We get it – college is a huge investment. That’s why we do everything we can to make an ODU education attainable for each and every student. We believe in being transparent about the true cost of an ODU education. No, we won’t nickel and dime you, and we certainly won’t blindside you with unexpected fees. At ODU, what you see is what you get: an outstanding (and affordable) college education and experience.
