Your UIN (Student ID) is located on your offer of admission. This important ID number will enable various ODU departments (ex. Office of Student Financial Aid) to serve you more efficiently in the event you have any questions or concerns about your student record.

MIDAS (Monarch Identification and Authorization System) is ODU's log-in and password management system. Use your MIDAS ID and password to log into most University applications and services, such as email, Canvas, myODU, Leo Online, Banner and many other important resources.

  1. Visit and click Need an Account
  2. Enter your University Identification Number (UIN), located on your decision letter. Follow the rest of the prompts and click Submit

Your personal checklist enables quick and easy completion of steps to ensure a smooth transition to ODU. The housing application, new student experience course enrollment, registration for Discover Your Pride (orientation), and more are included.

In order to be considered for need-based federal financial aid and scholarships, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Old Dominion University's FAFSA code is 003728.

To have a financial aid package developed, you must have a FAFSA application on file. Student financial aid packages will become available beginning mid-March.
