GPA Calculator for Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship

Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship (TELS/HOPE)

If you are a Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship recipient, the grade point average calculator below may assist you in determining your eligibility to continue to receive the scholarship.

This GPA calculator is provided for recipients of TELS (HOPE) only as a guide in determining continuing scholarship eligibility. It is important to remember that the GPA to determine TELS (HOPE) eligibility is calculated differently from UT’s GPA.

More information on the HOPE scholarship can be found on the One Stop website.
