    Application Process for Transfer Students (students already in high school)
    IPoly accepts applications from students that are transferring from other high schools year-round on a first come, first served basis. Students are admitted at the beginning of each semester. Acceptance of high school transfer students is contingent on whether IPoly has openings, due to pre-existing waiting lists.

    Notification
    Due to the high volume of applications, patience is greatly appreciated. Applicants will be notified via mail regarding any missing documents. Eligible students with completed applications will be invited to an entrance exam. 

    Limited Openings
    Space is limited to 136 students per grade level. Once the spaces are filled, remaining student names will then be drawn to create a waiting list. Students placed on the waiting list will be contacted once there is an opening.

    The waiting list will be valid through the next school year. Students that are not admitted as freshmen will have an option to reapply for the following year, and maintain their ranking on the waiting list; they will not have to re-test.

    Requirements
    Students must be enrolled in 8th grade or high school to start the application.
