Post Eligibility Program
The ultimate goal of the Post Eligibility Program is to provide academic and tuition support to former Georgia student-athletes who left the university without completing their degree. This program permits them to complete their undergraduate coursework and graduate.
In order to participate in the Post Eligibility Program (PEP), a student must be a former Georgia student-athlete who received an athletic grant-in aid, has exhausted eligibility, and did not graduate. Each individual must have a 2.00 cumulative grade point average and be within 36 semester-degree hours of graduation. In addition, each candidate must complete the PEP agreement contract and provide an academic plan approved by their college academic advisor of their remaining courses. Individuals in the program are evaluated each semester with regard to their academic performance. Exceptions to the guidelines must be approved by the Athletic Director.
The Post Eligibility Program provides assistance with re-enrollment into Georgia, in-state tuition, books, tutoring services, and academic counseling.
