GEORGIA MATCH: New Initiative by Governor Kemp
On October 5, 2023, Georgia launched a new initiative called GEORGIA MATCH, established by the state to connect all students to higher education opportunities. Through this initiative, all 2024 seniors will receive letters from the state listing all of the Technical College Systems of Georgia (TCSG) and University System of Georgia (USG) colleges seniors are academically qualified to attend based on their HOPE GPA.
All GEORGIA MATCH participating institutions will waive application fees during November 2023 for students who apply through GEORGIA MATCH. Please note the University of Georgia, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Georgia College & State University are not GEORGIA MATCH participants.
Seniors may view their personalized MATCH list, request more information, or select "Claim Your Spot!" at gafutures.org/GEORGIAMATCH beginning next week. The state has already started sending out letters. Students who do not have a social security number on file with the school will not get a letter, nor will students who do not have a valid USPS address. Another round of letters will go out by the first week of November for those who have corrected these issues.
