RODP Permit Request


New For Spring 2016 Registration

Beginning with registration for Spring 2016, some RODP courses will not require a permit. If you are a student interested in enrolling in an RODP course that does not require a permit, simply register for the course as you would any other ETSU course.

For courses still requiring an RODP permit, please complete the form located at the bottom of this page.

Please note that the documents referenced above do not provide real-time information. For the most current version of Spring 2016 courses, please use the Goldlink course search. Be sure to read the course note for information regarding permit requirements.



It is the responsibility of the student to check that the RODP courses being requested fulfill their program/course requirements. You should check with your program advisor before enrolling in any RODP courses.

The Spring 2016 deadline for requesting RODP permits is Monday, January 18, 2016 at 4:30 pm. No permits will be entered after this time.


Use this form to request a permit for a Regents Online Degree Program Course. RODP Courses qualify to meet general education when the RODP courses match ETSU course prefixes and numbers.   RODP courses are delivered completely online.   All course information and course work is done online, however, you may be required to come to campus (or a campus close to you) to take a proctored exam.


Fees for RODP courses are accessed differently than ETSU courses. Students enrolled in an RODP Course will pay the standard maintenance fee, out of state fees as applicable, plus an additional RODP fee. Use the tuition estimator to determine your approximate fees.


Students should use the RODP Bookstore to determine which book is used for their RODP course. The ETSU bookstore may not carry the book and will not know what book is required. The RODP Bookstore can be accessed at: Once the book ISBN is determined the book can be purchased from any location.


After the RODP Permit is entered you will still need to register for the requested course through Goldlink. Permit requests following the first day of class will not be permitted. Students should complete registration before the first day of classes.

Fields marked with * are required.

Have you met with your advisor about the course(s) you are requesting? Yes
  **Important!!! By submitting this form you state that you have read all the information above. You also state that you understand that some RODP courses may not fulfill your program/course requirements, please check with your advisor to make sure they do. If you are currently enrolled in an RODP online program your advisor will enter your permits for you.

Please click on the Submit button only once - it may take a moment or two to release.
