About Old Dominion University

Old Dominion University is a public research institution with a diverse population of nearly 25,000 students. ODU’s main campus is located just minutes from Chesapeake Bay in Norfolk, VA. In addition to its broad selection of academic programs, ODU is a leader in online learning.

Reasons to Choose Old Dominion

  • Old Dominion University offers 73 bachelor’s degrees, 60 master’s, and 35 doctoral degrees.

  • Research teams at Old Dominion receive $88 million in annual funding, for more than 400 groundbreaking projects.

I was able to transfer to Old Dominion University to complete my Bachelors in Finance and a Minor in Risk Management and Insurance through the guaranteed admissions program. Due to the foundation that NOVA helped to put down for me I was able to further specialize and still be on the same track to graduate on time as those students who had started their degree at Old Dominion University.
