Step 3: Prepare Your Residency Documents
During enrollment, you will need to upload the following two residency items.
All addresses on the documents must match the address that you are using to enroll.
Note: If you live outside of Bellevue SD attendance boundaries and are enrolling an approved nonresident student, you do not need to provide residency documents.
Both Item 1 AND Item 2 are required to establish residency
Item 1: 2 UTILITY BILLS –
Puget Sound Energy (PSE), Republic Services garbage bill, Xfinity cable bill, City of Bellevue water bill.
- This can be two recent consecutive months of the same utility bill OR two different utility bills for the same month.
- View examples: two consecutive months (same utility) (PDF) | two different utilities (same month) (PDF).
Item 2: 1 PIECE OF GOVERNMENT MAIL –
Something that was sent through the US Postal Service.
- For government mail, most families find their car registration the easiest to send in, but we also accept a letter from Social Security, immigration, unemployment, health finder exchange, Department of Licensing, USPS Change of Address confirmation letter, or election ballot. Mail from the Bellevue School District does not qualify as “Government Mail.”
Please save copies of these documents in the same folder (i.e., desktop) on your computer where you saved your enrollment documents. Photographs from a smartphone are accepted if the image is readable.
If you are unable to provide residency documents – there are other options.
