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.
