the Combined Paid-Hours limit of 127 semester or 190 quarter hours from any combination
of Zell Miller or HOPE Scholarship Paid-Hours, plus HOPE or Zell Miller Grant Paid-Hours,
plus, through FY2011, Accel Program Paid-Hours.
Hours for which HOPE/Zell Miller Grant funds were paid will be tracked starting
with Summer Quarter 2003 except for hours for which a student received HOPE Grant
payment prior to high school graduation and before Fall Quarter 2004. Hours for
which Accel Program funds were paid will be tracked starting with Fall Quarter 2004.

with Summer Quarter 2003.
If a student attempts 127 semester or 190 quarter hours at a combination of one
or more post-secondary institute(s) before reaching the Combined Paid-Hours limit,
he or she is ineligible to receive further HOPE Scholarship payment.
