CIF Transfer Guidelines

St. John Bosco has established transfer student enrollment policies in coherence with the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) under the following conditions:

  1. Accepts students on a space-available basis;
  2. Charges tuition for its educational services;
  3. Has admissions requirements pertaining to academic standards and behavior.

As per the CIF Blue Book, "undue influence is any act, gesture or communication (including accepting material or financial inducement to attend a CIF member school for the purpose of engaging in CIF competition regardless of the source) which is performed personally, or through another, which may be objectively seen as an inducement, or part of a process of inducing a student, or his/her parent or guardian, by or on behalf of, a member school, to enroll in, transfer to, or remain in, a particular school for athletic purposes." Violation of this policy may jeopardize the eligibility of the student.
