Riverside Unified School District welcomes families living outside RUSD boundaries to submit a District of Choice transfer application for the 2020-2021 school year beginning November 1, 2019 through January 10, 2020. 

Please keep in mind that a District of Choice transfer request is to the desired district and not a particular school site. However, every effort will be made to accommodate specific school requests based on space availability.

Please Note: Parents submitting a District of Choice transfer do not need to submit an inter-district transfer. 

Once a student is approved under a DOC transfer and continues to reside outside RUSD boundaries the student can remain within RUSD until they graduate (with some exceptions). When a student promotes to middle or high school the Pupil Services Department will contact the parent/legal guardian with the DOC Promote form to complete and submit to our office. 

If the family moves into the RUSD boundaries parent must come into our office and submit an intra-district transfer. 

If you have any further questions please contact the Pupil Services Department at (951) 352-1200.
