Important Facts About HOPE Scholarships
If you would like to qualify for the Georgia HOPE Scholarship please be aware that in addition to earning a minimum 3.0 GPA as calculated by the GSFC (Georgia Student Finance Commission), you must meet basic eligibility requirements AND academic rigor requirements. The GSFC does not weight honors courses. Students must complete four full credit hours in academically rigorous courses from the list below:
1. Advanced math, such as advanced algebra and trigonometry, math III, taken at the high school, or an equivalent or higher course taken for degree level credit at an Eligible Postsecondary Institution;
2. Advanced science, such as chemistry, physics, biology II, taken at the high school, or an equivalent or higher course taken for degree level credit at an Eligible Postsecondary Institution;
3. Foreign language courses taken at the high school, or taken for degree level credit at an Eligible Postsecondary Institution; or
4. Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or Dual Credit Enrollment courses in Core subjects
Seniors – It is essential that you check to see if your correct Social Security number is on file with Northview. An incorrect SS number can impact getting the HOPE. You cannot qualify for HOPE without an official Social Security number.
