Benefits to eMajor

High-Demand, Career-Ready Programs

As part of Governor Deal’s High Demand Career Initiative (HDCI), top employers from across the state gathered to discuss their most in-demand jobs and skills, and those that they were having trouble filling with the current Georgia workforce. eMajor degrees are designed to produce highly-qualified graduates that can meet the demands of those employers.

Affordable Tuition

eMajor tuition is the same for students at all partner institutions, and was recently reduced by 20% - from $250/credit hour to $199/credit hour starting Fall 2016.

Student Success Team

At eMajor, we are dedicated to the success of our students. Our outreach starts before the first day of class, with online tutorial classes and personal start-of-term phone calls. During the term, we work closely with our instructors to monitor student activity in each class, and engage with students through phone calls and email in an effort to improve performance.

Public USG Institutions

There are a lot of online schools out there, and as a prospective student it can be difficult to distinguish the good from the bad. eMajor degrees are taught through and awarded by public, regionally accredited institutions within the University System of Georgia. With eMajor, you can trust that the degree you’re earning is from a quality, reputable college or university that employers will know.

Credit for Prior Learning

We understand that students can acquire learning from a variety of sources outside of the traditional classroom including work experience and military training. eMajor programs offer an opportunity for those prior learning experiences to be assessed for college credit through methods like portfolio submission and credit by exam among other possibilities. Learn more about credit for prior learning opportunities with eMajor.

Free Online Tutoring

All eMajor students have free, unlimited access to Smarthinking, an online tutoring service. With Smarthinking you can connect with an e-structor and interact with a live tutor, submit your writing for any class to the online writing lab, or submit a question to be answered by an actual tutor.

Convenience and Flexibility

eMajor courses are taught entirely online in an asynchronous format. Students are not required to log in for assigned “class times.” Each course has a syllabus and schedule to follow, but students are free to complete these assignments before work in the morning, on a lunch break, or even in their pajamas after kids are put to bed. And with full 16-week courses in addition to accelerated 8-week courses, finishing your degree is more flexible than ever with eMajor.

Accessible Course Design

eMajor courses are designed to expand a student’s educational experience independent of time, location and physical boundaries. Students with special needs or disabilities will find a welcoming, accessible environment in eMajor. All of our courses comply with ADA and Section 508 requirements to accommodate students with disabilities or special needs.
