Checkpoints for HOPE and Zell Miller Eligibility

HOPE Check Points

How Eligibility is Determined - HOPE GPA and Attempted Hours

What is a HOPE GPA?

Your initial eligibility is determined by the Georgia Student Finance Commission** based on your high school HOPE GPA and the completion of academic rigor courses. However, after your first term of enrollment in college, your eligibility for HOPE or Zell Miller depends on your college HOPE GPA.This is not necessarily the same as your GPA on WolfWatch! All the grades you earn from all重庆欢乐生肖官方网址 colleges after high school graduation (your dual enrollment classes will not be included), except for grades of W, S, U, and I, are used to calculate your HOPE GPA.

What is an Attempted Hour?

Attempted Hours are used to determine your HOPE checkpoints, NOT your HOPE GPA. If you begin the class, it will count as attempted hours, unless you withdraw from it during the Drop/Add period. Classes taken prior to high school graduation (such as dual enrollment) do NOT count as Attempted Hours. Classes taken at other colleges will also count as Attempted Hours. You can find your Attempted Hours and HOPE GPA by logging into Banweb and viewing the "HOPE Eligibility Status" tool.

* The Georgia Student Finance Commission determines high school student eligibility from the student's GPA, fulfillment of academic rigor requirements, and achievement of test scores. UWG only determines that the student is an eligible US citizen and GA resident, and that the application requirement is met. Questions or issues regarding high school graduate eligibility should be directed to 1-800-505-4732 (GSFC). 

** Academic Rigor Requirements and their fulfillment are determined solely by the Georgia Student Finance Commission. For more information about rigor requirements, please view page 10 of the . Rigor requirements do not need to be met if seeking to gain HOPE Scholarship AFTER high school graduation for the first time.

***The HOPE Grant and Zell Miller Grant are not offered at UWG.
