Enrollment Process for New Students

STEP 1: MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
Request an appointment to meet with the principal or counselor to learn more about Tustin Connect and to see if it is the right fit for your student. Click on the button below to request an appointment. Please bring your student and their most recent report card (K-8 students) or academic transcripts (9-12 students) to the appointment.


STEP 2: COMPLETE ENROLLMENT
At your appointment, you will receive information on how to complete the enrollment process. Enrollment packets are available online and at our offices. You can turn in your completed enrollment packets to our offices anytime after your appointment. If you live outside of the Tustin Unified attendance area, please see the information at the bottom of this page regarding obtaining an interdistrict transfer.

STEP 3: ATTEND MASTER AGREEMENT MEETING
After you submit your enrollment paperwork to our offices, you will set a master agreement appointment with your student's teacher. Students and parents attend a master agreement meeting to meet their teacher and to outline the yearly plan of study. Students will receive their first set of assignments and they will schedule their weekly check-in day and time. Most incoming students will have their first master agreement meeting prior to the first day of the school year. Students who enroll during the school year will have their master agreement meeting the first day they are enrolled with us.

WHO CAN ENROLL?
