Getting Started with Online Learning

Thinking about enrolling in an online course or program at Gordon State College?

Online Programs of Study

GSC offers several entirely online, bachelor-level completion degree programs aimed at accommodating our busy, working student populations. These programs generally require completion of the core and Associate's level work prior to entering the upper level program, check with your advisor on program entry requirements.

In addition to our Bachelor-level completion programs, Gordon State College offers entirely online, hybrid, and evening core course options to allow you to complete the equivalent to an associate degree. 

Gordon online courses are taught by Gordon professors for Gordon students using our learning management system, Brightspace by D2L.

Gordon is an affiliate of eCore, an initiative of the University System of Georgia. eCore courses are Gordon State College courses but are managed by the University System of Georgia and use a separate learning management system called GoView.  eCore utilizes its own academic calendar which may be different from the Gordon State calender. Any student wishing to take an eCore class must first complete the eCore training and quiz to be eligible to register.

After acceptance, you may begin registering for classes.

State Authorization

The United States government and individual states mandate that institutions offering distance education (online learning) have the approval of each state to provide distance education to residents of that state. To meet these requirements, Gordon State College participates in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) and is an approved NC-SARA institution in Georgia. As GSC does not have a “physical presence” in California, which is not a NC-SARA state, we meet the requirements to offer online programs and courses in that state.
