Is it true that as a resident of Washington DC I am able to attend any public institution in the nation and be considered an in-state student for tuition purposes?
Residents of Washington DC will be classified as out-of-state residents for tuition purposes.
These students may be eligible for the DC Tuition Assistance Program (DC TAG). This program allows the student to attend any public institution in the nation and pay the in-state tuition rate. The grant will pay the difference between the in-state and out-of-state tuition rate and is considered a source of financial aid. The DC TAG program is subject to certain maximum dollar limitations.
