  2. Select "Student Information"
  3. Next select "View GoVIEW Account"

  5. For GoVIEW, your username includes an underscore (_) plus your campus acronym (CCGA). For Example, if you wrote down jdoe23, then your GoVIEW username will be jdoe23_ccga

Examples

Passwords:
Your password will be whatever your Banner Password was at the time that you registered for your eCore course this semester. If you cannot remember your password or have password issues, you may access the "Forgot Password?" link directly under the login area on the GoVIEW site, https://go.view.usg.edu. When clicking on the "Forgot Password" Link, you will need to type in your new username in the format listed above. The password reset link will be emailed to your campus email address. The email will be sent from donotreply@donotreply.view.usg.edu.

Important: If you choose to reset your password you will need to wait 5-10 minutes after reseting your password for the change to be processed OR refresh your browser window. If you still cannot access GoVIEW, please contact the eCore Helpdesk at 678-839-5300 or 1-855-93ECORE (1-855-933-2673) or ecore@westga.edu.
