Non-Degree Students

Non-degree admission is available to applicants who do not choose to apply for admission to a degree program but wish to enroll in course work at Old Dominion University. Federal financial aid is not available for nondegree students, except for those in approved teacher certification programs. 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 prior to registering for courses.

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