International Admissions
Old Dominion University

Norfolk, VA 23529 USA


All transcripts, translations and standardized tests must be official, sealed, stamped by the institution or testing agency and sent directly to Old Dominion University. Testing authorities may include the Registrar or the Principle/Controller of Exams. When English is not the language of instruction, academic transcripts and course descriptions are required in both English and one's native language. Credentials submitted during the application process become the property of Old Dominion University and cannot be returned.


Old Dominion adheres to strict application deadlines. A complete application and supporting credentials must be received by the stated program deadline, or admission consideration will be applied to the next available semester. Certain graduate programs require early deadlines for either admission or financial assistance.

Financial Assistance

International graduate students are eligible to apply for financial assistance in the form of departmental research and teaching assistantships. Availabilty is limited, and assistance deadlines are often much earlier than standard admission deadlines. Direct inquiries concerning assistantship requirements to the Graduate Program Director of the desired program of study.
