The nice thing about ODU is you pay per credit hour. One thing you can use is our tuition calculator, which is a great resource that's available on the ODU website. You can actually plug in how many credits or courses you plan to take, whether or not you plan to live on campus, and if so, what building? All of that is going to help you curate what your exact cost is going to be.
The Academic Common Market is a program that allows students to receive in state tuition, if their home state does not have their major. So for me specifically, I am a student from Maryland that is studying Marine Biology. But since Maryland doesn't have that program at the undergraduate level, I am able to attend ODU while still receiving in state tuition.
ODU prospective students can obtain scholarships a number of ways to pay for college. One way would be through the merit scholarship process, which we in admissions actually award directly based on academic merit. Also, students can obtain additional scholarships through the Financial Aid section of our website, where they will see resources pertaining to endowments, all the way down to university internal scholarships. The Student Activity resume is actually a culmination or a listing of all of the Student Activities that one has been involved in, while in high school. Our Financial Aid University Scholarship Coordinator can actually use that information to find specific funding or scholarships that pertain to that activity. And lastly, I recommend the FAFSA. Of course that Free Application for Student Aid is going to get them the federal funding as well as state funding that they can use to pay for school.
Affordability is important and picking the institution that you want to call your next home away from home. Overall, Old Dominion University is a affordable research driven institution that offers students experience and guarantee.
