Parents sign each recommendation form and forwards to the child’s current school. The child’s current school returns the completed forms to ASD directly. If applying for the next school year, recommendation forms are submitted after December.
Once a student is accepted for admission and a seat is offered, the following documents are required to register a student with the UAE Ministry of Education. Please note, these documents are not needed at the application stage, only at enrollment.
Original End-of-Year Report Card
Student’s Emirates ID (student and one parent) - present cards to Registrar's Office.
Health Office Information Form and Immunization Records
Tuition and Consent Form
The Transfer Certificate (TC) is a document required by the UAE Ministry of Education to register a student in any school in Dubai. The form should be completed on your child’s current school's letterhead and signed and stamped by the school. This is done close to the withdrawal date to reflect your child’s last day of school.
Note: Depending on the school's location (not curriculum), the TC needs the following attestation:
- United States, Canada, Western Europe, Australia or New Zealand: only the stamp and signature of the school
- Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries: stamp and signature of the school and Ministry of Education of the GCC country
- All other countries: stamp and signature of the school, the country's Ministry of Education and Foreign Affairs, and the UAE Embassy in that country.
Applications are not processed until all documents (excluding the Recommendation Forms) have been submitted.
