University of Georgia (UGA) students planning to enroll in courses at another HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship eligible institution are required to complete the HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship Transient Request. By submitting the HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship Transient Request the student is authorizing the UGA Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) to certify his/her eligibility for the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship to the host / transient institution.

HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship eligibility is limited to 15 total hours of payment per semester. Students are asked to self-report the number of hours they will be enrolled in at UGA for the semester. If a student attempts a different number of hours at UGA for the semester than initially reported, the student may be required to make a repayment of the HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship at both the home and host / transient institution.

Students are responsible to ensure host / transient institution charges (including tuition and fees) are paid by host / transient institution deadlines. This may result in students initially paying host / transient institution charges out of pocket and then receiving a reimbursement from the host / transient institution once the HOPE Transient Certification is processed.

The Transient Agreement students will sign details the deadlines that must be meet for submitting a host / transient institution transcript to the UGA Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Future HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship awards will be canceled and repayment requested if UGA does not receive the transcript by the deadline.

UGA students who submitted the HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship Transient Request but did NOT enroll/attend or receive the HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship at the host/transient institution are required to complete the HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship Certification of Non-Enrollment.  Please note a transcript is required if the student enrolled / attended the host / transient institution and withdrew from courses (receiving grades of W, WP, WF, etc.).
