Military Program Pathways

A military pathway is a route to a degree that could save time, money, and effort without compromising academic rigor. 

Our pathways incorporate credit that may be earned outside the classroom though examinations, experience, and/or training with requirements that must be satisfied either at ODU or another regionally accredited school. 

By using a military pathway, a student could start at ODU with a significant amount of credit without ever previously attending college.

ODU has signed pathway agreements for the following bachelor's degree programs. The military pathway documents provide details about required courses and how credits may be earned outside the classroom.
