HOPE Scholarship 

The HOPE Scholarship program is administered by the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC) as directed by the state legislature.  The state legislature may make changes to the HOPE program at any time.  All HOPE GPA calculations are made by GFC. 

Many misunderstandings exist regarding how HOPE is calculated.  The following handout may be useful to those who are interested in learning more about which courses count, how bonus points are treated, and how the calculations work in general.  It may also be useful for students who want to try to monitor their own progress.  However, please note that this information is only a general and unofficial guide that has not been endorsed by GSFC.  Anybody with specific questions about HOPE calculations should contact GSFC.

Please note that beginning with the class of 2015, students must meet certain rigor requirements in order to be HOPE eligible.  See the handout below for specific details.

Please note:  Student must apply for the HOPE Scholarship before they start college.  This can be done two ways.  If a student files a FAFSA form, that will take care of it.  Students can also apply on
