Enroll online in the DC College Savings Plan

Please note: It is not possible to save a partially completed online enrollment form; you must complete the online form once you begin. Therefore, before you begin online enrollment, you'll need to review Plan information, make decisions about how to invest, and gather important information.

Prepare to Enroll Online

  1. Read the DC College Savings Plan Program Disclosure Booklet, which describes the Plan features, the investment options (including their risks and expenses), and information about the Plan providers.
  2. Choose one or more investment options and decide how you want to contribute to your account (by check, Electronic Funds Transfer or Automatic Investment Program).
  3. Download and print the Application Form (Participation Agreement). The print Application Form includes the same questions you will answer in the online enrollment form, so use it to help you gather the information you'll need to enroll online.

Enroll Online

Go to "My Account" on the menu bar above and click on the section that says "Open a New Account".  Read the instructions carefully, and enter the information you have gathered in the steps above.

For more information on the DC College Savings Plan, please call 800.987.4859 (800.368.2745 for non-District residents) or contact your financial advisor.  An investor should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of an investment carefully before investing.

The District of Columbia College Savings Trust Program Disclosure Booklet contains this and other information. Read it carefully before you invest or send money.

An investor should also consider, before investing, whether the investor's or designated beneficiary's home state offers any state tax or other benefits that are only available to residents of that state. An investment in another state’s 529 college savings plan may not offer comparable benefits.

The Government of the District of Columbia does not guarantee investments in the program. Investment involves risk, including possible loss of principal.
