HOPE Scholarship GPA Continuation Requirements

For HOPE Scholarship purposes, your HOPE GPA is calculated differently than your Institutional GPA. Your HOPE GPA includes ALL credits received after high school graduation including developmental and repeated courses. We do not include any credits received prior to high school graduation. For example, we do not count dual enrollment courses in your HOPE GPA.
