Bringing course descriptions, website information of former schools, and course catalogs are most helpful. Sometimes transcripts list simply "Math" or "Science" or "Social Studies". We will need to determine what specific skills they were learning, for math –Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, etc.; science – Biology, Physics, Chemistry, etc.; Social Studies – World History, World Geography, and Economics. We want to be as fair and thorough as possible when determining credits.
If Registrars or Counselors cannot determine what the class is by title, the student will have to take a placement test to determine the credit transcribed.

Katy ISD follows the Texas Department of State Health Services recommendation for immunization compliance in order for a student to attend school. The law requires that all students be up-to-date as medically feasible in order to attend classes. The immunization vaccine requirements for each grade level are listed on the Katy ISD website. Exemptions to the immunization requirements are allowable on an individual basis for medical contraindications, reasons of conscience-including religious belief, and active duty with the armed forces of the United States.

FINALLY! Registration can be a grueling process, especially during the first few days of New Student Registration. It is easier for everyone when you bring plenty of patience, reading materials, wireless devices (we have public WiFi), snacks and anything else that will make your wait more comfortable. There are several stations at which you must be seen and it takes some time, please be prepared!
