|MEM Course Registration|
CITI Training - Responsible Conduct of Research
All ODU graduate students must complete the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) seven core training modules in the fundamentals of Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). The knowledge and philosophy presented in the RCR training can enhance the professional development of all students, regardless of discipline.
You must complete the CITI training during your first 12 credits of enrollment at ODU. The training is free for registered ODU students. Paid CME/CEU credits are not required to successfully complete the RCR modules. Your ODU University Identification Number (UIN) is required to register for the training.
After you complete the modules, your student records will be updated automatically. If you have questions or issues, please contact MEM Advisor Dr. Kim Sibson (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Military DL Associate Director Dr. Bill Gideon (email@example.com).
A new 90-day term for every course starts each Monday. It is recommended that students register for no more than two courses concurrently. Each course is a three credit hour offering (except for the one-credit capstone course) and may be completed in any sequence.
All MEM CD-ROM students (Ashore & NCPACE) must register for MEM courses through ODUOnline's form. You will be registered within 10 business days (usually sooner).
Your bill is payable to ODU upon registration. You will be registered for courses within 10 business days of submitting your information on the MEM course registration form (usually sooner).
Please check your ODU email regularly. All information on your tuition balance, payment deadlines, posted payments, and related announcements will be sent to your ODU email account. You should also check LEO Online to verify your registration, find tuition payment deadlines, and make payments.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your account is paid and that all documents (e.g., tuition aid, GI benefits, etc.) are received by ODU's Office of Finance in a timely manner. If tuition is not received when due, you may be liable for late/penalty fees.

All NCPACE and Ashore students are required to designate a proctor in order to complete exams. The procedures for designating and using a proctor are very important. Please share them with your proctor and observe all honor code requirements.
- NCPACE students: Utilize your command ESO or command designated representative as a proctor.
- ASHORE students: Authorized proctors include faculty members, employees at college/university testing centers, employees at military education centers, or military civilian supervisors who provide training/administer exams as part of their duties. A proctor cannot be your relative or a currently enrolled student.
There are three basic steps to designate a proctor:
- Download our Proctor Designation Form (PDF)
- Complete the form with your proctor
- Email, mail, or fax the completed form to the specified Old Dominion University address/fax number.
ODU will mail exams to the proctor after the Proctor Request Form is received.
Please see MEM Proctor & Student Guidelines for the form and detailed instructions for proctors.
Submission of Materials to be Graded
MEM Ashore & NCPACE students turn in their completed examination materials to their designated proctor, who returns materials to be graded directly to the University by traceable mail no later than 30 days after the term end date (the three-month term selected). Proctors should retain a copy of completed materials in the event that the package is lost in the mail.
Delays and Extensions
If there is a delay or a need for an extension, NCPACE & Ashore students should contact Dr. Bill Gideon at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an extension.
