What is eCore?
eCore – short for electronic core-curriculum – allows University System of Georgia 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 exams. 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, taking a class close to home during summer, 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.
Before you can register for an eCore class through Banner, you’ll need to complete the eCore Introduction Quiz.
