I thought this information would be helpful to share since I so often get questions related to financial aid and HOPE. If you are considering dropping a class and receive aid, please read and I strongly encourage you to consult with me as well.
Financial aid eligibility requires that students maintain a certain GPA and also that they successfully complete 75% of all coursework attempted at GT. There is also a maximum number of hours, including transfer credits, that can be attempted for each major. As October 16, the last day to drop an individual class with a grade of “W,” approaches, it’s important for students who receive financial aid to remember to check on the possible financial aid implications of dropping a class. Information is available at http://www.finaid.gatech.edu/policies/sap/. HOPE recipients should also refer tohttp://www.finaid.gatech.edu/hope/. A financial aid advisor is available to answer any questions. Contact information is at http://www.finaid.gatech.edu/contacts/.
