What is an interdistrict transfer?

Interdistrict transfers are for:

  • Students who reside outside of the GUSD boundaries and request to transfer into a GUSD school.

  • Students who live in Gilroy and request to transfer to a school outside of GUSD .

Do you live in Gilroy and want to transfer from one GUSD school to another? You need to request an intradistrict transfer, not an interdistrict transfer. 

For transfers out of GUSD

NEW FOR 2021: All request forms must be turned through the web-based submission page. Requests will not be accepted via fax or in person.**

IMPORTANT things you should know: 

  • The GUSD request form MUST include all required documentation to be processed. 
  • Expect and plan for two weeks or more of processing time for all COMPLETE packets. Check with your requested district for deadlines.

If you have any questions, email

** Do not use online submission for requests to San Martin/Gwinn's DIME program   (MHUSD)Email for specific instructions.  

For transfers into GUSD

Requests will be accepted starting Feb. 1, 2021. Final decisions may not be made until later in the spring. 

  • Renewals: You are responsible for submitting renewal requests EACH SCHOOL YEAR to your district of residence AND for including the required documentation. Do not wait until after your transfer expires on June 4, 2021 to submit your requests.
  • For most incoming 6th-graders and incoming 9th-graders:  Final decisions will not be determined until mid-summer, usually in July. 
  • For all TK and kindergarten students: Final decisions for these students will not be issued until the second week of school (in August 2021). You will not have a final decision or school placement until that time. 

Expect and plan for two weeks or more of processing time for all COMPLETE packets.
