    Beginning in January of 2018, ODU’s Salute to Service Scholarship will cover up to $3,000 in tuition per semester that is not already covered by military education benefits, or other state and federal grants and scholarships. In addition to covering tuition, the Salute to Service Scholarship may be applied toward other fees, including activity and orientation fees to reduce or completely cover the remaining cost of an ODU education.

  • Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act

    The Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 puts earning a college degree well within the reach of veterans who qualify for this generous educational benefit.

    • Eligibility is based on the total number of active duty months served post September 11, 2001.
    • Interested veterans should submit the required documentation and application to the Veterans Administration for review and approval.
    • Once approved, we will work with each qualifying veteran to keep their academic goals on track.
    • Additionally, ODU participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which provides additional funding to help close the gap between the assistance provided by Post-9/11 act and the actual cost of tuition.
