ADEA DHCAS® Application Instructions
On the “My Program Selection” page, the green status bar
indicates the completeness of an application to a specific program. Once
complete, a blue “Pay and Submit to this Program” button will appear. Use this button to submit applications (prior
to the program deadlines). Applicants can then add programs and pay the
application fee by clicking the blue “Pay For My Programs” button at the top of
the page. Payment must be posted by 11:59pm EST on the program’s deadline date.
Applicants should carefully review their applications prior
to submission to avoid errors that cannot be corrected later.
