BU Enrollment Process

The enrollment process is different depending on what time of year it is and when the student would like to start attending Boulder Universal (BU). Most BU students complete the BVSD Open Enrollment Application by early January so that they have the best chance at attending BU for the following school year.

If a student wants to start at BU at the beginning of the school year, they must go through the Open Enrollment Process or Late Open Enrollment Process (see dates listed above). If the school year has already begun and it's between September 15 and April 15, the parent/guardian can submit an Administrative Transfer (AT) request. More details are listed below.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for the OE process can also be found on this website by scrolling to the bottom of the page.

Factors To Consider...

Below are details of how the BU enrollment process tends to unfold in the course of a school year. These are important factors to consider for Boulder Universal enrollment:

  • The best way to ensure a spot at Boulder Universal is to fill out an Open Enrollment (OE) request during the OE window. View the OE process and online application link on the BVSD Open Enrollment Website.  All other requests or methods are not guaranteed and are limited to space availability.

  • Changing BVSD schools, regardless if it is through Open Enrollment (OE) or Administrative Transfer (AT) is a permanent change in your student’s enrollment. The seat at the student's previous school is surrendered and a request to return to another BVSD school must go through the OE or AT process.

  • Counselors meet with every student prior to enrollment in order to help students understand what it is like to transition from brick and mortar to an asynchronous online learning environment/setting.  Parents/guardians are allowed to late decline after this meeting in accordance with JECC-R Policy (JECC-R English, JECC-R Spanish)

  • Boulder Universal is NOT an alternative school.  We have the same expectation, rigor, and graduation requirements as all BVSD schools.

  • High School students at BU can take FRCC course, but enrollment in AP classes are unlikely.
