Student Pre-Registration


parent and student at computer Welcome to the Department of Defense Education Activity's Online Student Pre-Registration application. This web-based application enables you to pre-fill the necessary forms your children will need to register for DoDEA schools.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I complete the online forms, do I still have to go to the school for any reason?

Yes, you will still have to go to the school to update the documents (new address or phone number), as well as complete other forms (bus routes, English as a Second Language, media and Internet), and sign the official registration request. If you did not attach a copy of orders/source documents for enrollment, then you will need to provide them at that time.

Do I have to use the online pre-registration system?

No, you can go to the school where your dependent will attend or to the centralized registration site. It is recommended that you call or e-mail ahead of time to find out if the school community has a centralized site.

Why should I complete the online pre-registration if I have to go to the school to complete the registration process?

Completing the online registration will reduce the amount of time you will have to wait at the registration site.

Can I attach documents in the online pre-registration program?

Yes. We encourage you to attach a copy of your orders, verification of birth date for students entering kindergarten or 1st grade, immunization records, etc.

I'm not sure which housing community we will be living in overseas at our next base, how do I pre-register for my dependent's school?

This system allows you to select the country and base/community if you know them. They are not required for pre-registration. If you do know where you will be living then specifying the country and base/community will reduce the amount of time you will have to wait at the registration site.

Can I use this system to register a student that is already enrolled and returning to the same school next year (referred to as re-registration)?

No, this system cannot re-register a student.
