Welcome to eCore!

eCore – short for electronic core-curriculum – in conjunction with GHC online Area F courses, allows students the opportunity to complete their first two years of their collegiate careers in an online environment.. eCore courses are taught entirely online. eCore courses are designed, developed, taught and supported by faculty and staff from the University System of Georgia (USG).

eCore is a convenient and adaptable option for either getting started in college 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.

Student support services, including enrollment counseling, bookstore, library services, tutoring, test proctoring and disability services are coordinated through the eCore Administration.

How much do eCore classes cost?  eCore is $159 per credit hour and can be covered by financial aid.  Each class includes a free, digital textbook (lab kits and other supplies must be purchased for some science courses).  Most eCore classes require a proctored midterm and/or final; proctoring fees of typically $25 or less are in addition.  For more information about the cost of eCore classes compared to GHC courses, please visit our Tuition and Fees page.

Please visit the eCore / GHC-specific website for more information!
