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. 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

How are Online Learning classes identified in the class schedule on the MGA website?  eCore, eCampus, and eTuition classes are fully online. Fully online courses are identified as 95% to 100% online. They are delivered via technology and do not require students to travel to a classroom for instruction. eCore and eTuition are differentiated by:

  • eCore  The course title begins with ECORE and the Campus is O.
  • eCampus  The course title begins with ECAMP and the Campus is A.
  • eTuition The course title begins with ONLINE and the Campus is Z.

What is the difference between Hybrid and Partially Online courses? Both of these course types fall under on-campus tuition rate.

  • Hybrid Courses: These courses meet face-to-face and technology is used to deliver up to 50% of class sessions.
  • Partially Online Courses: These courses are delivered more than 50% via technology, but visits to a classroom or similar site are required.

Do the 12-hour or 15-hour tuition rate caps apply to Online Learning classes?  There is no maximum tuition cap for eCore, eCampus, and eTuition. These charges are calculated separately from a student’s non-fully online schedule of classes.

Are Online Learning students exempt from any fees?  A student who is registered for only fully online classes is exempt from the activity fee, athletic fee, recreation & wellness fee and the parking fee. All other mandatory fees apply. Note: A student residing in on-campus housing enrolled in only fully online classes is not exempt from these fees.

Additional fees for proctored exams may apply to some online classes.
