There's a lot to consider when starting an online bachelor's degree program. Our enrollment coordinators can answer your questions and help you create a plan to take classes in a way that saves you time and money.

We'll also provide a free, unofficial transcript evaluation for any college credits you may already have. Whether you're transferring or starting a new bachelor's degree, we will help you every step of the way.

As a student at ODU, you'll have an academic advisor who is an expert in your chosen program. He or she will connect you with our academic resources, including the library, writing center, tutoring services and more. You'll also have access to counseling, educational accessibility, military services, and more.

Your advisor is with you until your degree is in your hand. No matter how long you study with us, you'll have our unique, unparalleled, and unwavering support.

When I thought about going back to school, I was so intimidated by online classes. But my advisor was amazing. She was such a cheerleader.
