Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
Fees are not so bad because they offer a lot of money and the school does not put to much stress on you to pay back loans. The institution allows you to check your payments online in order to help you keep up with how much you paid and how much you owe. Old Dominion payment plans are very helpful and financial aid is super.
Efrem from Chantilly, VA
The Money Spent At ODU is worth evey dime, you get your moneys worth.
Fanta from Silver Spring, MD
In-state tuition isn't too bad in combination with financial aid. My parents aren't too stressed about the fees.
Malcolm from Hampton, VA
It is reasonably priced for a four year university, and there are plenty of scholarships available.
Lindsay from Virginia Beach, VA
I personally would say that ODU is a bit expensive. It can be costly once you include housing and fees, but you get it back in the end. ODU gives away a lot of free things. There are a lot of activities and other things that students don't have to pay for. Students get into every home game for free and there is plenty of free food
Kyana from Richmond, VA
Quality education, Variety of social clubs and organizations, cultural opportunities, near the ocean and VA beach.
Tarique from Fredericksburg, VA
My tuition at ODU has gone to good use. The professors are very dedicated to their students and will do whatever it takes to help them succeed, such as recommending tutoring sessions. The food in the cafeterias, especially Whitehurst, is top notch. The high cost of tuition is certainly worth it.
Shelby from Norfolk, VA
The tution is good compared to other schools I've did research on. Being that they have a great dental program.
JaCaia from WAKEFIELD, VA
I was really nervous about going to school on a big campus, not because it was a big campus, but because I did not want to feel like a tiny little guppy in the huge ocean. The faculty and staff of ODU really take care of all the students and take pride in it. They help make me feel valued and important which is great.
