The University was founded in 1930. The total enrollment is 23,086 students, among them are1,400 from 106 countries. Student-to-faculty ratio is 17:1. ODU offers 70 bachelor's degrees, 60 master's degrees, 36 doctoral degrees, 2 educational specialist degrees. Old Dominion University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.


Intensive English Program. The ELC offers six seven-week sessions each year. Each week, full-time students spend at least twenty hours in class studying grammar, reading/vocabulary, speaking/listening, and writing. 

A special course in TOEFL preparation is available to upper level students. Students may also participate in conversation exchanges with U.S. students.

There are five levels of regular day-time classes. Students will be assigned to the appropriate level of English instruction based on the placement test given at the beginning of each session. Proceeding to a higher level normally requires two seven-week sessions.

The Undergraduate Bridge Program. The Undergraduate Bridge Program is a university program designed for undergraduate students who are nonnative English speakers with TOEFL scores between 500 and 550 (iBT 61-80). The Undergraduate Bridge Program curriculum combines credit courses with a noncredit course in English.

Credit Courses: With the help of an advisor, Undergraduate Bridge Program students enroll in up to 2 classes (8 hours) of credit course work. One of these classes must be from the designated general education courses; the other class should be one that is needed for the student's degree.

Noncredit Courses: In addition to the credit courses, the Bridge student enrolls in an 8-hour noncredit ESL class. The curriculum for this noncredit class is designed to provide personalized assistance ,as well as general language instruction to improve the writing, reading, listening/note-taking and speaking skills needed for success at Old Dominion University.

The Graduate Bridge Program. Like the Undergraduate Bridge Program, the Graduate Bridge Program is a special course for graduate students who have been admitted to Old Dominion University and have TOEFL scores between 500 and 550 (iBT 61-80). The curriculum for the semester-long Graduate Bridge combines 7 hours per week of English instruction with one 3-hour credit course from the student's graduate program.
