Students currently receiving preschool services through Prince William County Public Schools do not complete the online application, and instead should contact the school at which the student will be attending Kindergarten to complete the enrollment requirements.

Step 1: Complete the Online Registration Application

  1. To use the online registration system, parents will access the Online Registration Account & Records Access screen. Enter your ParentVUE Username and Password and click Login. If you have never activated your ParentVUE account, please contact your student's school for assistance.
  2. To register for the upcoming school year, scroll through the list of options and select Online Registration (New Students)* for the designated school year.
  3. The Introduction Screen will display important information pertaining to online registration for your student, including helpful links to Prince William County Public Schools enrollment resources and regulations. Review the information on this page before proceeding with your application, then click Continue.
  4. Follow the instructions and click the Save and Continue at the bottom of each screen to move forward. As each section is completed, a green checkbox will appear next to the section name.

Step 2: Finalizing Your Enrollment

  1. Parents who have completed the online registration process may contact their child's base school to schedule the follow-up in-person appointment. The in-person appointment will finalize your child's enrollment.
  2. Bring your photo ID (for security purposes/entrance to the building), a physical copy of the student's original birth certificate, and any other required documents that were not uploaded to your online application (i.e., proof of residency, proof of ID, immunizations, health/medical forms, etc.).

Please contact your student's school if you have any questions regarding the application review and approval process.

Reference Information for Online Registration

Once a section has been completed, you may navigate back the section by selecting the tab from the navigation tree on the left side of the screen.

Introduction Tab

  • Student Summary - displays all students associated with your parent record (regardless of their enrollment status). If any information is incorrect, please contact your student's school before proceeding.
  • Signature - captures your electronic signature. Your name must be entered exactly as it appears in the upper right corner of the screen. By entering your electronic signature here, you are attesting that you are the account holder, are authorized to provide the information within this application for registration and agree that the information is accurate to the best of your knowledge.

Family Tab

  • Home Address - Verify your home address. If your address has changed, enter your new address in the search field. Once your address displays, click it to populate the address fields. If your address is not found in the search, you may manually enter your home address in the address fields. Once entered, the home address should be formatted as it would on normal US Postal mail.
    • If your address is outside of the PWCS boundaries, but you would like to be considered for enrollment at a PWC school, you may proceed with the application. Upon completion of the application you will need to contact the desired school to complete your enrollment, which may require the completion of a Student Transfer Request.
  • Mail Address - by default, your address is presumed to be the same as your home address. If your mailing address differs from your home address, unselect the checkbox, and enter your mail address in the applicable fields. Once entered, the mailing address should be formatted as it would on normal US Postal mail.

Parent/Guardian Tab

This tab is for all parents and guardians who are associated with one or more student(s). Relationships to each student are defined later in the process on the Student tab. Only parents and guardians with legal rights to access the student's electronic records are to be included on this tab. Stepparents are not to be entered on this tab, they are to be listed on the Emergency Contact tab instead. If a stepparent attains custody of the student, they are considered a legal guardian and will have permission as per the custody document. Although the enrolling parent (you) may add all parent/guardian records, once the student is enrolled, you may only update information for parent/guardian(s) who reside at the same Home Address. For more information, please reference PWCS Regulation 794-1 and PWCS Regulation 794-5.

  • Demographics - Verify all parent/guardian(s) associated with the student along with the parent's military connected status, if applicable. For existing parents, the names cannot be updated via online registration as this information has already been validated at a PWC school. Please contact the school directly to make any name changes.
  • Contact Information - enter the contact number and email address for the parent/guardian. All parent/guardians must have at least one phone number listed. An email address is required for enrolling parent.

Emergency Tab

Please review the existing contact information and add any emergency contacts as deemed necessary. It is encouraged to list at least two emergency contacts, other than the parent/guardian (i.e. neighbor, babysitter, stepparents, relative, etc.).

  • Demographics - at minimum, the contacts first and last name must be entered. Optionally, you may enter the address and preferred language for the emergency contact.
  • Contact Information - enter at least one contact number for the emergency contact.

  • Demographics - enter the student's information as it appears on their legal birth certificate. You will also select the parent with whom the student primarily resides. The student's school selection (i.e., zone school) will be determined based on this address. Additionally, you will need to indicate the type of home the student resides in (i.e. single-family home, townhouse, apartment, etc.). For Kindergarten enrollment, the student must be 5 years old by September 30 of the year for which the parent wishes to enroll the student. Military families that wish to enroll students who will not meet the age requirement for Kindergarten enrollment, but are eligible via the Military Compact Statute, must contact their school to complete enrollment.

If you reside outside of the school boundaries or you reside within the school boundaries, but we are unable to identify the property address (i.e. new construction, new 911 address listing, etc.), a zoned school will not populate.
