NORFOLK, VA. (WAVY) – Old Dominion University officials announced Friday that the college plans to start the spring semester practically after the surge in coronavirus cases.
The university says the semester will be distance learning for “at least the first two weeks” from January 19 to February 1.
Distance learning for ODU means “almost all classes are offered online, with the exception of a limited number of courses and labs that require in-person hours,” read a letter posted to the Monarch Community.
Students should expect to hear from the faculty if they are included on these courses.

The college says it will continue to monitor the situation and “prevailing conditions will determine whether further changes are needed.”
The ODU offices are expected to reopen on January 4th as planned for student support services as well as for academics and researchers.
The college’s decision to postpone student arrival on campus and face-to-face tuition was made by the university’s executive policy team.
