If you have additional questions about registering for admission in eCampus courses, contact

eCampus provides students the ability to enroll in digital online courses utilizing faculty from TCSG colleges, allowing students access to courses that would not have been available during the desired semester at their home technical college.

For a student, taking a course offered through eCampus is no different than taking other courses. A student enrolls in an eCampus course through Athens Technical College. The course is 100% online and is taught by a TCSG college instructor. The student receives credit for the course the same way they would if the course is completed at Athens Technical College.

The eCampus Home College is the college where the student is enrolled.

If you are an Athens Technical College student, then Athens Tech is your Home College. Students enrolled in another TCSG College should consider that college as the Home College.

An eCampus Host College is the TCSG College that is responsible for teaching the eCampus course.  The Host College may or may not be the enrolled students’ Home College.
