    HOW TO CHECK YOUR HOPE GPA

    1. Log in to www.gafutures.org

    2. Under “News You Can Use” select the “Shortcuts“ tab then select, “Your HOPE GPA”.

    3. Create an account or sign in to your existing account (if you forgot your username or password, click on the HELP link to retrieve the info. If that does not work, create another account.)

    4. Enter your Name, Date of Birth, and Social Security Number.

    You will be able to view any information available on your high school HOPE GPA. The HOPE GPA that you see prior to the end of June will be your preliminary HOPE GPA. Your final high school transcript will be transmitted to the Georgia Student Finance Commission by the Jackson High School in June of each school year. At that time, your final HOPE GPA will be calculated by the Georgia Student Finance Commission.
