023 application acceptance date. Processing for the 2022-2023 school year will begin on July 1, 2022. If you’re on a waitlist for the current school year (2021-2022), you will need to fill out a NEW application for the 2022-2023 school year. It is recommended to always check the website of the school district to confirm details. Most school districts store this information on the enrollment or open transfer section of their websites. 

Every Kid Counts Oklahoma (EKCO) is also always happy to help! You can reach out to use via text at (833) 270-7766 or via email at parents@everykidcountsok.org. 

You can find the statewide open transfer form here.

As of 4/8/22, the online state portal was not working so the printable form is the only option. The online portal is supposed to be up & running by 7/1/22 at this site.
