Courses for the University of North Georgia’s (UNG) electronic core-curriculum (eCore), will begin Aug. 15, one week before traditional classes begin on all five UNG campuses.
eCore courses are designed, developed, taught, and supported by faculty and staff from the University System of Georgia (USG) and allows students the opportunity to complete their first two years of college curriculum online.
UNG had the highest enrollment in eCore courses of any USG institution this summer. Since spring 2014, eCore enrollment at UNG has more than doubled and current enrollment projections anticipate 1,500 new and continuing students this fall, which would represent a 47 percent increase from the summer.
"eCore is great for both traditional and non-traditional undergraduate students," said Stephanie Hulsey, online student success coordinator for UNG’s Department of Distance Education and Technology Integration (DETI). "These courses help students reach a 15-hour course load in a way that is convenient for those who may be balancing jobs and family responsibilities."
eCore offers all core classes including English, chemistry and communications. This fall, music and art appreciation, and advanced level Spanish will be added to give students more options.
