Beginning in the Fall, 2014 semester eCore® tuition will be dropping from $189 to $169 per credit hour. The tuition rate for Georgia and non-resident students is the same. And, it is the first time since its debut in 1999 that tuition has been reduced.
eCore® is short for electronic core-curriculum and allows University System of Georgia (USG) students the opportunity to complete their 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. For more information on eCore® please visit the eCore® website.
