Zell Miller Scholarship ProgramComplete an unaccredited home study program pursuant to O.C.G.A. §20-2-690(c), et seq. and then complete 30 semester or 45 quarter hours of college degree-level credit.

For purposes of the Zell Miller Scholarship Program, home study is an arrangement whereby a school-aged child is involved in a course of study in wich instruction is carried out at the direction of the parent rather than in a traditional classroom setting and is governed by and operating in accordance with the requirements of O.C.G.A. § 20-2-690(c).

A student who completes an unaccredited home study program may receive the Zell Miller Scholarship retroactively for his or her freshman year of college, if he or she earns a 3.30 cumulative grade point average after attempting 30 semester or 45 quarter hours of college degree-level credit. The student must have had a minimum combined score of 1200 on the math and reading portions of the SAT, in a single administration of the test or a minimum composite score of 26 on the ACT, in a single administration of the test, prior to completion of the home study program.

You must also submit an application for the Zell Miller Scholarship by completing either the current year FAFSA or the Zell Miller Scholarship application through GSFAPPS. The deadline to apply for the Zell Miller Scholarship retroactive payment is the last day of the semester or quarter immediately following the semester or quarter in which you reached the 30 semester or 45 quarter attempted-hour point (excluding summer semester).
