Students receiving the HOPE Scholarship are required to maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.0 at certain checkpoints.
Students receiving the Zell Miller Scholarship are required to maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.3 at certain checkpoints. Students receiving the Zell Miller Grant are required to maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on HOPE-paid hours at the end of each term.

- In default on a previous educational loan or owe a refund on any grant.
- Enrolled as an unclassified student or special admit.
- Enrolled in a business & industry training center course or any course that does not lead to a degree, diploma, or certificate.
