Georgia College Information
- All students should have a www.GAcollege411.org account. The College Guidance Office works with students in 8th grade "Transitions" course to get the account set up, but students and parents may choose to open an account on their own.
- Parents and students should explore the site to discover all of the great resources it provides, most especially the information regarding the HOPE Scholarship, FAFSA and other financial aid programs.
In addition, this is the site from which all online applications to colleges in the University System of Georgia (see link below) originate.
