Tuition Payment is due:

  • On the due date specified for the term, OR at the time of registration (if you register after the tuition due date).
  • Even if you have a pending domicile (residency) decision
  • Even if you did not receive an e-bill notification
  • Even if you do not attend the class for which you are registered

If you miss the due date:

If you do not pay tuition on time, your account will be subject to late penalties, financial holds, and collection fees.

You will remain registered even if you do not pay your tuition. Nonpayment of tuition and non-attendance does not release you from responsibility to pay for registered courses.





E-Billing

Old Dominion University no longer mails paper bills. All billing is done via e-mail (e-billing). Failure to receive a billing statement does not release you from the responsibility to pay charges.

With Old Dominion University's E-Billing System, you can see your latest billing statements and make payments. You can also add your parents, guardians, or employer as "Authorized Users" to access your bill and set up stored payment profiles.

On your e-bill is a statement of your current charges with Old Dominion University, and the due date for each charge is displayed to the left of each applicable charge. Please pay by the due date to prevent penalty fees being assessed to your account. If you have questions regarding your bill, please contact your Account Representative.


Managing Your Account

E-Bill Notifications

  • Old Dominion University uses e-mail billing notification.
  • Notifications will be sent to your official ODU.EDU address issued to all admitted students.
  • E-mail accounts must be activated by the student.
  • Failure to activate or maintain your official e-mail account will not be a valid reason for failure to pay on time.
  • Failure to receive an ebill does not release you from making your tuition payment by the deadline.
  • You can access ODU's Student Accounts Suite via Leo Online (use MIDAS ID and password).

Students on a Payment Plan

When on a payment plan, students will continue to receive a comprehensive billing statement each month for total charges with the original tuition deadline as the due date. This statement does not provide payment plan installment due dates or amounts. Students must sign into LEO Online to see the amounts and due dates of each installment.

Timing Issues for Billing

Advance bills are sent via e-mail to the odu.edu student e-mail address. Student e-mail addresses must be activated by the student provided the student is registered at least 30 days prior to the opening of the term.
