    1. Complete and submit the online application 
    2. Meet with an enrollment department representative at the Birmingham Education and Administration building to complete and finalize the process.   

    If you have a student attending Birmingham Public Schools for the first time, you will need to enroll your student using our online enrollment system.

    • PLEASE NOTE:  NEW student enrollment does NOT apply to students already enrolled who wish to open enroll to a different building within the district.

    If your student is a sibling to an already enrolled BPS student, you may log into your Infosnap account to add the new student.
