Student Transfers

Student Transfers

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, go into effect January 1, 2022, and make students eligible to request a transfer to any district in the state, regardless of where they live.

The following resources will help parents and schools navigate these changes.

Open transfer applications for the 24-25 school year will begin June 1, 2024.
