Enroll in Irvine USD

Welcome to the Irvine Unified School District!

Our teachers, administrators and support staff are committed to academic excellence and quality service for our families. As such, we hope to make the enrollment process as quick and convenient as possible.

To enroll, just follow the steps outlined below and you'll be on your way to a successful school experience.

***Enrollment for the 2017-18 school year began on March 3, 2017***

Enrollment for the 2018-19 school year will open on March 9, 2018.

Before you start...

Grade-Level Placement:
It is recognized that students do their best work in school when they are placed in a grade with other students of the same chronological age. The following links provide IUSD guidelines for placing students at the appropriate grade level. Please contact your neighborhood school if you have any questions regarding grade-level placement.

  • 2017-2018 School Year - Grade Level Placement Guidelines
  • 2018-2019 School Year - Grade Level Placement Guidelines

Assigned Neighborhood Schools:
Based on the address of your residence in Irvine, you will be assigned a neighborhood school. Please note that Culverdale and Westpark share a "Super Attendance" area, meaning both are considered that area's neighborhood schools. If you live in this area and Westpark becomes full in a grade level, Culverdale will be considered your neighborhood school, and vice versa.

Kindergarten Programs:
There are programs set up specifically for new incoming Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten students.

Intradistrict Open Enrollment Policy:
The district has an intradistrict open enrollment policy that allows students to apply to attend a school other than their assigned school. Approvals are for one year only and must be subsequently reviewed. Note that each school is required to serve the students who live within its attendance boundary before accepting students outside the boundary. Additionally, some schools may be unavailable for open enrollment.

step 1 - Online Enrollment

For students new to the district, IUSD has set up an online data entry process that will help you get started with the enrollment process. You must have a valid address within the Irvine Unified School District attendance area to use this system. Verification of residence and immunizations will be required before you complete the enrollment process. Please note: If a student previously attended a school within IUSD and is returning, you do not need to complete the Aeries Internet Registration in Step 1.
