You'll apply to be a graduate student at ODU, and to your specific program. Each program may have admission requirements in addition to the general application. Your graduate program director can tell you more details, including specific deadlines and what you need to start your application.

You've contacted the graduate program director and are ready to apply to ODU! When you start your online application, make sure you select "completely online" as your intended/preferred course delivery method.

If you live near our main campus in Norfolk, Virginia, you may also take classes on campus. Other ODU-affiliated higher education centers may be an option depending on your program and location.
