Assessment results are used to improve student learning and the educational experience at Old Dominion University and do not become part of students' records.


Senior Assessment

Check out the timetable below for when you should receive the invitation to complete your Senior Assessment.

All graduating Seniors must complete the Senior Assessment.

Completing the Senior Assessment (which also includes the Senior Student Satisfaction Survey) is a University requirement for graduation and must be completed during the Senior's last semester.

Failure to complete the survey before the respective commencement ceremony will not impact the student's ability to participate in the Commencement ceremony.
