Not the way it worked for my son. His GPA went with him. For HOPE it all counts.
I'm not sure how HOPE counts GPA for their eligibilty, but colleges don't let you transfer grades in, see the quote from GT below. The credits count, but the grade doesn't count in your GT GPA. If you had a 4.0 at uga for 2 years then a 2.0 at GT for 2 years, GT will report your GPA as a 2.0 on your transcript. The uga classes will appear on the transcript with a grade of T.

In the below, non-resident credit is any credit from outside GT, not from out of Georgia.

Non-resident credit is not computed as a part of the student's grade point average at Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech transfers credits, not grades. Grades for courses completed at other institutions are not calculated into the Georgia Tech GPA.

This was 20 years ago, but I transferred into Tech. My previous GPA definitely didn’t transfer on my GT transcript, but HOPE did calculate my GPA from my prior school. Thank God!

Hope counts both schools' GPAs.
