APS Centralized Admissions is introducing an online registration process that will shorten the time it takes to register students in Aurora Public Schools. Beginning April 17, parents and guardians will have access to online registration forms that they can complete on any computer. The online forms will be available in English and Spanish.

 After parents complete and print the online forms, they will go to the Centralized Admissions Office to verify their identification and address information. Centralized Admissions can also print the forms if a parent has the confirmation number received during the online registration process.

 The online registration link will be posted on the APS website at admissions.aurorak12.org beginning April 17. Registration for the 2015-16 school year runs from April 8 to May 29 to allow time for parents to complete the enrollment process prior to schools going on summer break. Parents can continue to register their children at the Centralized Admissions office after May 29, although they may need to wait until the end of July to complete the enrollment process at schools.

 The APS Centralized Admissions Office is located at 1075 Peoria Street and is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. If you have questions, please call Centralized Admissions at 303-326-2200.
