The Hogwarts Admissions Process is designed to be as simple and accurate as is magically possible. Lending to its ease is our Magical Child Registry, a comprehensive list of every witch and wizard ever born.
Each year, the Registry produces a shortlist of magical children who are approaching age 11. These children receive acceptance letters by owl or muggle post.
It is possible, during the updating and transfer of the Registry, that names have been omitted from recent lists. These potential students, of course, will be admitted upon discovery of the mishap. If you feel your name has been omitted erroniously, please complete our admissions application.
If you feel you have received an acceptance letter in error, you are mistaken.
