A Message from the Desk of Assistant Superintendent Antoinette Mitchell

Dear Applicants,

Thank you for visiting the new OneApp, the online application for the DC Tuition Assistance Grant program. Attending college or other postsecondary institutions is more important today than it ever has been. By 2020, 76 percent of jobs in the District of Columbia will require some type of postsecondary education. That’s less than four years away! The Office of the State Superintendent (OSSE) is proud to offer the DC Tuition Assistance Grant, a program that offers support to District of Columbia students as they pursue postsecondary education. As you may know, for District of Columbia residents, DCTAG can provide up $10,000 in tuition assistance at two and four-year public institutions outside of DC and at HBCUs across the country, as well as at private institutions in DC.

OSSE is excited to share this new, mobile-friendly application with you. You can now access the OneApp on all formats, including cell phones and tablets. We worked hard to make this application as clear, brief and intuitive as possible. We hope the application is easier to complete than ever before and would appreciate your feedback along the way. Let us know about your application experience at DCOneAppSupport@dc.gov.  

As you make smart decisions about which school you will attend, we encourage you to apply to DCTAG and complete the FAFSA early. We look forward to helping you make your postsecondary education a reality.

Wishing you the very best,

Antoinette S. Mitchell
Assistant Superintendent
Postsecondary and Career Education,
