Guidelines and Policies

Online Distance Learning (ODL) is a new generation of online courses using the Moodle course management platform. ODL allows you to earn college credit anywhere you can access the Internet. ODL courses are equivalent to classroom-delivered courses offered on the LSU campus, but use the flexibility of Internet technology solutions to provide convenient anytime/anywhere access to learning tools, including online examinations. Admission to LSU is not required for enrollment in ODL college credit courses. You may enroll at any time and take up to six months to complete a course. If you are a currently admitted LSU student, you must have permission from your school or college dean’s office before enrolling in an ODL course.

LSU continues to offer web-enabled and print-based college credit distance learning courses through the Independent & Distance Learning program. Below are links to the ODL policies, guidelines, and resources.
