For the 2021–22 school year, previously approved intra-district transfer students do not need to re-apply every year when remaining at the same campus. If the previously approved student is changing campuses – from elementary to middle or middle to high school – they will need to apply and pay the application fee if their desired campus is different from their zoned campus.

The information below, a detailed breakdown by grade level with notable exceptions, applies only to approved Leander ISD transfer students for the 2019–20 or the 2020–21 school years. Students looking to transfer for the first time in the 2021–22 school year will need to follow processes outlined on the Student Transfer page of the district website.

Note: The grade levels listed below refer to a student’s grade in the 2020–21 school year unless otherwise noted.
