Non-degree students must complete an online application for admission into the university.

Academic advisors are not assigned to nondegree-seeking students, but students are strongly encouraged to contact their academic department of interest or advisor@odu.edu prior to registering for courses.

Undergraduate students are advised to take no more than 24 semester hours as nondegree students.
