Welcome to Syracuse City School District's Online Application System!



If you are submitting a transfer or School Choice application for a student who is currently enrolled in the District, you must spell the student’s name exactly as it appears on their last report card or other correspondence you received from the District. Failure to do so may prohibit you from moving forward, or cause a delay in processing the request.

Please select a link below for more information about our School Choice or transfer programs:

Pre-K, Elementary, and Middle School Choice
K-8 and High School Transfers
High School Choice

Important Information for new or returning students:

If your child is new to the District or returning after being withdrawn, please be sure to register your child for school. Submitting a School Choice or transfer application alone does not register them. You must complete the online registration form and submit the required documentation in order for your child to be considered.


Non-Residents cannot apply for Pre-K programming in the Syracuse City School District.This includes the Montessori Pre-K Program.

If you are seeking to enroll your child, reside outside the City of Syracuse and are: (1) a SCSD Unit 1, 2, or 11 Employee, (2) Foster Parent or (3) temporarily residing outside the City of Syracuse, your home school may not appear on the School Lookup Tool. Please contact the Department of Student Registration, prior to completing the online registration form, should you have questions regarding your child's school assignment.

NEED HELP? Call (315) 435-4545 to schedule an appointment with a Registrar, or Contact us via email at registration@scsd.us.  Please allow up to 48 hours for a representative to respond to your email inquiry.
