How Long Can I Receive the HOPE Scholarship?

You can receive the HOPE Scholarship until one of the following occurs first:

  • you meet 120 attempted HOPE hours*
  • you have earned a Baccalaureate degree
  • you have been enrolled for 5 years at any postsecondary institution

*Likely, you will meet or exceed the 120 attempted HOPE hour cap first. Our Where Do I Find My HOPE GPA - Tutorial will assist you in tracking your HOPE attempted hours. Please be aware there is no appeal for this provision.

However, If your major requires more than 120 hours to earn a degree, as defined in the University Catalog, you will be able to receive HOPE funds up to that amount of hours or up to 136 attempted hours, whichever is less.
