The eCore program allows students to take online core curriculum classes instead of or in addition to the traditional classes taught on campus.
While the eCore students do not appear in a classroom for a specified time period but instead fulfill their course obligations from a computer to which they have access, they are REQUIRED to take at least one but often two proctored exams. These exams must be administered at an approved testing site according to the time frame for testing provided by the eCore Center at the University of Georgia.
The Testing Office at UWG is an approved eCore testing site and will administer eCore midterms and finals for those students wishing to test here. The steps to schedule an eCore exam are simple:
- At the beginning of the semester, identify whether your eCore class has a proctored midterm, a proctored final, or both. Be sure to note the deadlines established for making your testing appointments.
- If you wish to take your test at UWG, call the Testing Office (678-839-6435) to schedule an appointment. Because eCore exams are now administered on computer, we offer eCore testing on specified dates and at specified times. Within the time frame available, you choose the time you wish to start. There is a $10 charge, check or cash, for each eCore exam that we administer. That fee is paid when you come to take the test. You will need to tell us the date and time you’re coming, your name, and the name of your eCore class and instructor.
- Once you have confirmed your appointment with the Testing Office, then you go online to your eCore website and find the “proctored examination request” form. It is that form that you fill out and submit to the eCore Administrative Services Office at the Universty of West Georgia indicating that you have an appointment with a testing site and that your exam should be released to that location. If you do not submit this form prior to the deadline established, you will be charged a late fee by the eCore Administrative Services Office at UWG. (This late fee is payable by credit card; it is not a fee the Testing Office collects.)
- Report to the UWG Testing Office, 110 Strozier Hall, for your testing appointment. Be sure to have photo ID and the $10 testing fee.
NOTE: You must make your appointment with the university’s Testing Office BEFORE you submit your proctored examination request form. Also remember that if you do not submit your proctored examination form, the eCore Administrative Services Office at West Georgia will not know to release your exam to us.
