  • Tracking HOPE Academic Eligibility


    Georgia's HOPE Programs are for those students who demonstrate academic achievement not only in high school but throughout their time in college.  Beginning in high school, Georgia students are able to track their My High School HOPE GPA through their GAfutures account to know if they are on track to earn the HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarship.

    • English 
    • Math
    • Science
    • Social Studies
    • Foreign Language

    Students can begin checking their HOPE GPA through their My GAfutures account starting in the 10th grade. To create a GAfutures account, visit: GAfutures.
