Adding an RODP Course

RODP courses require a permit not because the course is full, but because there are some significant differences between the RODP course and a traditional ETSU online course. While you still receive ETSU credit for the course, course materials will not be delivered via the ETSU D2L learning environment. Instead, you will access a completely different D2L site using a separate user name and password to retrieve your RODP course content.

If you're interested in taking an RODP course, the first step is to complete the RODP permit request form. Then, after you receive a confirmation email indicating that an RODP permit has been issued, follow these steps to successfully register for the permitted RODP course.
