For a select number of exceptionally well-qualified students, ODU has established a linked doctoral program that enables students to be admitted directly into the Ph.D. program upon completion of the baccalaureate degree. This program encourages admitted students to work closely with faculty members and pursue a research experience. The student may opt to obtain the master's degree along the way to the doctorate.
Engineering students with GPA >= 3.0 can apply for the BME graduate program through a linked B.S./Ph.D. program
Students can take two graduate courses double counted for the B.S. degree and a graduate degree
No need for a formal application such as reference letters, essay, and GRE scores
For B.S./Master programs, students need only 24 credit hours and can start working with a research advisor during their senior year
