THE HOPE Accel Program
Funded by the Georgia Student Finance Commission. Accel pays for tuition, a portion of mandatory fees, and provides participating students with a book allowance, in keeping with the benefits provided by the HOPE Program. Courses pursued by students in the Accel Program must come from the approved course directory available at www.gacollege411.org. The list is also supplied to high school guidance counselors in the State. Credit hours paid by the Accel Program will count towards the maximum limit of 127 semester hours paid by the HOPE Program. Georgia residency, high school accreditation, and U.S. citizenship requirements for HOPE Program eligibility apply to Accel award eligibility as well.
