What is eCore? 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 via FVSU or in a traditional classroom setting.
Meet with your academic advisor and discuss your academic program of study and if eCore courses would be appropriate for you to take. It is critical that any eCore courses you wish to take are appropriate for your degree program.
