Yes, the HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship will pay for your online courses if you are meeting the general requirements to receive the award. Please notify the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid of your plans to enroll for the summer so that we can determine your eligibility for financial aid.
Some students will be required to complete the process of Verification. Verification is a process through which the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid must verify the accuracy of the information provided on the FAFSA with guidance from the Department of Education.
If, and only if, you are selected for Verification, you must complete the Verification process before any awards will be finalized.
Case-by-case we are required to review discrepancies and resolve any issues in order to award federal, state, and institutional aid. To resolve a discrepancy our office will request appropriate additional information.
Our office will contact students about submitting additional required documents, if needed. Students are encouraged to login to BuzzPort on a regular basis to view their Financial Aid requirements and eligibility tab to ensure all documents are submitted on time and to review any outstanding documents that may be required.
It important that all documentation is submitted as soon as requested, preferably before the priority deadline. If you are not able to comply, please contact your Financial Aid Advisor.
The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will make any and all changes required as a result of Verification.
An award letter will be generated once students have been officially admitted to Georgia Tech and all final transcripts have been received and are articulated.
Award notices can be viewed via BuzzPort. Email notices regarding the award letter for the next academic year will occur during the following times according to student classification:
Returning Students: Mid-June
Transfer Students: Mid-June for Fall entrants.
Graduate Students: June-July.
Graduate students receiving a Graduate Assistantship and/or Fellowship should contact their academic department or outside fellowship sponsors to determine their award levels. As our office becomes aware of additional forms of aid, we will revise your award as necessary.
