firstname.lastname@example.org Step 3 - eCore Online Registration and Quiz Before you can register for an eCore course, you must first complete the eCore Online Orientation and quiz.
You will receive follow-up registration instructions: http://ecore.usg.edu/prospective/orientation/abac Step 4 - ABAC Registration Log into your Banner Web account and register for your eCore courses. New students taking bothe eCore and on-campus classes will register during Orientation. Step 5 - Watch for your Welcome Letter The eCore welcome and registration letter contains login instructions and information on purchasing your textbooks. Watch for this letter which will be emailed to your ABAC email address beginning two weeks before classes start. This letter contains information on how to login, how to purchase textbooks, how to get help, and other important course information. It is important for you to try your login information BEFORE classes start, and that you make arrangements to have your course materials available BEFORE classes start. Super Important Helpful Information First Day of Classes It is VERY important that you log into your eCore courses on the FIRST DAY of class and make contact with your Instructor. Academic Calendars ABAC's academic calendar is different than eCore's academic calendar. Meaning that drop/add, withdrawal, midterm, and final exam dates will be different. Be sure to familiarize yourself with both calendars, especially if you are taking both eCore and on-campus classes. Textbooks The eCore textbooks typically are not found in the campus bookstore. Be sure to order your books in time for the start of classes. Here is a link to the eCore Online Bookstore -- MBS Direct:
