    Admission Process

    In general, Ohio Dominican University operates on a rolling admission basis with application being considered as soon as all essential materials have been received. Students are usually notified of their status within two weeks of completing their application file. 

    All students are responsible for submitting a $100 deposit prior to registration. 

    Provisional Admission (for those students not full admitted prior to the application deadline)
    Applicants may be admitted provisionally pending receipt of official transcripts. An applicant must submit all required materials listed and unofficial copies of transcript(s) to be considered for provisional admission. ODU must receive official transcripts before the applicant can register for a second class.
