University Schools Lottery
University Schools utilizes an online lottery method to select applicants for any available open seat. We automatically re-enroll students who are currently enrolled unless parents notify us of other arrangements. We will accept online open enrollment applications all year; however, to guarantee inclusion in the first lottery round held in January, we must receive online open enrollment applications by the second Friday in December. The lottery begins in January and continues through September.
By policy, we give priority to the siblings of current University Schools students and staff members’ children. We will notify those selected in the lottery by text and email after which you will have five business days to accept the offer.
If you are coming from a District 6 school, we will request any required documentation for enrollment. If you are coming from an out-of-district school, you will need to complete the New Student Registration, and the following documents will need to be uploaded:
- Birth certificate
If enrolling in high school, final acceptance is contingent upon the successful completion of the 8th grade.
University Schools may deny enrollment based on misrepresentation or non-disclosure of a material fact on the application, expulsion within the preceding 12 months, graduation from 12th grade from any school or failure to return the required registration paperwork.
Applicants are responsible to visit our online open enrollment system to update any changes to their application including sibling status, address, and phone numbers. Until chosen by lottery, all online open enrollment applications will remain active and kept in the lottery database until we offer enrollment to the applicants or the parent/guardian requests removal. We determine eligibility for interscholastic athletics in accordance with the rules of the Colorado High School Activities Association. Please note transportation is the responsibility of parents/guardians.
