The GSFAPPS is the alternative application for students to apply for the HOPE and/or Zell Miller scholarships only.  It is completed via Georgia Student Finance Commission's website at www.gacollege411.org. You must create an account on this website to be able to access the application.  If you cannot access the application online or would prefer a paper application,  you can obtain a copy below. Please be advised the paper application must be mailed directly to Georgia Student Finance Commission.

Paper GSFAPPS (pdf)

This application is only valid for the HOPE and Zell Miller scholarships and is not used for any consideration of federal aid programs.  If you are interested in any federal aid programs then you must complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Completing the GSFAPPS in addition to the FASFA, allows our office the ability to award and review students for the HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarships in a more timely manner. 

The GSFAPPS is valid for seven (7) years ,so unlike the FAFSA, it does not have to be renewed every year.  If you complete a GSFAPPS for HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship, the Georgia College Office of Financial Aid will use this application from year to year to evaluate a your eligibility for the HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarship programs.  A student may complete both the GSFAPPS and the FAFSA to be considered for all financial aid.


The deadline to be reviewed for Georgia’s HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarships is the last day of class for the semester the student is seeking payment from these funds.  Students who think they may be eligible for either HOPE or Zell Miller MUST email the Financial Aid Office PRIOR to the last day of the semester they are seeking potential payment from either of these scholarship programs.  Please be aware that the GC Financial Aid office makes every effort to identify possible candidates based on academic history but it is the student’s responsibility if they have not been awarded these funds to initiate a review of their eligibility prior to the end of the semester they are seeking payment.  This policy is necessary due to imposed state-mandated deadlines for universities to finalize reconciliation of all payments.
