Fall Academic Calendar

NEW WITHDRAW DEADLINES effective Fall 2022
Withdraw deadline for all non-semester-long courses (i.e., Summer sessions, Maymester, Winter Term, or 8-week sessions) is now the day prior to the last day of classes for that session (not the last day of classes).

Withdraw deadline for semester-long (16-week) sessions is the last day of cl;asses for that session.

Please refer to the detailed calendar dates for each session (below) for the withdraw deadlines.

Students should use Banner Registration in LEO Online to withdraw. Students with holds preventing any registration transactions may email register@odu.edu from the @odu.edu email address, with name and University ID Number (UIN) and the SUBJ/CRSE/CRN(s) of the classes to be withdrawn. A confirmation email will be sent when the request has been processed.

Requests for withdraws must be received by the deadline. Requests received after the deadline will not be processed.
