    Student Responsibilities

    Dropping or Withdrawing from Class

    If you withdraw from a course or courses, you will be billed immediately with payment due to Old Dominion University.

    Non-payment does NOT result in automatic withdrawal. You will remain enrolled in a class regardless of payment status until you withdraw.

    Grade Minimum and Report

    ODU will bill GEICO for your tuition at the end of each class or semester. To receive the tuition benefit from GEICO, you must:

    1. Earn a grade of C- or higher in each approved class, and
    2. Upload proof of your final grade and your ODU financial account summary to GEICO within 30 days of the class end date.

    If one of these requirements is not met, you will become responsible for paying your tuition balance with ODU.

    Unpaid Student Balances

    If you become responsible for paying tuition to ODU, you will receive an invoice with the total and payment due date.

    If you do not pay your invoice, then your ODU account will be placed on hold. When there is a hold on your account, you will not be able to access your transcripts, receive a diploma, or register for future classes. This hold will remain in place until you set up a payment plan or pay the balance in full.

    If payment is not made or a payment plan is not set up within 120 days of receiving the invoice, your account will be turned over a collection agency and a collection fee will be added.
