Submit your Transfer Application

  • All students attending Hillsboro Online Academy are on an In-District Transfer from their neighborhood school.  In-District Transfers are only good for the current school year and expire in June. 

    If you plan on returning to HOA for the upcoming school year, please submit your In-District Transfer Application as soon as possible.  The Priority window for the upcoming school year is January 1-31 and letters will will be mailed home by Febrary 28th.  Requests received after the Priority Window will be held for review in mid- to late-May.

    If a transfer is not received, students will be expected to return to their neighborhood school.  The school would need to be contacted concerning registration and forecasting for classes.

    Students living in another District and currently attending HOA on an Inter-District Transfer do not need to reapply.


District Transfer Information

  • Transfers are required for students to attend a school other than their "home school"-- the school assigned based on the parent/guardian's legal address of residence.

    Note that your city of residence does not define your school district. The Hillsboro School District comprises parts of several cities, including Banks, Beaverton, Cornelius and Portland, in addition to Hillsboro. Boundaries also may run across housing developments and apartment complexes. To confirm your home school, please call our Transportation Department at 503.844.1123

    There are two main types of transfers:

    • In-District — transfers within the Hillsboro School District
    • Inter-District — transfers between the Hillsboro School District and another district (i.e., Banks, Beaverton or Forest Grove School Districts).
