When a student transfers to Garces Memorial from an accredited high school only Semester Grades and Units will be posted on the Garces Memorial Transcript; and, the grades will not be used in computing the Garces Memorial Cumulative G.P.A. or used in determining class rank.

When a student transfers to Garces Memorial during the academic year (other than at the beginning of the 2nd semester), the withdrawal grades and/or marking period (quarter) grades will not be posted on the Garces Memorial transcript and these course grades will not be averaged with the comparable course grades earned at Garces Memorial. The semester grades assigned by Garces Memorial instructional staff will reflect the students' academic performance (in that course) while in attendance only at Garces Memorial.

Athletic Information for Transfer Students

If a transfer student intends to participate on one of the school sponsored athletic teams, the student's parent should immediately contact the Athletic Director after the student has been officially accepted and enrolled. The student must secure the "Application for Waiver of Residential Eligibility Requirements" and "Application for Waiver of C.I.F. Transfer Rule" forms. This form should be obtained as soon as possible to facilitate an evaluation of the athlete's eligibility. Once the form is completed and returned, the Athletic Director will submit the form to the C.I.F. for evaluation.  The process can take as long as two or three weeks.  Transfer students are not be allowed to participate on a school team until he/she is cleared by the CIF.
