Earn a 3.0 cumulative grade point
average after attempting 30, 60, or 90 semester hours, or 45, 90,
or 135 quarter hours of college degree-level credit, regardless of
high school graduation status
A student who was not academically eligible for the HOPE
Scholarship as an entering college freshman may become eligible for
the HOPE Scholarship after attempting 30, 60, or 90 semester hours
or 45, 90, or 135 quarter hours of study with a 3.00 cumulative
grade point average at the college level.
The college or university you are attending will determine your
eligibility after you have attempted the required hours, if the
student meets all other eligibility requirements.
A student who has never received HOPE Scholarship payment prior
to the Summer term 2011 becomes ineligible for HOPE Scholarship
after June 30th of the seventh full year following the student's
high school graduation date, home study completion date, GED test
date, or date the student stopped pursuing a high school diploma,
whichever occurs first, unless the student has been approved for an
extension of eligibility based on active duty military service.
