Welcome to eCore!



What is eCore?


eCore, short for electronic core curriculum, is a statewide collaborative program which enables students to earn core credits online while remaining enrolled at CSU. eCore utilizes  GoVIEW to access courses. eCore courses are taught entirely online. However, some courses may require one or more proctored exams at a testing center, which may require an additional fee. eCore courses are designed, developed, taught and supported by faculty and staff from the USG. The eCore 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. See the list of course descriptions for a complete list of courses offered through eCore.

Columbus State University has partnered with eCore to enhance and expand its online core curriculum offerings. Any admitted CSU student has the opportunity to register for these courses, but before registering there are a few things you must do first by following the steps on the registration page.

Tuition and Fees
