How to Maintain Your HOPE Scholarship
Students receiving the HOPE Scholarship Scholarship must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress, even if they have not reached the renewal tier checkpoints listed below:
  1. Students who are eligible to receive HOPE Scholarship as entering freshmen may receive payment through the semester that they have attempted (not earned) at least 30 semester or 45 quarter hours. However, all HOPE Scholarship recipients must have a grade point average of at least a 3.0 at the end of every Spring quarter term in order to continue their eligibility, except for freshmen enrolled for less than 12 credit hours for each of their first three college semesters. Freshmen recipients who enroll for less than 12 credit hours for each of their first three college semesters must have a cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.0 at the end of their third semester in order to continue their eligibility. All attempted hours and corresponding grades as shown on official transcripts are counted toward the HOPE Scholarship cumulative grade point average, including Learning Support study. Additionally, withdrawals are counted as attempted hours even if there is no academic penalty. Any college degree credit hours attempted or earned before high school graduation and hours exempted by examination do not count as hours attempted and are not included when calculating the HOPE Scholarship cumulative grade point average.
  2. If you have a HOPE Scholarship cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.0 by the end of the semester in which you attempted 30 semester or 45 quarter hours, you may renew your scholarship for 31 through 60 semester hours or 46 through 90 quarter hours attempted.
  3. If you have earned a HOPE Scholarship cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.0 by the end of the semester you attempted 60 semester or 90 quarter hours, you may renew your scholarship for 61 through 90 semester hours or 91 through 135 quarter hours attempted.
  4. If you have earned a HOPE Scholarship cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.0 by the end of the semester in which you attempted 90 semester hours, you may renew your scholarship for 91 through 127 semester hours or 136 through 190 quarter hours attempted. However, the total cumulative number of credit hours for which you can receive payment from any combination of the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship, HOPE or Zell Miller Grant, and Accel programs is 127 semester hours or 190 quarter hours.
