If you attend an school outside of Weld County, your school will not need to upload student data. We will just require further verification of residency and enrollment when we get to that point of the application.

  • Look at the list on your left to see which schools have currently uploaded student data – if your school is listed, this means that your data is in our system and you will not need to do further verification of residency and enrollment.
