Application Dates & Deadlines

If you have not talked to anyone at ODU yet, we encourage you to contact us before applying. An Enrollment Coordinator will personally review your application materials and any transfer credits you may have to make sure the application process is a smooth one.

Undergraduate Online Programs

To start at ODU in a particular semester, you will need to submit your application by a specific date prior to that semester. The Office of Admissions has a complete list of undergraduate application deadlines.

Graduate Online Programs

To be accepted into a graduate program, you will need to 1) be accepted into ODU as a degree-seeking graduate student, and 2) be accepted into the program of your choice. The application deadline may vary depending on the program. Check our web site for specific program details, or contact us to learn more.

Certificate, Licensure and Endorsement Programs

You can often take courses for a certificate or a licensure/endorsement program as a non-degree seeking student. Please visit these program pages for eligibility details, or contact us to learn more.
