Check Your Application Status


How you applied for admission informs how you'll access your portal. Please read carefully

The application portal is where you can check your application status, review, and complete all outstanding items. Once our office has received and processed all required items, your portal page will indicate a "100% Complete" status.


Common Application Applicants, Follow These Steps


IMPORTANT NOTE: As a Common Applicant, you need to create an ODU account to monitor your application review status. This is a new and separate account (created using your Common Application information) therefore the 'Forgot Password' prompt will not work in the initial setup.

  1. Access the Application Portal page
  2. Click "Create Account" and use the EXACT FIRST NAME, LAST NAME, AND EMAIL associated with your Common Application account. This important step will link your Common Application to your new ODU account.
  3. Once on your personal page, select the "Active Application"
  4. View your "Checklist" on the right of your personal page
