Tuition for eCore courses is just $159 per credit hour, and is the same for both Georgia and out-of-state residents.
eCore courses are offered through SACSCOC-Accredited USG institutions and are eligible for the same types of financial aid as on campus courses. Students wishing to utilize Financial Aid for eCore courses should contact the Financial Aid Office at their home institution for further information.
All eCore courses include Open Educational Resources (OER) in place of traditional textbooks. OERs are digital resources embedded inside the course at no cost to the student. You read that right, the textbooks are FREE! Lab Science courses do require the purchase of a lab kit. Information on lab kit pricing is available on the Course Description page for each course.
eCore courses require at least one (but no more than two) proctored exams per course. There are several proctoring options available for students including online proctoring through ProctorU as well as on-site testing at USG Institutions, TCSG locations, and private testing services. Proctoring costs will vary by location and method chosen by the student.
Employees of the University System of Georgia may be eligible to register for eCore courses through the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). For more information on TAP eligibility, please visit the University System of Georgia website.
