Great! Here’s a checklist to make sure you have a smooth admission process:

  1. Contact ODUOnline, and we'll connect you with a dedicated enrollment coordinator. They're experts in our online programs, distance learning options, and admission process.
  2. If you've attended college previously, request unofficial transcripts and share them with your enrollment coordinator. 
  3. Schedule an appointment with your enrollment coordinator to review any transcripts you may have, review the curriculum of your preferred program, and discuss the admissions process.
  4. Complete ODU's online application for admission. Your enrollment coordinator will help you make sure that your official transcripts (if you attended college previously) and any other documentation are forwarded to the Office of Admissions.
  5. Depending on your chosen program, a supplementary application to your major department may be needed. Your enrollment coordinator will tell you if that is the case.

What happens next?

If you are admitted to ODU, welcome to the Monarch family! You'll receive a letter from ODU's Admissions Office in Norfolk, Virginia. You'll have to pay a non-refundable admission deposit to secure your place in the upcoming class. But don't worry, it will be applied to your tuition and fees once you register for classes. In approximately four weeks, a transfer transcript will be available from LEO Online. Your enrollment coordinator will help you understand the evaluation and how the transfer credits apply to your ODU degree program.

In the meantime, take a look at some of our information for current students, and be sure to complete your new student checklist

If you are denied admission to ODU, don't get discouraged. Your enrollment coordinator will work with you to chart a path toward future admissions success. Admissions denial is often a short-term slowdown, not a permanent block to admission at ODU.
