In Fall 2001, TBR launched the Regents Online Degree Program (RODP), a web-based initiative to support the System’s long-range goal of providing quality postsecondary education to Tennesseans who cannot complete their degrees without 24/7 online course access.
Over the span of twenty years, the program’s name evolved to become TN eCampus. The initial guiding principles and groundwork laid for the program continues to be educationally sound because a systemwide collaborative approach to planning, development, quality, accountability and shared responsibility is fostered and supported.
The distinctive hallmarks of TN eCampus have withstood the test of time.
- All TN eCampus programs and courses are equivalent to those offered at physical campus locations.
- No differentiation is made between online and on-ground delivery on transcripts or diplomas.
- Course credit transfers seamlessly between partner institutions.
- All participating institutions are regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) or the Council on Occupational Education (COE).
