VIRTUAL: To complete Step 3 virtually, you will need to:
- Send your acceptable proof of residency documentation (see page 2 of this document) to us at email@example.com.
- Once a member of our enrollment team has reviewed the documentation, they will follow up with you if anything else is needed.
- Once the documentation has been accepted by the enrollment team, we will send you a virtual DC Residency Verification Form (DCRV) through (SYSTEM TBD) to your email. You will need to sign the DCRV through this system only.
Policies pertaining to DC Residency Verification:
We can only accept the signed DCRV in person or via (SYSTEM NAME) per OSSE regulations. We cannot accept the signed DCRV form via email.
The person providing proof of DC residency must be the student’s parent or legal guardian/custodian. You may be asked to submit court documents to establish guardianship/custodianship.
If you are not the parent or legal guardian/custodian via court order, you will need to submit additional documentation to verify Other Primary Caregiver (OPC) status, including the OPC form and documentation to support your caregiver status (see page 2 of the form).
If you do not have the relevant documentation for the OPC form you can also complete the attestation form and have it signed by a third party, such as a legal, medical, or social services provider.
The Enrollment Team can help you with the Other Primary Caregiver forms – please reach out to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the Enrollment Hotline at (202) 378-2268, or come into our Enrollment Office Hours.
