Student Success Team

Students enrolled in eCore courses receive support from the renowned USG eCampus Student Success Team, whose model has been proven to increase engagement and student outcomes.. Our outreach starts before the first day of class, with online tutorial classes and personal start-of-term phone calls. During the term, we work closely with instructors to identify and engage with students who may need extra encouragement and resources in order to be successful.

eCore courses are offered through SACSCOC-accredited institutions of the University System of Georgia. Credit is awarded by the student’s home institution, just as courses completed on-campus.

Convenience and Flexibility

eCore courses are taught entirely online in an asynchronous format, which meanstudents are not required to log in for assigned “class times”. Each course has a syllabus and schedule to follow, but students are free to complete these assignments before work in the morning, on a lunch break, or even in their pajamas after the kids are put to bed. Courses are also offered in convenient 16-week and 8-week accelerated formats, allowing students to control their own schedule and choose what is best for their lifestyle.

Accessible Course Design

Students with special needs or disabilities will find a welcoming, accessible environment in eCore courses. All eCore courses comply with ADA and Section 508 requirements to accommodate students with disabilities or special needs.

Highly Qualified Instructors

Faculty members from universities and colleges throughout the University System of Georgia are selected to teach eCore courses. Current eCore faculty members include leaders in innovative teaching practices and published researchers, just as you would find in face-to-face classrooms. These faculty members are experienced online instructors, and attend additional training in online teaching through eCore.
