District Student Transfer Open Enrollment 2018-2019                              

Transfer Open Enrollment Periods :  The District will have two student transfer open enrollment periods for both employees and non-employees at the same time.  The  2018-2019 new and renewal transfer requests for Katy ISD students will open for the first enrollment period MONDAY at 8:00AM, April 16, 2018 and WILL CLOSE FRIDAY, June 1, 2018.  The transfer second enrollment period will open Monday,  at 8:00AM, July 16, 2018 and WILL CLOSE WEDNESDAY, August 15, 2018.

Transfers will only be processed once the application, accompanying documents (if applicable), and appropriate fee has been received. A NON-REFUNDABLE APPLICATION FEE of $35.00 ($10.00 for District employees) is required for processing each application. Fee waivers may be granted by the building principal on an individual hardship basis based on financial need.  Fees are not validated for payment in MyPaymentPlus until the funds have cleared both the employee and the District banks.  To expedite the transfer process, make payments on-line 24 hours after submission of the transfer application by accessing MyPaymentsPlus and submitting the fee on the "District student transfer fee" line item.  Fees paid via CREDIT CARD will be processed and marked as "Paid" on school records within two days.  Due to banking regulations-which allow a window of time for returned items - E-CHECK payments take longer than credit card transactions.  Please allow at least 7-14 days for E-CHECK payments to show as "Paid" at your student's campus.  Payments may also be made to the campus registrar by cash or money order only. (Checks are not accepted).  A valid student Katy ISD ID number is required.  MyPaymentsPlus may not be used for this category of students: new, non-move request (i.e. Request for a PK, or KG  student that is not yet enrolled).  These students (who do not have a Katy ISD issued student ID number) will need to make a payment by money order or cash to the campus the student is transferring to for the upcoming year.  After transfer application is submitted, an automated payment reminder will be generated with instructions for payment.

District Employees

​ONLY full-time (in-District and out-of-District) employees are eligible for a student transfer.   Part-time and substitute employees are not eligible.  A full-time District employee may request a transfer for their student to attend the school closest to or the actual worksite of the employee.  Current employees that live outside of the District and are choosing to bring their children to a Katy ISD school will be required to upload each child's attendance and discipline records for two school years (current and previous) when submitting your student's transfer.​​
