Welcome, Monarchs! 

On behalf of the Graduate School at Old Dominion University, I would like to extend you a warm welcome to our program. Congratulations on your decision to take the next steps in your higher education. We're happy you decided to choose ODU!

The New Graduate Student Orientation is designed to give you an overview of University services as well as policies and procedures in relation to your graduate education. Get started with the Orientation Modules.

You will have access to this training module throughout the entire semester. We encourage you to review all of the modules initially, and then come back to review them again should questions arise.

You will be asked to do an evaluation of this training in the final orientation module. Your feedback is important to us and helps us revise and improve training. We look forward to your comments and suggestions.

If you have any questions regarding Graduate School, please email us at graduateschool@odu.edu.If you have questions related to a specific service or topic covered in the orientation modules, you can reach out to the specific departments providing the information.

Reign on!

Missy Barber, Associate Director for Administration & Academic Services
