RD168 - Old Dominion University Transfer Grant Recipients

    Executive Summary:
    Old Dominion University identified and paid $112,400 to 136 eligible VA Transfer Grant recipients toward the SCHEV goal of 140. When we contacted our SCHEV Financial Aid liaison on March 15, 2016 concerning additional potential candidates we were informed no additional funding remained.

    Old Dominion University also actively promotes degree attainment in its recruitment initiatives. In the current academic year, we maintained contact with 26,082 students who at some time indicated an interest in attending ODU or ODU Online. We invited transfer students to visit campus, and held informational sessions at many VCCS schools, including on-site admission events at Tidewater Community College, Thomas Nelson Community College, and NOVA (Loudon, Manassas, Annandale, and Woodbridge). In addition to these efforts, ODU piloted a reverse transfer program with Tidewater Community College to help students in Southern Hampton Roads transition between the schools.
