Choice Information

Choice Transfer Request

When a family resides outside of the district boundaries they are applying to attend, a Choice Transfer Request form is required in addition to a district's Choice application (may also be called a Non-Resident Application, Transfer Waiver, etc). Non-residents applying to attend a school within FWPS boundaries must submit both a Choice Application and Choice Transfer Request to be considered for placement.

Click Here to complete a Choice Transfer Request to:

Transfer to FWPS accompanying an incoming Choice application, or

To Transfer to Another School District / School outside of the Federal Way School District.


  • Choice Transfer Requests expire each year. This form must be filled out each year that a scholar attends a school in the Federal Way Public Schools boundary.
  • Please also contact the non-resident district to see if they have additional Choice/Transfer paperwork.
