Academic Resources for the ODUGlobal Student

24/7 support

Graduating with a high GPA is important to you, and helping you achieve that goal is important to Old Dominion University. 

That's why we have a bounty of tools available to help you—right at your fingertips. 

And don't forget, your student success director or advisor is just a call or email away. 

Studying and Research

Tutoring and peer groups are available through ODU's Tutoring & Mentoring tools. You can connect to the sessions online via web conferencing, or if you're in the Hampton Roads area, you can attend them in person.

ODUGlobal students can check out books from ODU libraries and libraries connected through InterLibrary Loan. The materials are mailed right to your door. Check out all the library services for distance learning in this online guide.


ODU's Writing Center provides counseling and workshops on improving college writing, including live online tutorials. Schedule a virtual appointment by calling 757-683-4013. Make sure to tell them you're an online student so they schedule an online session.

They also have some great YouTube videos to help you get started with writing papers and taking essay exams.

Student Support

Student Outreach and Support (S.O.S.) provides services to students who experience administrative, academic, or personal road blocks to their success at ODU. Contact S.O.S. if you need help with an unexpected life event that could interfere with your studies, concerns about university policies, or other concern. Start here to learn more about University policies, procedures, resources, and complaint options.

We want to make sure you're supported every step of the way on your path to achieving your goal. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything or encounter any stumbling blocks. We're here to help!
