Today ODU is one of the few public universities with a Carnegie Foundation “Doctoral Universities: Higher Research Activity” distinction. Our professors create knowledge, as well as share it. Attesting to the quality of its programs, Old Dominion University is accredited but the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award baccalaureate, master’s, education specialist, and doctoral degrees. In addition, numerous programs of study at the University are individually accredited by specialized agencies recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation.
