Undergraduate

An unofficial copy of the leaving examination/certificate or degree verification/diplomas from the last full-time secondary school, college or university attended is required. A maximum of 24 credit hours of academic credit in non-degree status will transfer towards an undergraduate degree. Non-degree students should verify specific course requirements or prerequisites with a departmental advisor before registration.

Graduate

An unofficial copy of the leaving examination/certificate or degree verification/diplomas from the last full-time secondary school, college or university attended is required.

Additional Reference

All non-degree applicants must submit a copy of their non-immigrant visa and passport identity page. Those seeking an F-1 student visa are ineligible for non-degree study. However, if currently enrolled at a U.S. institution in F-1 status, non-degree, or incidental study may be permitted if you are 1. participating in a Practical (OPT) or Academic training program, or 2. a visiting student seeking a course not offered at your current institution. Both Old Dominion University and your F-1 program institution must be in approval.

Admission to non-degree study is not automatic, and does not imply admission to any University degree program. Students under suspension from another college or university are not eligible to attend as non-degree. All non-degree students must meet the continuance requirements as stated in the current University Catalog.
