New Online Student Enrollment Underway
22 days ago
The School District of University City has moved to an online enrollment process that will help ensure more accurate student and family data while streamlining the enrollment process. The new process began on July 1, 2016. Click here for a short video tutorial to help you get started.
Who must enroll?
All students new to The School District of University City, transitioning to a new school in the District (entering kindergarten, sixth grade and ninth grade) or entering third grade are required to enroll or re-enroll at the school. This enrollment is required before middle and high school course registration process may begin. Current District students entering sixth through twelfth grades should have completed enrollment and course selection during the school year and need only attend the registration and schedule pick-up. Incoming freshmen who have not yet enrolled should call University City High School at 314-290-4110 to schedule an appointment for July 19, 8am until noon.
Why are we doing this?
Online enrollment saves time and effort for parents; it is more efficient for the District providing more accurate information such as parent contact data. Parents enter information right into the system from the comfort of their homes, at their convenience. Parents will receive an email letting them know registration has been completed. If additional information is needed, the email will indicate what steps need to be taken.
How do we access the online enrollment?
Current parents should log in to the Parent Portal using their current log-in information. Enrollment forms are on the screen. Simply complete and submit. New families or families who have not used the Parent Portal will first need to complete the Parent Portal registration online. A valid email address is needed to complete this step. Once you have created a Parent Portal account you can proceed to the online enrollment.
What if I don’t have a computer or email address?
Computers will be available in the schools for enrollment. If an email address is needed, consider using a free email services such as Google and Yahoo to set-up your email account.
What about all my records?
Families will still need to provide documents such as birth certificates, immunization records and proof of residency. Those documents can be scanned and sent via email to the student’s school. If student is new to the District, those documents will need to be delivered in person.
What else can I do during online enrollment?
Parents can review all of the District’s policies update the media exclusion form online.
The District is also launching Student 360 from Tyler Technologies. This application allows students to review their info on their various devices. They can check grades, student lunch balances and more. Download the app from Google store.
For more information about enrollment procedures for new and transitioning students, call 314-290-4045.
