    Late applications:

    Parents must contact the choice district to inquire about whether it accepts late applications.

    Some districts may accept late applications after the December 1, 2023, deadline until October 14 of the enrollment year, however, late applicants will be considered for enrollment only after those who applied before the deadline.

    If any accepted choice students decide to drop their acceptance before the start of the school year, the district may replace them with students on the waitlist, including students who applied after the deadline--provided late applicants are considered after those who applied before the deadline.

    Exception to Late Application Policy:

    When extenuating circumstances occur, the Commissioner may grant a waiver of the student application deadline, allowing a student to submit an application and be accepted to a choice program. Waivers will only be granted by a showing of "good cause" and when a student's educational conditions are such that an immediate transfer is needed. Waivers will not be granted for convenience reasons such as missing the application deadline. Typically, student enrollment must occur immediately upon approval of the waiver, however each waiver will be considered based on the specific circumstances of the student. Parents can request a waiver form by emailing the Choice program office.
