WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HOPE ACCEL FUNDING AT SHORTER UNIVERSITY
The Accel Program of the HOPE Scholarship Fund
It is the student’s responsibility to verify that the classes they are enrolling in are listed in the directory of Accel-approved courses. Recipients are now limited to four semesters of Accel payment, regardless of the number of credit hours attempted during each of the four semesters. Students can enter the program as early as 9 th or 10 th grade, if they meet the academic requirements. However, such students are still limited to four semesters of Accel payment.

Applying for Accel Funds
Students must complete an Accel Program Application which is located on the GA College 411 website. It’s very important that this process be completed prior to enrolling in university courses. Otherwise, a risk will exist where the Accel program might not pay towards incurred tuition charges.
The HOPE Scholarship will pay for up to 127 credits hours of university coursework. The credit hours that are paid for by Accel to Joint Enrollment Students are subtracted from your total HOPE credits. In short, you are drawing on your HOPE funds early because you are taking university courses early.
