District of Columbia Tuition Assistance Grant (DCTAG)

DCTAG is a grant that assist Washington, D.C., resident students with the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition cost.

Eligible students must file the FAFSA, enroll at least part time (at least six credits), be billed as an out-of-state (non-Pennsylvania resident) student and meet the financial aid satisfactory academic progress requirement.

Eligible students may receive up to $10,000/year (split evenly between the fall and spring semesters).

All tuition-restricted funding (funding specifically designated for tuition only which includes all Temple academic merit scholarships and some outside scholarships) will impact the DCTAG grant amount.

The Office of Student Financial Services is required to wait until after the 16-week semester drop/add deadline to begin semester invoicing to DCTAG. And the semester grant funding will typically arrive well into the semester (fall semester grants normally arrive in mid-October, while spring semester grants normally arrive mid-March).
