    Important Notices: 

    ♦ These transfers must be approved by both your district of residence AND the Temecula district

    ♦ Approved students are bound by the Interdistrict Attendance Policy, which can be viewed HERE 

    ♦ Transfers are not guaranteed and may be denied or rescinded at any time, due to unsatisfactory attendance, citizenship or scholarship.  In addition, students who move out of the TVUSD boundary may be denied due to schools or programs being at or near capacity.  

    ♦ Only letter grades of A+ through C- earned at one of our schools will qualify for credit for graduation  

    ♦ Once approved, these transfers must be renewed every year up until, and including, the 10th grade (11th and 12th graders who complete the prior school year ending on June 30th on an Interdistrict Transfer to TVUSD are no longer required to submit renewals)

    The Temecula District does NOT prescribe to the Allen Bill, based on a parent's work location

    SUBMIT ONLY IF you will continue to live in a different district (for example, Hemet of Fallbrook) and wish to attend the Temecula district.  If you are MOVING to the Temecula District and will live in TVUSD at the time of attendance, you DO NOT need a transfer - please follow the New Student Enrollment process  HERE, instead
