Instead of heading straight to class from work, she uses eCore – an online system that focuses on “core” classes that every Georgia state college or university student must take – for one or two courses each semester. Cost was her only reason for not taking more classes, Small said. On-campus credit hour charges at Dalton State this year are $97.27, compared with $189 for eCore. This fall, the cost of eCore classes will drop $20 per credit hour. It’s the first time the system’s Board of Regents has lowered tuition for the program since its 1999 launch, and a stark contrast to the tuition increases also approved last week at all 31 state campuses.
