Earlier this morning, ETSU’s Desire to Learn website locked out what campus President Noland said was “thousands of students.”

This purging was due to an error in a program that was run earlier that morning.

“The parameters for the program we ran were not entered correctly. Luckily we caught the error early and were able to start reinstating the students as soon as possible,” said Joe Smith, Director of Media Relations.  

The program was a regularly scheduled purging of students who had yet to pay their school fees. Smith said it is run several times during this point in the semester.
