Open Enrollment/Intradistrict Transfer Guidelines

Additional Open Enrollment Window:

July 27 - 31, 2020 


Due to the unanticipated challenges that families are currently facing due to COVID-19, the Huntington Beach Union High School District will be offering an additional intradistrict/open enrollment transfer window.  During the July 27-31 window, you will be able to initiate your open enrollment request for the 2020-2021 school year.



  • Parents must provide transportation.
  • Space must be available at the school of desired attendance.
  • A student's home school is established based on their address of residence, not the previous school of enrollment.
  • Once a request is submitted, parents and students agree to commit to the school of desired attendance for one year.
  • There is no need to reapply if you already submitted an Open Enrollment application, and you do not wish to change schools. A new application is only required if you wish to change schools.
  • Special Education student transfer requests need approval from the Executive Director of Special Education.
  • All CIF rules apply. Please contact the Athletic Director of the school you wish to attend with any questions regarding transfers and eligibility.
