Special Application and Entrance Procedures
In some instances, students may wish to apply to a magnet program that is not shown on their online lottery application form. In this case, students will not be allowed to apply through the lottery, and must instead complete the online Request for Reassignment/Transfer form. Please note, failure to complete the instruction steps in the correct order may result in a delay or inability to process your request.

Please visit the Magnet Expectations Agreement page of the Magnet website for additional program-specific entrance and continuation requirements information.
Students without NC End of Year Assessment Data, when Used as Magnet Entrance Requirement
North Carolina EOG/EOC results are not required for future students making application for magnet school placement if currently attending a private or parochial school, are being home-schooled, or are living outside of North Carolina.
In these circumstances, the student must be at grade level and promoted at the end of the current year. The student will be held accountable for meeting established magnet continuation requirements for the magnet theme in which the student is enrolled the coming school year.
