Ok, you’ve done your research and gathered all the documents you think you need. What comes next? Check out the information below on the steps to complete an application (remember: you need to do this before each year you plan to go to college). You can also go back and print a checklist.
How do I apply?
To apply for DCTAG follow these steps:
- Complete the DC OneApp yearly.
- Complete the FAFSA.
- Provide the DC OneApp Required Supporting Documents.
This looks simple (three basic steps), but it can be a little complicated. For example, sometimes it can take a few tries to provide the correct supporting documents.
Documents must be uploaded as PDFs, and should all be uploaded at the same time. This is why preparing all your documents in advance is important. Applicants who need more than 10 tries to upload the correct documents and applicants who cannot convert their documents to PDF files should call their DCTAG counselor.
You can upload documents from Monday, Feb. 1, 2021 - Friday, Sept. 17, 2021, at 5 p.m.
Follow the links above to break it down and don’t forget the three keys to success we shared earlier: start early, be persistent, and ask for help. The DCTAG team and OSSE are here to help you through the DCTAG application process.

At this time, DC Government employees are operating on a telework schedule and not able to meet students in person. Students, parents and guardians may continue to apply for DCTAG online and upload their supporting documentation. We will review applications electronically and send updates by email.
