The Georgia Student Finance Commission determines a student's HOPE eligibility---not ECHS. Seniors are required to have credit for 4 rigor courses in addition to a 3.0 G.P.A. (academic classes only) to be eligible for the HOPE scholarship. (The G.P.A. displayed on the student's transcript is not the same as the student's HOPE G.P.A.) The following courses are possible options for rigor courses within the ECHS curriculum:AP LanguageAP LiteratureChemistry 1Forensic SciencePhysicsHuman AnatomyAP ChemistryAP BiologyAP Environmental ScienceAP Human GeographyAP GovernmentAP US HistoryAP MicroeconomicsAP PsychologyAP European HistoryAlgebra 2Advanced AlgebraCollege ReadinessPre-CalculusAP CalculusAP StatisticsFrench 2French 3AP FrenchSpanish 2Spanish 3AP SpanishClick Here for the Full List of Approved Rigor Courses: http://www.gafutures.org/media/113414/rigor-course-list-july-2016.pdf
The Georgia Student Finance Commission is charged with calculating your HOPE GPA through www.GAfutures.org . You can check your HOPE GPA by logging in to your account on www.GAfutures.org, Click on the Home tab (looks like a house), scroll down to "News You Can Use" and click on the "Shortcuts" tab. Then, click on "Your HOPE GPA." We upload student transcripts to GAfutures at the close of each semester.
