Non-Resident & Intra-District Application

Students who wish to attend a school other than their neighborhood school—the one assigned to them by geographic boundaries—may apply to transfer to another school by submitting a non-resident/intra-district application online.

Permits are approved as space is available and on a first-come, first-served basis.

In Murray City School District, there are two open enrollment periods: Early Open Enrollment and Late Open Enrollment. The Early Open Enrollment period is the recommended time to enroll for the next school year. Late Open Enrollment is generally, but not always, for the current school year and may be applied for at any time.

Open Enrollment The Open Enrollment period begins December 1st and continues through the third Friday in February each year. Approved transfer requests shall become effective the following school year, beginning on the first day of school. Applications received during the open enrollment period will be notified by the school of their choice if the non-resident permit is approved or denied by March 31.

Late Enrollment The Late Enrollment period can be filed at any time. Approved non-resident permit requests shall become effective the following school year or the current year, as indicated on the request form. Permits will be approved or denied by the school of their choice based on available space.

Once a school administrator approves a permit, the permit will renew automatically every year thereafter as long as the student remains at the same school and their permit is not revoked. Permits must be renewed when a student advances from elementary to middle school or from middle school to high school.

One application must be completed per student and per school requested.

Prior to paying the application fee and submitting an application during the Late Enrollment period, we encourage you to call the school of your choice to see if there is space available in the grade you are requesting.
