Transfer Applicants
Mid-year transfer applications for Jan 2020 are now closed.

Transfer Policy

Jesuit will accept sophomore and junior transfers on a space-available basis between August and November of each year. Decisions on transfer applicants will be based on previous merit, a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative GPA in College Prep level work, and the availability of space within the class. Jesuit does not accept senior transfers unless they are coming from another Jesuit high school or are moving from out of state. Mid-year transfers will be considered on a case-by-case basis by calling the Office of Admissions at (916) 480-2127. 

All transfer applicants need to:

  • complete the online application
  • pay the $50 application fee
  • submit current year teacher recommendation forms and official transcripts
  • take HSPT (if applying for 10th-grade only)
  • participate in student/parent interview

The recommendation forms and academic record request will be available to you from the parent portal once you submit the application. For applicants to the 10th grade, payment of the $50 application fee secures your place for the High School Placement Test (HSPT). We will contact you as soon as we have a test date scheduled.

All Transfer applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the school year. All applicants, accompanied by at least one parent, will participate in an admissions interview. The interviews last approximately 15-20 minutes and will be arranged once the transfer application is complete.

All admissions decisions are considered conditional upon receipt and review of the applicant’s final transcript.
