The bill would have changed definitions associated with implementation of Georgia's HOPE scholarship program. Specifically, it would have limited to 127 the number of semester hours for which a student in Georgia's postsecondary institutions may receive HOPE scholarship funding. If enacted, the bill would have applied to all postsecondary educational programs at private and public schools that grant baccalaureate degrees. The bill would also have eliminated differentiation among program titles such as associate and baccalaureate when considering eligibility for HOPE scholarship funding. The bill's provisions would not have taken effect until the 2005 fall semester. Prior statutory definitions would have continued to govern eligibility for HOPE scholarship funding.
