They are delivered via technology and do not require students to travel to a classroom for instruction. eCore and eTuition are differentiated by:
Do the 12-hour or 15-hour tuition rate caps apply to Online Learning classes? There is no maximum tuition cap for eCore 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? eCore and eTuition hours do not count in the calculation to reach the 1 semester hour recreation & wellness fee threshold or the 4 semester hours activity fee threshold at which these fees are assessed. All other mandatory fees apply.
