What is eCore?

eCore® is short for electronic core-curriculum and allows University System of Georgia (USG) students the opportunity to complete their first two years of their collegiate careers in an online environment. eCore® courses are taught entirely online, except for the occasional proctored exam. eCore® courses are designed, developed, taught and supported by faculty and staff from the USG.

VSU students can enroll in eCore® classes to complete their core coursework in a fully-online environment.  If you are a current undergraduate, a transient student from another institution, or a junior or senior, graduate student or just need to pick up a core course, eCore® gives you the flexibility of an online course with a guarantee of quality in both instruction and content.  For more information about eCore®, visit the website or contact the VSU eCore® Advisor.

To view information about eCore® including textbook orders, proctored exams and course offerings visit the eCore® USG website.
