eCore – short for electronic core-curriculum - allows University System of Georgia (USG) students the opportunity to complete the first two years of their collegiate careers in an online environment. eCore courses are taught entirely online, except for the occasional proctored exam. eCore courses are designed, developed, taught and supported by faculty and staff from the USG.

eCore is a convenient and adaptable option for either getting started in college or for resuming college after a break or pause. The core curriculum  primarily consists of courses required during the first two years of college for a given degree. Not all core curriculum classes are available via eCore; you may need to take some core classes in a traditional classroom setting.

 Cost.  Tuition for eCore classes is $169 per credit hour*. This tuition rate is the same for either Georgia resident or non-resident students. Additional expenses include textbooks, course materials, and test proctoring charges. Also, students will pay a mandatory campus fee as well as a technology fee if required by the affiliate institution.  Review this Cost Comparison for more details.

*Beginning in the Fall 2014 Semester, eCore tuition rate changed to $169 per credit hour. If you have any questions concerning this change, please contact us at 678-839-5300 or 1-855-93ECORE or at
