What is eCore?

eCore - short for electronic core-curriculum - allows University System of Georgia (USG) students the opportunity to complete their first two years of their collegiate careers in an online environment.

How does my advisee take eCore classes?

Before a student can register for eCore classes through Banner Web, they must complete eCore’s Introduction Quiz.

Is there a cost difference?

Yes. An eCore class costs $159 per credit hour.

How do students get books for their online courses?

Except for lab sciences, eCore utilizes open educational resources. Information on accessing these free resources is available within the course. View the course descriptions.


Links to all things eCore, such as how to Withdraw, Calendars, etc., can be found at

Note: Students need to be aware that the eCore Academic Calendar is different from the ABAC academic calendar.
