How Long Can I Receive the HOPE Scholarship?

Beginning Fall 2015, you can receive the HOPE Scholarship until the first of the following events:

  • you have earned a Baccalaureate degree; OR
  • you have been enrolled for 5 years at any postsecondary institution; OR
  • *you meet 120 attempted HOPE hours or have received the HOPE Scholarship for eight (8) full-time equivalent semesters, whichever occurs later in this last bullet
